My friend Christiane is the breakfast Queen. First, it was Pfannenkuchen. Now it is Swedish Waffles. She shared this recipe with me on a scrap of paper, written by hand. I made them for brunch today. They are rich and buttery with a flaky interior and crisp exterior. If you don't make them for breakfast, they would make a fantastic base for a strawberry shortcake or as a garnish with an ice cream sundae.
