Best Crispy Waffles

This is my favorite recipe for a crisp waffle. If that’s the way you like them, don’t reduce the oil, cause that’s what makes them crispy! Lazy soul that I am, I mix the batter in a blender and use that as a pitcher to pour them conveniently. I freeze extra waffles for a quick into-the-toaster breakfast. Just add maple syrup, butter and some ham or bacon and you’ve got a wonderful weekend breakfast. I am also adding a modified version to this site using buttermilk (see "Useful Links" below.)
