Pandan Waffles

January 6, 2017

Author Notes: When I was a kid, my family would go to an Asian mall in the suburbs to buy pandan waffles. The green treats were served warm, soggy, and fragrant in crumpled brown paper bags. They were sweet, bready, and delicious. We stopped going there years ago, and I'm still not entirely sure what pandan is, but we've found a way to make them at home. I suggest letting the waffles get a little soggy, but if that really doesn't speak to you, these still taste fine crispy, but it's not the same experience.
