You will need a waffle iron to make these as authentically as possible, and you can pick these up very cheaply from most department stores. 

Quick and Easy Waffles Recipe


Here is my favourite waffle recipe, it’s quick and easy – from an American cookbook that I picked up while I lived in Canada.
