I think this recipe is wonderful. I am a professional pastry chef and I have had a hard time finding a waffle that is versitle and can be tweeked to do what I want it to without someone screwing it up at the restaurant. I can add anything to this recipe and it still comes out wonderful. The best seller is when we add apple pie filling about 1/2 cup and 1 tbs. of cinnamon. Top with some more warm pie filling and homemade maple syrup! A++++ Read More

This is EXACTLY the recipe I was looking for when I bought my new waffle maker!!! Better than the restaurant I used to beg my hubby to take me to just so I could get a belgian waffle. I added 2tsp of vanilla 2-3 TBS. of sugar 1 tsp of cinnamon and used 3/4 c milk and 3/4 c buttermilk. YUMMMMM. Perfect each time!! Family loves them too but I'm the waffle freak! Read More

The only recipe better than this is my Grandma's and that calls for butter and buttermilk which I didn't have on hand today which is why I tried this. Very simple ingredients that produce a yummy waffle. I did add about 2-3 T sugar and about 2-3 t vanilla to sweeten it up a bit. I also added about 1 -1 1/2 cups frozen blueberries. My daughter and her friend loved them. This recipe does make more than 4 servings in my opinion. I got about 7 6 in round waffles out of it and they are very filling. Read More

FINALLY!!! A waffle recipe worth hanging onto. These were wonderful. I made as directed except used others recommendations and added 2 Tbsp. of sugar (don't like mine too sweet especially since I'm using pure maple syrup on top) 1 tsp. cinnamon and 2 tsp. vanilla. In place of the milk I used 1/2 buttermilk and 1/2 regular milk. They cooked up nice and light not thick and chewy like the waffles I usually make. I was able to get approximately 7 - 7" waffles plenty to freeze the extras. Thanks for a great recipe Karen! (BTW be sure to give your waffle maker a quick spray of oil before pouring each waffle).

I liked that this recipe omitted sugar. I'm one who usually omits sugar from waffles if I can get away with it. I followed the recipe exact. This recipe turned out a nice waffle crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside. I'd make this again but I would up the salt a little and add a touch of vanilla. Read More

I am pregnant and was craving chocolate chip waffles like you wouldn't believe. I have always been afraid to try my own waffle batter but I was out of my mix. I made with apple sauce instead of oil to make it healthier and it was still wonderful! Thanks a lot. Read More

After a recent disaster with a commercial pancake mix making waffles I was determined to find a recipe that used beaten egg whites which was an ingredient I remembered from my childhood. This recipe was easy both in preparation and ingredients. The waffles turned out great. Light & crisp. Worth the little extra effort to whip the egg whites. Read More
