Buttermilk Waffles with Orange-Butter Sauce


The sauce is so easy and so yummy, no additional butter or syrup is needed. You can top with chopped pecans for a nice variation.

1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
2 tablespoons light brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Orange Butter Sauce
3/4 cup brown sugar
