For my family, Waffles-with-Waffle-Sauce is the only way to eat waffles. We eat this sauce on pancakes, german pancakes, waffles and french toast. I’ve never served this to someone who hasn’t loved
it. Waffle Sauce has the ability to make an ordinary meal extra special.
In 1938, my grandmother moved to the Canal Zone in Panama as a newlywed. While there, one of my grandfather’s Navy friends came to a waffle dinner at their house. He offered to make his mother’s “waffle sauce” to serve with their waffles that night. Ever since then, my family has been making this waffle sauce to serve with pancakes and waffles.
It had been a while since I made it and my kids were thrilled when they saw the white sauce waiting on the
stove this morning.
