Hey guys! So I just made this delicious breakfast treat (at dinnertime) for my boyfriend’s birthday. He, along with the rest of my family absolutely loved it! The recipe was my Grammy’s, and my Mom had never tried it before. I used a basic waffle recipe that I found online (which made deliciously fluffy waffles) and paired it with my Grammy’s Fruit Syrup topped with a delicious homemade whipped cream for a fabulous breakfast dish! The syrup is made up of apple juice, apples, blueberries, and strawberries that all come together for a wonderfully fruity Spring treat. Enjoy!
