I have been collecting Cast Iron kitchen cookware for years It was made by "Griswold" since 1863 in Erie Pennsylvania-USA.
I have just purchased a hundred year old Waffle Iron made for woodstove use and have carefully seasoned it - but I still am breaking the waffles taking them out. So what I am looking for is the original Griswold printed recipe booklet for Waffle Batter.
It is unusual in that you mix a pitcher full and then let it rest overnight. In the morning you can bake the smoothest, crisp, golden brown sweet waffles, you ever tasted. There were two kinds
one made with Buttermilk and the other a touch of Vanilla. I'm making Maple
Syrup again this spring so must have the recipe by April first when I cook for the Firehouse Fundraiser.
Griswold also made waffle Irons 3 in a row for use in Diners but they were electric - but it could be the same recipe. I have dozens of recipes but none compare with the Griswold - they don't stick and ,as I remember , are just a little bit of heaven with fresh Maple Syrup and Coffee. mory
