Pistachio pudding has been a household favorite around here for years, so of course we tossed some into our waffles. Our only question was what to top them with. A little brainstorming, and we came up with a very easy orange syrup. Is it the fanciest orange syrup around? No, but it did the trick on a moment’s notice. Ingredients are: orange juice, powdered sugar, corn starch. Heat it all up and drizzle it on your pistachio pudding waffles. Tada!
It starts with an ordinary waffle recipe and ends with a soft, sweet waffle. Our kids were skeptical at first, but once they tried, it they kept asking for more. When that happens, we know we’ve got a winner.
