Belle Haven Waffles

16 May

Auntie Jan

These waffles have always been a Belle Haven favorite. (Belle Haven was the home of my mother’s second youngest sister Jan who has four children). They are light, fluffy, and make great pancakes as well. I remember when a handful of my cousins and I went to her friend Bob’s farm for pottery classes one summer when I was about ten. Auntie Jan made us waffles every morning before driving out to Bob’s.
