From Grandma’s Country Kitchen — Waffles — Syrup

Who doesn’t love waffles??? There are so many varieties to making waffles, too.

This is the recipe Grandma used but I don’t have any memory of her making any for us. Hmmm.


2 eggs

2 cups buttermilk or soured milk

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

6 tablespoon soft shortening, (fresh bacon fat is good)

Beat eggs well. Beat in rest of ingredients. Mix until smooth.

Makes 8 waffles.

NEVER-FAIL SIRUP (That’s the way it was spelled on the paper.)

1 cup white sirup (syrup)

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup water

Pinch of salt

Maple flavoring

Stir together sirup, sugars, water and salt in a saucepan. Slowly bring to a boil stirring occasionally. Let boil 5 minutes. Add maple flavoring to taste. Makes a little over a pint.

Here’s another homemade recipe for syrup.

1 cup white sugar

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup water

Combine sugars and water in saucepan. Boil until sugar dissolves (about 3 minutes).

Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

I teaspoon maple flavoring (optional)

I have not made either of these recipes myself.

Enjoy your day!
