My husband wolfed it down before I could get a photo taken!

My husband loves this recipe! They reheat really well and are still delicious. My father-in-law likes them with molasses. Yum! Thanks so much for posting it!

I like a tasty waffle, so I added 9 tbs of brown sugar, 2 tbs vanilla, 2 drops of almond extract, 1 tsp mixed spice and approximately 3 tbs coconut milk powder. I also reduced the corn meal (ref...
