Buttermilk Cinnamon Spice Belgian Waffles

My family loves waffles; my grandson in particular. Apparently he also loves contributing to the blog. He helped with the photo shoot for this recipe, so styling kudos go to him.

These waffles have a lot of flavor. You can slice up fruit and top with whipped cream. Put on a pat of butter and cinnamon sugar or homemade preserves; or just use a generous pour of rich maple syrup. Whatever your preference, these are sure to make the whole family happy.
