I have an old Mirro cookbook from the 30s that has a ton of white flour recipes. As I've had success with Mirro pancakes, I decided to try its 'regulation waffle' recipe.
I think the recipe calls for a bit too much raising agent. The waffles were TALL. But all the butter seemed to have done the trick; the waffles did not stick to the irons one iota. When making the waffles a second time, we halved the recipe and only put in a half a tsp. baking powder. In addition, I added orange zest, vanilla & cacao nibs to the mix. The waffles turned out very well.
Here's a pic of the monster waffles cooking.
Another charity shop find is this (I assume) anti-Joseph McCarthy button.
Let's bring back it back, but with The Donald's surname instead. Heck, I'd wear one.
