As you can tell from the other recipes on this blog, my grandmother was not a purist when it came to food and she took to modern innovations and convenience foods very happily.
One of the convenience foods which was a regular presence in the home when I was growing up in the 1980s was American frozen waffles. When I ate them, grandma would tell me about the ‘old days’ when she had to make her own waffles with a waffle iron. This recipe is written proof of those homemade waffles.
In recent months, I bought an electric waffle iron (sadly, too late for grandma to enjoy hot, homemade waffles once again). I wonder how different the apparatus in the 1960s compared to the ones we have today?
