Some years ago at an antique sale in Edmonton, my mother found a sadly neglected stove-top castiron waffle iron "Taylor Forbes Ltd. Guelph Canada" c.1920s. She must have spent hours scrubbing off the rust and grime with steel wool and elbow grease before seasoning it well and giving it to us for Christmas. Not only is it an extremely attractive conversation piece, but it makes the best waffles. Thank you again and again, Mom! (see more images of our Taylor Forbes cast iron waffle iron)
Procedure: 1.) batter should be consistency of porridge; 2.) pour batter on preheated wellseasoned iron; 3.) use other side of iron to flatten batter; 4.) waffle turned and almost done on other side; 5.) waffle ready for plate.

If you don't have a waffle iron, add a little more milk to make pancakes on a cast iron griddle
