These were very good waffles. I added vanilla and cinnamon and I changed up the leavening to 1 tsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp baking soda per cup of flour and omitted the salt. I made a double batch as I was feeding 3 boys and they gobbled them up! Read More

It was just ok. Quite bland tasting and I added some vanilla in hopes of some taste. Won't make again. Read More

These are great basic buttermilk waffles. If you want crisp I recommend Belgium waffles which have you beating the whites separately. Buttermilk waffles are faster to prep and offer a more tender consistency. I made these with whole wheat and doubled the recipe with no issues. Read More

Made as is with no substitutions. Easy and quick recipe that makes nicely crisp waffles if you leave them a little bit longer in the waffle iron to brown. Thanks for the recipe. My mornings are busy. This works great! Read More

We prefer a crispy waffle so the texture was off for us; it is still a good basic waffle. This was lovely topped with a warm fruit compote. Read More

Quick and easy. No complicated steps. I substituted 1/4 cup of applesauce for the eggs and sugar because we were out of eggs. It worked great. Read More

LOVELY! Mine turned out soooooo good and flaky on the surface soft in the middle fluffy... I could go on and on but you've got to try this recipe for yourself. P.s. They were just as good without syrup. Read More
