We all enjoyed these for breakfast with sliced strawberries and whipped cream. The only thing I do differently is make waffles in the blender. First I whip up the egg in the blender then add the rest of the wet ingredients and blend quickly. Then add the mixed dry ingredients to the blender and use the stir cycle until well mixed. Then I pour it directly onto the waffle iron. I add extra milk to thin out the batter if it needs it. Easy! and a nice treat. Enjoy. Read More

What went wrong?!? I made these waffles exactly as the recipe said and they were limp and soggy, even after laying them out on a paper towel, and they tasted heavily of salt and baking soda. I was very disappointed because all the reviews made them sound wonderful. Conspiracy Theory: I've gone through the reviews for this recipe and the "too much baking soda" complaint is restricted to the last three reviews. I wonder if someone hacked into the recipe database and changed the amount of baking soda in the recipe so that poor, unsuspecting cooks would have their waffles ruined. Breakfast-related mayhem ensues and the evil hacker goes on to mess up other recipes. Think about it. Read More

My family liked this recipes I did make some alterations to the mix, I add 5 Tbls of sugar and 1 1/4 stick of real butter (melted) and about 3 Tbls of vanilla I know from past mistakes when cooking other recipes the bread didn't come out to sweet. This is a nice sweet I know it sounds like alot of sugar but it all balances out. I will definately use this recipe again! Read More

The only thing I did different than the directions stated to do was I sifted the flour, baking power & sugar before I added the liquid ingredients. If we could my husband and I would give this a 10 star rating. Also remember to put the hot waffle on paper towels because otherwise they do get steamy/soggy without. Thank you for the wonderful recipe.. no more mixes for us!! YUMMO (just like Rachel Ray says) ;-) Read More

Glad to find this recipe as it is close to my mother's recipe that I lost. I separated the eggs and folded in the whites last. This is the way my mom's recipe was and it makes the waffles lighter. Read More

I've made this recipe twice now. Now never even eating anything but Eggos and hubby buying me a waffle maker for Christmas, the first time I made this recipe I following the directions exactly and they were good but they weren't "OMG these are amazing!" ... Which is why I gave this 4 stars.. Today I made this recipe again but this time I followed the suggestions in the reviews.. I used 4 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon vanilla, 1/2 cup of butter (1 stick) just b/c it's easier than have a alittle bit of butter left over to put away in the fridge, and 1 3/4 cup milk to make it just alittle easier to pour. Today's batch was amazing!!! What a difference! Now it's a 5 star recipe! And everyone wanted more! Also... another tip.. The first time I made this I shifted the flour and I beat the egg whites and yolks separately to make fluffier waffles b/c that's all you see online about how to make fluffy waffles. But it was alot of work so today I didn't do any of that and they were the same texture/fluffiness, so don't waste your time doing those extra steps. ENJOY!!! Read More

1st time cooking waffles and it came out great. I agree that separating the yolks and whites makes it better. Fantastic recipe. Read More

Having never made a waffle until now, and having never even eaten one other than an Eggo, I have no basis to compare this recipe with any other. Having said that, all I know is hubby and I enjoyed our breakfast this morning! In comparing this recipe with other similar recipes, including the one included in the manual, this one called for twice the amount of salt, so I reduced it by half keeping all other ingredients and measurements the same, and beat the eggs well to lighten them up. The waffle was crispy on the outside, but tender on the inside, with good flavor. My only criticism, and certainly no fault of the recipe, is that my waffle maker anyway, cooks unevenly, with some parts of the waffle browning more than others. Maybe it just takes practice spreading the batter? Read More

Wow! Perfect recipe for "Classic Waffles"! I got a waffle maker and couldn't wait to try it out. They were crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. This recipe is perfect as-is, but if you want a sweeter waffle you can up the sugar to as much as you like. I upped it to about 4-6 Tbsp and was liberal with the vanilla. These are delicious topped with real maple syrup or fresh fruit and whipped cream! Read More
