The multigrain flour mix gives these waffles their complex flavor, tender texture, and nice chewy bite. Two cups of cream make the batter particularly delicate and keep the waffles moist even after they cool. Cook the waffles until they are dark golden-brown, so that the crust has a thin, crisp texture that offsets the fine crumb of the center. Serve these waffles with the best maple syrup you can find and a knob of good butter. For an extraspecial treat, try Blis maple syrup; it’s aged in bourbon barrels for a rich, round flavor that is incredible (see Sources).
