I've had several people contact me about making waffles in Griswold or other cast iron waffle irons. My twins love these waffles. You can also add, blueberries or grated apples (my favorite) or a small amount of vanilla (1/2 tsp.) to the recipe to add different flavors.

Waffle Recipe

2 eggs
1 3/4 cups milk
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

Heat your waffle iron.  I use a #18 Griswold Heart and Star on a low base on an electric stove.  It will be important for you to experiment with the temperature settings on your stove, as I sure did until I found the right temperature setting.  Beat eggs, add sugar, then salt.  Beat in flour with milk and then add the butter.  When the waffle iron is hot, then add the baking powder, as this will allow the baking powder to work and make fluffy waffles.  Spray the top and bottom of the iron with PAM to inhibit sticking.  Add enough batter to the center of your iron to make about 1/2 to 3/4 of it filled and then close the waffle iron.  Cook on one side for about 2 minutes, the flip the iron over for about 2 mintues.  If you waffles stick, then the iron is not hot enough or it is not seasoned enough.  Experiment, it will pay off!!
