Mama Kay’s Waffles and Syrup

Posted By Amy

Mama Kay always made the best waffles with homemade syrup.  Hers were always the perfect texture and expertly cooked — so good!  She also always made homemade syrup that was hot off the stove.  The wheat germ is key.  It’s not always easy to find, but a Whole Foods type place will have it.
