I bought a box of Cream of Wheat and was looking for other recipes to use it up when Myrna brought me some buttermilk left from her butter-making. This recipe from “www.creamofwheat.com” was a great way to use both.
My small, round waffle maker produced 8 thin, crispy waffles from this recipe, using a rounded half cup per waffle. I put any extras on a rack and let them cool, and then I freeze them for busy days. I separate mine with 2 sheets of waxed paper and put them in a gallon freezer bag to store them. They never last long. Try them with fruit and whipped cream for a real treat.
