So I need to be honest. I've never successfully made waffles. Until now at least. Normally when I attempt waffles I undercook them, prepare the batter wrong, or burn my hand on the waffle iron. So when I got a craving for waffles about a week ago I was scared and frankly a little disappointed.
But by some miracle I was able to absolutely nail this breakfast food. I also put my own little twist on the recipe I found online, adding orange zest and orange flavoring to the waffles. The brown sugar butter is a revelation from one of my favorite bloggers, Jessica Merchant. You can seriously eat this butter plain. And I did.
That cinnamon brown sugar butter almost steals the show. It's the perfect amount of sweet, and those flavors combine with the bright orange flavor in a beautiful way.
You might be pleased to know that I've had waffles for breakfast almost every day since I made these. Or you might be disgusted. Either or.
I think I love that cinnamon brown sugar butter more than I loved my last boyfriend. Do you think I can use it as lotion? Shampoo? Hold on I'm gonna go grab a spoonful.
