Stir just until mixed Don't beat, add vanill and butter,stir to incorporate.
Cook in a HOT greased waffle iron, do desired crispness. Serve with your favorite fruit syrup!

Here's how I make ours:
Works for elderberry, blackberry, peach, strawberry......
I use Sure-Jell and inside pkg. I use the cooked jelly recipe procedure.  Elderberries won't be offered so I use "Currant" directions instead. Prepare the fruit as instructed with 2 cups water instead of 1 1/2 . When measuring juice into pot (after straining) add 1/2 cup lemon juice. Now reduce the sugar to 3 cups and proceed with procedure. This will make a syrup instead of jelly. I also do this with other fruits, when there is an abundance, to have syrup in the winter for pancakes. We especially like wild plum and they don't produce enough very often.
