    When I’m serving brunch, I like to serve half a waffle per person, especially if I’m serving more food. If this is your entire brunch, though, you may want to double this recipe.

    Tip

    These waffles are great with many different toppings, including beans, guacamole, or spinach. Get creative and think of them like eggs Benny.

    Add water mixture to dry ingredients and blend with whisk until incorporated. Let sit for 30 to 60 minutes to settle.
