Giddo'S Dream Waffles Recipe @pinch

Honestly, these waffles are different than any waffles we've made before. We thought the champagne would make them different, which it did, but the creme fraiche is what really makes these waffles stand out. It's similar to using buttermilk to make waffles but gives them a bit more tang. That is a nice contrast when you drizzle syrup. The batter is thick, but the waffles are light and airy inside while very crisp outside. A delicious breakfast for a special occasion. Several months ago, I awoke from an extremely vivid dream. Giddo, my grandfather who passed away when I was six years old, was standing right in front of me, statuesque as ever. His eyes sparkled with his smile and with his huge calloused hands he gave me a tattered and folded piece of paper. The entire exchange lasted but seconds and, turning around, he walked away into the garden. I opened the paper and saw this recipe for waffles. I woke up immediately, still remembering the entire dream, and wrote down the recipe.
