BUTTERMILK WAFFLES WITH GRILLED FRUIT - To Die For

This recipe was found in a catalog next to a promoted waffle maker. It sounded so good I had to try it out. While caring for my mother during the final years of her life these waffles were one of her favorite breakfast requests. I altered this recipe into also making 2-3 pancakes as this recipe makes 8 4-1/2 inch waffles: pancakes will be listed at the bottom of this waffle recipe.
