< < < SNIP >>I ended up making orange-cinnamon wafers, although I guess I

have added enough flavorings (a little over 2 teaspoons total, I
think). So next time I might add a bit more. I'd also baked the first
pair of wafers before I realized I'd forgotten to add the melted
butter to the batter. Oops. I'd forgotten it in the microwave where
I'd put it to melt it). Luckily the first, butter-less wafers still
separated from the wafer iron okay. It also thinned the batter some,
which was fairly thick even after I added some milk. Next time I add
more milk to thin it out more, which will make it easier to get equal
sized wafers.  > > > > >

What did you decide to use for orange flavoring?  If juice, then you'll
probably thin out your batter a good bit getting strong flavors.  If orange
flower water and you aren't getting the orange scent and intensity you're
wanting, then I recommend using some grated orange rind (avoid the pith) to
bolster your orange flavor.  Or if you must (and OOP is okay), then some
frozen OJ concentrate could suffice in a pinch . . . those less graceful in
its flavor.
