Reviews for Waffles
These waffles came out perfect. I followed the recipe exactly. Had them with whip cream and fresh raspberries. Yum!
I made the waffles with half whole wheat flour and half white flour, and substituted some water for the milk and some shortening for part of the butter. It was only because I ran out of milk and butter/margarine. I loved them. My friend Sam Coleman said they were decent, but he's overly critical.
My first waffles from scratch and my picky husband thought these were amazing! Light and fluffy with a great flavor. I also made the homemade vanilla maple syrup and i will keep this one to make again and again.
easy quick and versitile
Awesome waffles love e'm. Nice and fluffy and great with natural maple surup
My family didn't like this at all. I made the batter exactly as written and it was extremely runny. I added more flour and the waffles were crisp but tasted a bit like pretzels. I added more sugar and vanilla but they still didn't taste like waffles should. I will not be making this recipe again.
This recipe is great as it is written. Lends it's self to add ins like blueberries, chocolate chip...ect. A keeper
thank you for sharing
Great waffles, the family ate them all up and asked for more. This recipes makes a lot of waffles! The first time I made them, I had leftovers, so I cut in half the next time. Added some sliced frozen strawberries (which I thawed of course) and 1 Tbsp. of strawberry preserves. YUMMY!
excellent! I added 1/2 tsp of vanilla, and used melted butter instead of oil. This is a keeper recipe! Really. really good and easy :-)
These turned out pretty good for me last night. I did switch buttermilk for regular milk, but the measurements were spot on for 6 good size waffles. I threw the leftovers in the freezer for another day. I did take a picture of these, but my camera settings are not compatible with AllRecipes, so, unfortunately, I can't post it. But all-in-all this is a really good recipe. Thanks for sharing it.
Delicious recipe. And very easy. Batter keeps well in fridge sealed.
This would get 5 stars but it did need just a little tweaking IMHO...I added 1 tsp cinnamon, I beat egg whites separately and folded in last, doubled sugar to 2 Tb (could use 3 next time), used a little less oil (will try melted butter next time for flavor), and had to add a little milk to make it flow over the waffle iron. I decided to try half whole wheat flour and was pleased with the result. These waffles cooked MUCh faster than most other recipes I have used: they were done in 3 minutes max even on a medium setting. Very light and crisp on the outside, they were not at all chewy or dense. In fact, they were probably the lightest in texture I have ever made. We enjoyed them with butter and real maple syrup this morning. Yum!
since this was my first time making waffles i was very excited to try a recipe...and this was it...they turned out so lite and fluffy and dh thought they were 'fab'...so will make them again i am sure...thanks for the recipe...
Really good. I would like to add more vanilla next time to add some more flavor. Would be a really base for other flavors and adding thing like chocolate chips and coconut.
Loved these waffles. I also loved that they were easy to make and I had all the ingredients on hand. I did add a full teaspoon of vanilla and a little extra sugar. Topped them with blueberries and cream delicious!
So easy my hubby mixed up a batch and the kids ate seconds! My kind of recipe! Thanks!
Dense and rubbery. First time using my waffle maker, so I have nothing to compare it to, but these are nothing like restaurant waffles, or even frozen waffles. I cooked them for at least 10 minutes, and they never crisped up. Next time I'll try Bisquick.
Best waffle recipe I've tried yet! I did separate the eggs as recommended in a few other reviews. I used 1tbsp white sugar and 1tbsp brown sugar (and they still weren't that sweet). I also added a pinch of nutmeg and a sprinkle of cinnamon. These were delicious! Light and airy, most of recipes I've tried have been dense and heavy. This one's a keeper!
Worst waffle recipe of all time. I followed the recipe exactly! I even checked it and rechecked it a dozen times to see where I messed up but couldnt find anything. I used a measuring cup too. The batter was far too liquidyt and runny. The waffles came out shrunken and rubbery. I was so mad. Im never trying this recipe again.
Followed recipe except added 1 tsp vanilla. Recipe was just okay-nothing too exciting. Definitely works for a recipe to come back to if I want something quick and easy, but I will continue the search for the perfect, most delicious waffle:)
I read a lot of the reviews saying how bland the waffles were but overall good. Here is what I did differently: 1) Seperated the eggs and beat the whites until they formed soft peaks. 2) Replaced regular milk with buttermilk, and infused the milk with a split vanilla bean for 10 minutes... Strained vanilla bean and seeds 3) Replaced the vanilla extract with 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste (hard to find, but some specialty food stores carry it) 4) Add a tablespoon of Best Foods mayo for extra fluffiness! (I know it sounds weird but it's an old trick!) 5) Fold in egg whites last! With the egg whites, fold in a GOOD drizzle of pure maple syrup. I topped the waffles with fried chicken, warm maple syrup and powdered sugar! (My husband wanted to try wings and waffles after seeing it on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives!) Next time I will make them for breakfast and add some blueberries and slivered almonds! *** For the holidays, you can make these with pumpkin puree and cut down on the milk and add sweetened condensed milk (infused with a cinnamon stick and vanilla bean), nutmeg, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice***
Really good recipe! They came out crispy and light, loved them! Thanks for sharing.
I make this recipe almost every weekend. I prep about a dozen waffles and put them in the fridge. Then I grab 2-3 on the way out the door and heat them up for 45-60 seconds in the microwave for a fast and delicious breakfast. I love this recipe because it's so versatile. I regularly add fruit and mini chocolate chips. Favorite additions include 2 mashed bananas + mini semisweet chocolate chips OR half a can of pumpkin puree and a couple spoonfuls of brown sugar. So easy!!
YUMM!! These waffles are great. Fluffy on the inside - crispy on the outside. I did make some changes as others suggested: Doubled the sugar, I also seperated the eggs, wisked till fluffy and folded them in when the batter was done. I also used butter instead of oil.
Very good, we won't be buying the box stuff anymore. My husband did add more vanilla though.
This recipe came out very plain - try the oatmeal waffles or one of the other recipes out there- I had to add some brown sugar, cinnamon and vanilla to get these to even taste decent.
Not sure what went wrong here, but these were absolutely the worst waffles I've ever made. They were soggy, leaden, and had a terrible aftertaste (even with the cinnamon added). I didn't use 90% of the batter because they simply wouldn't cook properly. Only modification I made was to substitute 1/4 cup of white flour with whole wheat flour--the recipe even states whole wheat will work in it, so I can't imagine that that's what made it bomb.
This was a great waffle recipe. I even added a little wheat germ and they came out terrific, very crispy yet light on the inside.
This recipe was a bust. The waffles got overly dark but were limp and had a strong taste of baking soda. Not what I prefer in a waffle at all. The only upside is that they held their shape well.....
A great basic waffle recipe. You can't go wrong. A nice recipe to have on hand when you want the "original" instead of something over the top. Just make sure you don't overbeat, or you will likely end up with flat, dense waffles.
These turned out so yummy! I doubled the sugar and vanilla as many suggested and they were really good! I love this recipe because it doesn't use buttermilk which I never have on hand, and when I buy it specifically for waffles I can only find it in the 1L containers and end up wasting most of the container because I do not use buttermilk for anything else. Now I will probably make waffles more often since I always have all of these ingredients in the house. I topped half of my waffle with real maple syrup and the other half with real whipped cream and some fresh strawberries, yum! I reheated one in the toaster at work the next day and it squished a little but turned out crispy and yummy! Thanks for the great recipe!
I definitely reccommend having your waffle iron on one of the higher settings... As a twist, I sliced a banana in half the long way, then in half again and fried it both sides in a bit of butter before chopping it and putting it between two layers of waffles and topping with maple syrup. DELISH!
My family was giving me a lot of grief about always being forced to eat healthy waffles so I decided to make these for them as a treat. These waffles were very dense and bland and not even the toddlers liked them. I added pecans but kept everything else the same. The whole house agreed that the whole grain waffles on this site were a hundred times better.
I just bought a mini waffle maker and have been eager to try out a few waffle recipes. Within a span of 3 days I have tried two waffle recipes on this site. This one, and the Classic Waffles Recipe. Both my husband and I agreed that we much prefer the Classic Waffles Recipe. They came out perfect, crispy on the outside, and light and fluffy on the inside. On the other hand, this recipe, Waffles I, came out slightly soggy. I think it might have to do with the dry to wet ingredients ratio. The Classic Waffles Recipe calls for slightly less milk and oil/butter. They just worked out so much better for us. And,it might really just have to do with what brand waffle maker you have. I would try out both and see which one works out best for you!
The best homemade waffles I have ever had, they were super fluffy, very easy to make, and the whole family + friends loved them. I, as I've always done, put in chocolate chips in one batch, and blueberries in another, right into the batter before I cooked them. I recommend this recipe 150%.
Almost as easy as opening up a box of waffle mix, and much better tasting! I didn't bother to separate the eggs, and still found these to be very light. I used half whole wheat flour and doubled the vanilla and sugar...the kids and I really enjoyed these.
Fantastic waffle recipe. They turned out perfectly and I got 6 and a half waffles using my belgian waffle maker. I followed the recipe exactly and didn't have any problems. I didn't even need nonstick spray to keep them from sticking to the waffle maker. Definitely a keeper for me.
Great recipe. Like others, I separated the eggs and folded the whites into the batter. That is the key to very fluffy and light waffles. I am making a double-batch right now to freeze so we can eat them on the go during the week. To freeze: cool waffles completely on a wire rack, then layer on a cookie sheet and freeze a few hours until solid before wrapping in a freezer bag.
Husband and kids (ages 6 and 3) LOVED this recipe... I used the whole wheat flour, added a tablespoon of wheat germ, doubled the vanilla, and added a dash of cinnamon. They really are very filling and the only thing I will do differently next time is add a bit more sugar (probably the wheat germ that made it need just a little more sweetness). Overall a very tasty waffle.
Very good, basic waffle recipe! Came out golden brown and very fluffy. I will definitely make again but will add some cinnamon/nutmeg. For the other reviewers who said that theirs turned out with an overwhelming baking soda taste.... There is NO baking SODA in this recipe. The recipe calls for baking POWDER. That could be half the problem you're having. LOL!
Tried it in the blender, doubled sugar and vanilla amounts....not great. Pretty dense. Will try whisking eggs separately next time.
These are very good tasting waffles, nice not to crunchy exterior with a fluffy middle.I would add just a little more sugar, maybe another tablespoon. But great recipe! Best waffle ive had.
Comes out perfect every time! TIP: add lemon zest to the batter to take these to the next level!!!
I used whole wheat flour for a healthier twist. Very good receipe.
Excellent! I make them every weekend and everyone loves them, family and guests alike. I use half whole wheat flour, half oil/half apple sauce and 1.5 tsp vanilla. Once the batter is done and the iron is heating, I cut up apples into very small pieces and add them in. Add pecans on top of each waffle in the iron and you have delicious apple/pecan waffles!
Yum! My first attempt at waffles. Made slight modifications: 1/4 cup of veg oil instead of 1/2, agave instead of white sugar, almond milk instead of milk, 1 tsp of vanilla instead of 1/2. I also added in sliced strawberries.
My first time making waffles and a definite success. I made I few changes: doubled the sugar and vanilla. I also used 1 cup of eggnog (wanted to use it up) and 3/4 cup of skim milk. This will be my go to recipe for waffles, no need to look further. Great recipe.
I did as other reviewers said and beat the egg whites separately. I added 1/4 cup sugar and some cinnamon. Also, used 1 1/4 cup ap flour, 1/2 cup whole wheat and 1/4 cup oat bran. Delicious!
This was great, the kiddos loved them.
I have no idea why this recipe has so many good reviews. I followed recipe exactly and it was super liquidy. So I added more flour so I could actually cook it (almost a whole extra cup), and they had an awful bland taste.
I haven't actually tried this recipe. I accidentally clicked on this to rate it thinking it was another recipe.
waffles were fairly easy to make and looked great when they were done. i thought it lacked something though. maybe i'll increase the sugar and vanilla like some others suggested and add half a cup of butter next time. thanks!
This was a good recipe. i followed recipe as written, except i did add some fresh blueberries to half the batter. I also cooked them in a belgim waffle maker as that is all i have. they were nice and fluffy,and had great flavor.
amazing! i just got back from doing black friday shopping and wanted to try out my new waffle maker, but i was so tired i needed a simple recipe. i found this one and it was soooo good. i added 1/4 of sugar and like 2 tsp of vanilla, we like things sweet. i will deffinatly be making these again, and soon
I used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 1 cup all purpose flour and they turned out nicely. I will use this recipe again.
Fantastic waffles! They puff up nicely and taste great.
This recipe rocks!!! I will never buy frozen waffles again...my 6 y/o grandson will only eat the frozen kind and he had three of these. I made as written..very good!!
I have been trying all different waffle recipes, this is ,by far, the most delicious one I have ever had! Very flavorful and crisp on the outside, moist on the inside!
I read some reviews beforehand and doubled both the sugar and vanilla and added a dash of cinnamon...yummy, yummy. My kids just gobble them up and they are so healthy with whole wheat flour!
Yummy! Very easy and tasty! I tried this recipe at random and followed the advice of other reviews. I doubled the sugar and vanilla...perfecto! Loved it!
I went against my better instincts and followed this recipe as written. It got such high praise. But this tasted too strongly of baking powder.. Halve the Baking powder and add a tablespoon of lemon juice. The acid in the juice will react with the powder and creates the same effect.
Very good. Freeze well too. I beat the flour into the eggs slowly to keep the lumps out and it made a very light and airy waffle. The family loved them.
Wonderful fluffy waffles that come out crisp. I recommend beating the egg whites separately and fold them in after all ingredients are combined.
Very good with some added cinnamon, brown sugar, and walnuts. Served with bananas :)
This is a good recipe, but a little on the unhealthy side. To kick up the fiber, I split the flour for 1 cup white/1 cup whole wheat and added 1/4 cup ground flaxseed. Becuase the flavor of the waffles is so bland, I increased the flavor by using 4 tablespoons of Splenda to sweeten and 1 tsp vanilla. Even using ht basic recipe, the batter is a bit thick and leands to a dense waffle, so to lighten the batter, I added an additional 1/2 cup milk. NOt only did the husband gobble up his waffle, but the kids enjoyed them as well. Additionally, it is better to mix all the dry ingredients first so that you have a consistent batter and then after mixing in your wet ingredients, let your batter rest to let it fully rise.
This is one of my easy go to waffle recipes. I beat the eggs till fluffy in one bowl and mix the other ingredients in another bowl, then add the eggs to the batter. I also leave them in the waffle iron till they get brown and crisp... they will still be soft and delicious inside.
Easy, reliable recipe. In lieu of the oil, I use either applesauce or a combination of applesauce and coconut oil. I also add 1 tsp vanilla as well as a couple drops of almond extract and a few shakes of cinnamon. I yield about 6 waffles from this recipe, which is just right for our family. Whatever toppings you choose, this waffle makes a perfect foundation.
This always comes out perfectly. I add more vanilla than the recipe calls for though.
works great with my cast iron waffle maker!
These are terrific!!! I used to use a different waffle recipe on this site, but I tried this one and am glad I did! This will become our family waffles.....a little changes I made....beat the egg whites and fold them in at the end. Also used half applesauce and half oil to make them a little healthier. NUMMY!!!!
We love it
I tried these waffles this morning and they were divine! The very best waffles I have ever had.
These waffles are great! I don't believe in changing a recipe, then reviewing it...it's a lie that way! I made them according to the recipe and they are very good! I will make again! Thanks for the recipe!
Yum! I followed the directions except using about 1/4 cup mashed banana and 1/4 cup oil instead of the full 1/2 cup. It was healthier, delicious, still crispy, and had just a hint of banana flavor.
Great flavor and texture. I had never cooked waffles before, this was a great recipe to get me started. I used milk as I did not have buttermilk.
Delicious - cooked flat like pancakes (no waffle iron - used a sandwich press instead.) Tasted good because took others advice to separate yolks from whites & fold whites in at the end. Lovely light texture & great taste!
YUUUUUUUUMMMMMM! If you like sweeter waffles, add little bit of sugar. I think they are perfect! Crispy outside, super fluffy inside!
I used this recipe to christen my new waffle baker. As suggested by other reviewers, I doubled the sugar and vanilla. If I try this recipe again, I won't increase the vanilla because I think it adversely affected the flavor and texture (probably because I only had the cheap stuff). Also, I would let the batter rest for a while to help in rising -- if not, I would at least beat the egg whites and fold them in last.
I have made these waffles several times now. They are amazing! My kids love them. I will never use a package mix again. I have made strawberry syrup and peach syrup to go with them, but the best is the homemade syrup I found on this site. Together they are like heaven.
These are the best waffles I have ever eaten. I took the advise of others and used a extra sugar and vanilla and I added a little cinamon and they are so good you don't even need to put butter and syrup on them I ate my waffle plain!!! Very good recipe you wont be disapointed with it!!!!
These waffles came out very light and fluffy. A 1/4 cup of batter did it for my waffle maker. However, I did make a few changes, I added 2 tbsp. sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1/2 cup chocolate chips. I was surprised that this batter gave me so much waffles (14),so I frooze them. Thanks for sharing Ultra B.
Just ok. I ended up throwing some chocolate chips in after the first few threw the waffle maker jst because we found them fairly bland. Maybe more vanilla and sugar be better.
Tried this recipe because of the reviews and it was great! The only substitutions I used were whole wheat pastry flour, doubled the vanilla and sugar (also subbed for brown sugar) per suggestions and added in a pinch of cinnamon and cardamom. The perfect amount of sweetness for eating a waffle by itself. The only tiny issue I have, it's mainly a personal preference, was that the waffles were a tad greasy with the amount of oil, so next time I will try it with a healthier alternative besides just oil (applesauce or yogurt). I didn't have enough time to beat the eggs until fluffy like the recipe states since my beaters were dirty but hand whisking it slightly was all I was able to do. The waffle is fluffy, light and crisps up nicely. Oh, I highly suggest you let these cool on a wire rack, otherwise, they will stay soggy. Letting them cool on the rack lets the outside crisp up nicely. This made 9 waffles for me, using 1/2c measurement and a regular circular waffle iron. The batter is thin when you make it but just pour the batter in a circular motion and you'll have an even batter waffle! Great recipe, thanks!
Great and very easy recipe! I topped off the waffles with coconut syrup, fresh pineapple, bananas, and toasted macadamia nuts. It tasted just like the waffle me and my husband enjoyed on our honeymoon in Hawaii.
Good recipe The dog cleared the counter of a double recipe.I did manage to get one though before The Great Dane counter surfed while I stepped out of the room. Personally a bit more vanilla and maybe a bit of acid like lemon juice to add to the milk or buttermilk? Wish I had read some of the hints prior and left the dog on the porch! LOL
Ok so after making them the way the recipe was written and then after being disappointed and then reading a lot of reviews I changed a few things and these came out perfect! I used 1/2 cup butter instead of vegetable oil, I think this made them less soggy and more crunchy! I doubled the sugar and the vanilla. I lowered the baking powder down to 2 1/2 teaspoons and a sprinkle of nutmeg and 1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon, you could add less cinnamon, but my kids loooved the cinnamon flavor! *** I was at my brother's house and he's vegan so he was out of milk. I used almond milk instead of regular milk and wow, they turned out fantastic.. I think I will use almond milk from now on, they seemed to turn out more crunchy, I also added a half teaspoon of baking power up to 3 teaspoons.
Made several times. Used buttermilk instead of milk. After they have been cooked I freeze the ones we didn't eat for later.
Very good! I had some buttermilk I wanted to use up, so I used that instead of regular, I also cut the baking powder in half and doubled the sugar and vanilla. They were very good. Next time I may increase the sugar and vanilla even more, 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and 3 tablespoons of sugar. I think that would make them just perfect! Oh, almost forgot. I made a batch with chocolate chips and they were incredible as well! 9/22, I made again only a lower cal version, applesause instead of oil, skim milk, egg beaters. Blah! No flavor at all what so ever. So my kids would eat them I put a ton of butter, syrup, and powdered sugar on them to try and hide the flavorless mess I made. I luv these waffles, and I'll make again, just not the low cal way.
I made this for my mom and brother for dinner. It was really easy to make and was done within 30 minutes. Served with some grits and scrambled eggs, it was a delicious 30 minute dinner. I really loved that it didn't have the hassle of yeast. The waffles were fluffy and and cooked pretty quickly. I made them with a Waring Pro waffle maker and they were great! Thanks!
The first time I made this, my husband thought the batter was too thin for waffles. So, the next time, I made them as pancakes. We add chocolate chips to it and it is a light and sweet pancake.
We make these every Sun Morning!!!
These were good. But lacking the flavor of a buttermilk waffle.
I normally don't eat waffles without a lot of syrup, but these waffles were perfect without any additional condiments. Loved the recipe, and so did everyone else in the house.
I love this recipe, it doesn't call for butter. The whole family loves these waffles and we eat them on Saturdays.
These were delicious. We really enjoyed.
easy, quick, totally uncomplicated... used white wheat flour and it still turned out pretty tasty, thanks
