Waffles

What’s a better way to begin a sunny spring morning then to whip up a batch of homemade waffles?  Below is my basic, go-to waffle recipe.  I usually make a batch of plain waffle batter and then get creative with it by adding all kinds of different ingredients: fresh berries, lemon zest with poppy seeds, apples and cinnamon, mini-chocolate chips, grated cheese and chives, and even, on occasion, rainbow sprinkles.  I also sometimes swap the milk and 2 tbsp of butter for buttermilk.
