My mother-in-law makes the waffles every time we visit. She is a fun grandma and always serves them with ice cream. How can you go wrong with waffles and ice cream for breakfast? That is if you are the grandma.
GOOD NIGHT WAFFLES
Most of the mixing for these waffles is done the night before. In the morning, just mix in the eggs, vanilla and a pinch of baking soda while the waffle maker is heating. Leftover batter may be covered and kept in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Heat your waffle maker in the morning, stir the batter and have a freshly baked waffle for breakfast.
