Combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients and whisk to combine. Let sit for about 5 minutes, until waffle iron is hot.
Depending on your waffle iron, pour in 1/4-1/3 cup waffle batter. Cook according to waffle iron directions.
Top with Butter syrup and fresh fruit. Enjoy!
Combine butter, sugar, half & half and honey in a medium sized saucepan. (Syrup will bubble up later on!) Whisk to combine while heating. Bring to a low boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat & add vanilla. Add baking soda in slowly. Let cool to thicken. Serve drizzled on waffles.
* Buttermilk in waffles creates a richer flavor, but the waffles are a bit softer. To get a crisper waffle, use regular milk.
