“My Aunt Florence made the most wonderful waffles! Here is her 'secret' recipe, complete with her notes as follows: "These are the ingredients for one egg, and this amount makes two large square waffles. If you make more batter, and have any left over, you can make up the waffles, bake lightly, and wrap individual portions in waxed paper and put in freezer for future use. When needed, use toaster to heat, quite good." We ate these hot, with butter and warm maple syrup. They would be equally good dusted with powdered sugar and served with fresh strawberries and a cup of hot coffee or tea. I hope you enjoy!”
2 large waffles
