This is a rich, soft waffle with lots of taste. The batter is thick, will spread some on its own.

I happen to be out of Crisco I substituted vegetable oil in equal amounts. For me the batter was a bit thinner than what I'm used to but the waffles were passable. We liked the flavor that the yogurt gave to these waffles. I think if I make these again I'd take Sarah May's advice and cut back on the fat called for in this recipe by half. Read More

As written this recipe is too greasy, I got a much nicer result when I subbed a little less than 1/4 cup of canola oil for the shortening. The waffles turned out very soft and fluffy. Read More

Hard to rate this since I changed it a bit per other reviews. I used 1/4 cup oil instead of 1/2 cup shortening. I also added 1tsp of vanilla for more flavor. I whipped the eggs before adding everything else. These were the lightest, fluffy waffels i've ever made and we loved them! Read More

I thought the flavor was fine but I don't think all the fat is necessary. I prefer waffles that are light and moist on the inside and lightly crispy on the outside. Read More

Yum! I had some extra yogurt that was about to go bad so I decided to give this a try (I did not have high expectations). I was surprised at how delicious this was! I used plain yogurt, and 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1/4 all purpose, and about HALF the shortening. This is my new favorite waffle recipe, thanks for sharing! Read More

Love how easy and simple these were to make. I took the advise of reviewer Sarah-May and subbed out the shortening and replaced with a 1/4 C of oil. It was perfect they were light fluffy and not at all greasy. Read More

Great recipe, except I substituted 1/2 cup melted butter for the shortening, and added an extra 1/2 cup chia seed gel for fiber. Also for variations, you can add toasted sunflower seeds, chopped cooked ham, sambal oelek (flavored mild chilli paste) and grated cheese. I also made other waffles with spinach, chopped cook ham, feta cheese and cracked pepper. Read More
