cinnamon and sugar

the husband knows the best way to my heart is through my stomach.

that is why tonight he made my always favorite - breakfast for dinner. i feel like a good waffle iron should be mandatory in any true chef's kitchen. this particular one makes humongous 4-piece waffles (the size of a dinner plate), and of course, we each eat one. not my best practicing of moderation, but i just can't help myself. 

this homemade syrup topped with fresh fruit, really brought the meal home. melt-in-your-mouth kind of good. 

simple and delicious, homemade waffles
1 3/4 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 3/4 cup milk
1/2 vegetable oil

mix together and bake in a waffle iron

cinnamon and brown sugar syrup
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup corn syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup water

in a small saucepan, combine sugar and cinnamon. add butter, water and corn syrup and stir over medium low heat until sugar dissolves and mixture thickens. serve hot.
