Overnight Waffles
This recipe is based on the waffle recipe in The Fannie Farmer Cookbook. I believe it was published in 1896. My mom only ever relied on a few cookbooks and Fannie Farmer was one of those few. These waffles are thin and crisp on the outside and light and fluffy inside. A dash of cinnamon gives the dish a little depth of flavor.
