  • butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

This vintage recipe is from a 1955 Log Cabin Syrup magazine advertisement.

According to the ad, this is...

I recently purchased this exact waffle baker. While researching it, I happened upon this recipe. These are so good! We make them every weekend and top them with a homemade blueberry sauce.

I like these better than any of the waffle recipes I tried. I can fit 4 slices of bread in my Cuisinart Belgian waffle maker, so breakfast for 4 of us took about 10 minutes. This recipe/idea is a great discovery. Thanks!

Love it. Wish I had a bigger waffle iron. Can only do one slice of bread at a time in mine.

Very, very awesome idea! Tastes GREAT with whole grain toast. The outside of the bread gets just a tiny bit crisp - which I LOVE! My new favorite breakfast!

Just made it. I like it better than French toast or waffles. And it was easier than making either of those. I thought this was gonna be too good to be true but it works and it's amazing! Bravo guys for sharing this one.

Great idea Mr Breakfast! We made it as directed except we added a teaspoon of vanilla and a half teaspoon of orange zest to to the milk mixture. Loved everything about it, except I wished I had a bigger waffle iron... had to make one serving at a time. Delicious though.

Love it! I have a circle-shaped waffle maker so I can on;y make one of these at a time, but it works great and I'm going to recommend it to everybody. Super fun idea. Keep them (the ideas) coming!

I made them this morning in my large square Belgium waffle maker. Totally great! Only advice I have is to set waffle maker to medium. First ones I did were just slightly overdone. Also a dash of cinnamon and vanilla in the batter improved the flavor. This was easier then making French toast. Less clean up. Thankfully, nothing stuck to the waffle maker. Thanks for sharing this one. It's my favorite new breakfast!
