I've tried other waffle recipes, and this is one is by far the best! The texture is moist, not dry - and they freeze well. Cool on wire racks before freezing, then just pop them in the toaster to reheat.

WOW! Yummy! The BEST waffles we have ever had. I must admit that I put all the ingredients in one big bowl and mixed by hand. No fancy hoopla like the recipe says and I threw out the egg whites. Oops. BUT they were still awesome. It took me about 1 minute to prepare the batter. That's right! And we still loved them. We sliced fresh strawberries mixed with sugar and topped with Cool whip. FANTASTICO!

Don't waste your time. I have no idea why this recipe has received so many good reviews. I have been making home made waffles for quite some time now and thought I'd try something new so gave this a shot. My husband and I both couldn't finish just one waffle. Pass on this and and keep searching. I will edity soon with a better receipe that we usually use from this site.

This recipe was great. Although I got tired of having to separate egg yokes and what-not..I just mixed it all up in the mixer and it turned out fine!

I loved the texture of these. Crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. The only problem was that they had no flavor. All I could taste was the maple syrup I put on. This would be a perfect recipe to add blueberries to.

These waffles were absolutely wonderful. Beating the egg whites is important as it incorporates air and makes them light. I always add a bit of vanilla to my waffles and pancakes also. Sometimes cinnamon. (I can't believe a reviewer would give this wonderful recipe 3 stars because it's too much work at 5am. DUH! Stick to cold cereal or toast then!!)

Is it legal to sell these? These waffles were the best waffles ever! I made double the recipe and gave them away for presents! I am speechless! The name really is true! Only one thing though. I found they weren't that sweet. I Put 1/4 more sugar and put a little bit of chocolate chips and they were even better!

Definitely a perfect recipe for "Wonderful Waffles"! These were light fluffy crispy on the outside and tender on the inside - what more could you as for on a Sunday morning. I've made waffles before just adding the egg whole vs. separating and whipping the egg whites until nice and fluffy. I must say it's worth the extra step of whipping the egg whites and folding them in - the result was a much fluffier waffle. I melted the butter and used 6 Tbsp. of white sugar vs. brown and added a generous splash of vanilla. These are delicious topped with butter real maple syrup or fresh fruit and whipped cream! Thanks for a great recipe!

Definately not the quickest waffle recipe but well worth it! I typically make waffles enmass to freeze for kids breakfast...before I could bag them my daughter grabbed one and said 'These are really good mom!' Texture reminds me of the inards of a popover.

The Best!!!! My family loved them and they are a very tough crowd. It was easy to make. I followed earlier advice about putting all the ingredients in one bowl and mixing. I made them early and warmed them in the oven and they were perfect. I will make a double batch next time so I can freeze some for breakfast on school days.
