Sunday Brunch: The Greatest Waffle Recipe Ever

Sunday Brunch: The Greatest Waffle Recipe Ever

Robyn Lee was the first person to tell me about this waffle recipe, and I don't think it was a coincidence that she told me about it when we were both eating dinner with her friend Greg. Greg emailed Robyn this recipe a while ago, and he found it on this blog, which found it in the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. And then Robyn blogged about it. Got that? No matter. This recipe produces light, crisp, slightly moist, seriously delicious waffles. 'Nuff said.
