These waffles cook up to be the lightest and crispiest waffles you will ever have. The bulk of the mixing is done the night before so the waffle batter is ready and waiting for you in the morning- making for an easy and stress-free homemade breakfast! If you'd like to lighten these waffles up a little more, 1/4 cup butter works just as well. Top these delicious waffles off with some butter and syrup, or some beautiful pomegranate seeds.
