Homemade Waffles (Taste of Home) & Buttermilk syrup (Darlene A.)

Around my house we like to have breakfast for dinner, some of you may like store boughten waffle mix but what if you dont have any and the kids are hungry and ready to eat.  This recipe doesnt have any sugar in it so they are not sweet BUT thats what the syrup is for!!

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour       
 1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt                                 
2 eggs separated
1 cup milk                                 
1/4 cup butter, melted

In a small bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Combine egg YOLKS, milk & butter; stir into dry ingredients just until moist. In seperate bowl beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form, gently fold into batter.  Bake in a preheated greased waffle iron according to directions on iron or until golden brown. 

Buttermilk Syrup
 1 cube butter                                 
1 cup sugar
1/2 c. buttermilk (you can make your own)       
Cook until sugar is dissolved remove pan from heat then add:
1 tsp. vanilla                                   
1/2 tsp baking soda (this will make your syrup rise up so make sure you have room for it to swell)

If you want to try something more add fresh fruit (raspberries, blackberries, blueberries) to your waffles then pour the syrup over the top!!!

(a special thanks to my Aunt Darlene for helping me out with this recipe!!! Thanks for your encouragement! Love ya lots!!!)
