This waffle recipe is just a bit different than the traditional, as it uses brown sugar instead of the standard white granulated sugar. The result is a richer tasting waffle with a hint of cinnamon in it.

If you need an alternative topping to maple syrup, try honey drizzled on top. You can also try these recipes for whipped strawberry butter or homemade blueberry sauce.
