Waffles of Insane Greatness

The name has it right. These waffles are Insanely great. I made them last week and my friend and I barely talked the entire time we chowed. Honestly, there were more, “mmm’s” and “holy crap it’s so good’s” than any other conversation at the table! The amazing part of these waffles is the cornstarch...there is SO much in this recipe, and it makes these have the perfect crunch of an outside. The middle is a dense cake-like consistency and when this Buttermilk Caramel Syrup seeps into the middle you won’t be able to stop. I think I might need one. Right. Now. (The recipe only makes 4 belgian waffles, so be sure to change to work for your fam.)
