“The recipe came from Bon Appetit - with a few changes from me. One by accident - the others by choice. I am not a baker, so was prepared to never ever attempt this again! But these are SO GOOD ! The waffles turn out light and fluffy - the salty ham, the sweet maple syrup - Heaven on a plate ! In my Belgian Waffle Maker I get 6 waffles.”
