“Waffles are definitely a weekend breakfast treat - this recipe comes from Christine Cushing. Adding the softly whipped egg whites to the batter will make the waffles nice and fluffy. Serve with pure Canadian maple syrup, fresh berries & whipped cream or pair with blueberry sauce (#78222) use Christine's words...wicked! Prep time includes "standing", cook time & # of servings has been estimated - it depends on your waffle iron.”
