Overnight Waffles

Print Recipe
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.

“Man-Catcher” Brownies

"Man-Catcher" Brownies
The sugar, butter & egg ratios in these brownies reminded me of a pound cake my Great Aunts often made, so I thought why not give this recipe a shot. Shiny, crinkly crust with a chocolatey denseness might be a good place to start. ***Note: A simple way to improve chocolate baked treats (chocolate cake, brownies, chocolate pudding, etc) is to avoid the mass-market chocolate brands. Seek out high quality chocolate/cocoa. It's a little more expensive, but it will dramatically improve your desserts.
