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.

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!
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!
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!
This may not be the easiest waffle recipe I've ever made, but it is certainly the tastiest. YUMMY!
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.
Very good recipe. I had buttermilk I wanted to get rid of, and it made the most delicious waffles!! I cooked them in the waffle iron for 3 minutes and they were perfect.
If you only have one mixer: get out two big bowls and a little bowl. Start by separating the eggs and whipping the whites in one of the big bowls. (set that aside) In the little bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt with the mixer. In the other big bowl, whip the brown sugar and the egg yolks, then whip in the softened butter. Pour the buttermilk into that mixture and keep mixing until it's all creamy. Put away the mixer! Use a spatula to combine the flour and buttermilk mixture. Then mix in a quarter of the whipped egg whites with that spatula. The last of the whipped egg whites will then easily and gently fold in with your spatula. You are going to love these waffles!
These were good. I followed the recipe exactly. It was alot of prep for ok waffles. Mine did not get crisy on the outsides.
My Families favorite breakfast. I no longer follow all of the measurements or use the egg whites. I believe the waffles taste better throwing the ingredients together.
We are whole wheat flour eaters so I substituted the white flour for the whole wheat. Turned out fantastic. Also I added some vanilla. I did not have any buttermilk so I made my own. It is one cup of milk + 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. I hope this helps!
Its not really my favourite recipe since it uses butter in the batter, but it did turn out very light - cruncy on the outside but fluffy on the inside! I actually only used a wee bit of baking soda and no baking power.
When I whipped the egg whites, I used my Kitchen Aid mixer. I chilled the mixer bowl and the whipping attachment for thirty minutes before attempting to whip the egg whites. Once I got those egg whites done, this recipe was cake. The outside of the waffle was crispy and the inside of the waffle was fluffy and soft. One of the best waffles I've ever made. The whole family loved them.
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.
I followed previous suggestions of mixing everything together at once. The waffles turned out perfect!
These are pretty good. Loved the texture of the waffles. However I tasted the first one and it was kind of bland. Slightly sweet but just not quite right. So I added 1 1/2 tsp vanilla to the batter. Perfect :) Thanks for the recipe.
SUCH a step up from my ten year old sister's 'oops i put too much baking soda in again and just eat around the lumps' waffles. Although I love her, this is the recipe we'll be using from here on out. I used half white and half wheat flour. It worked like a charm, and I took everyone's advice and just mixed it all together in a bowl. I love the way the brown sugar tastes too.
Wow these are good! Time consuming but worth the time. The second time I made these I was more organized so it went a bit faster. I highly suggest these for a brunch when you have company over! My only change was to add some cinnamon - GREAT RECIPE!
Fantastic recipe and well worth the time spent!! Waffles were crisp on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside. The only changes I made to the recipe were to replace butter and buttermilk with buttery spread and rice milk/vinegar mixture to make it dairy free. This is definitely a keeper!
These waffles were delicious!!! I added a tsp of French Vanilla extract and a tsp of orange zest to them. They were better than IHOPs!!! They came out nice and fluffy and the batter was a perfect consistency!! I am going to make these every weekend!
I did not separate the eggs as directed and instead I beat them well and added wet and then dry ingredients and they turned out terrific. Great breakfast by the pool! Thanks for sharing!
These were wonderful. No harder than any other waffle recipe. These were light and fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside. I loved the use of Brown sugar, but think that White sugar might make them a little lighter. I added 1 tbsp. of pure vanilla, they were not overly sweet but I like that, my family piles on enough whipped cream, berries and Syrup that you wouldn't want them to be any sweeter than they were. This is a keeper for sure.
These were wonderful! My picky husband liked them and my two sons kept wanting more. My two year old kept trying to grab at the left over ones I had cooling on a rack to freeze. Great recipe...thank you.
Pretty good. :)
These waffles tasted good, but were not worth the extra effort in making them. They were really light and fluffy, and we prefer a denser waffle.
Needs 2 tsp. vanilla or batter tastes too plain - amazing receipe otherwise!
I made these for the first time this morning. They were delicious! I only had 1 cup of buttermilk and didn't want to make sour milk, so I used 1 cup of buttermilk and 1 cup of nonfat milk. Also, I did as other reviewers have said and added the entire egg, without separating them first. I only had whole wheat pastry flour on hand, but they still turned out great and the texture was wonderful. This recipe did make quite a few waffles for our small family, so I was able to freeze a couple extras. Thanks for the great recipe! I'll make it next time as written.
This is my favorite WAFFLE recipe!!!!!!!!!!
I added a cup of pumpkin and 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice and they were delicious! My children couldn't get enough of them. Definitely a keeper!
My Family loved the waffles. My Husband said they have inspired him to bake more things from home made recipes.
These were the best!! A little time consuming but so worth it. They smell just as wonderful as they taste!
Follow the recipe exactly and you'll have great waffles. The first time I made it, I didn't read it well enough and it was too runny. The second time was perfect
Finally found a waffle recipe that tastes like the kind you get in a diner. This was delicious...after making a few waffles & tasting them decided to add a bit of vanilla extract to the batter...other than that followed the recipe exactly and they came out perfect.
These waffles are awesome! They seem like a bit of work but really it's not much, especially considering how great they turn out. I would suggest preparing it like the directions say, or at least whipping the egg whites so the waffles are nice and fluffy. I also add cinnamon or vanilla extract sometimes...both are very nice additions :)
The best waffle recipe I have found so far. I added blueberries to my batter. These were light and fluffy.
Delicious! Add a t of Vanilla. It gives it just a bit more flavor! Worth the bit of extra time it takes to prepare!!
I get groans now when I buy frozen waffles. Thanks for the recipe.
Very light and tasty! Added a dash of vanilla and used regular instead of buttermilk.
I was hesitant to try this since some of the reviews had commented it was a lot of work, HOWEVER I am so glad I decided to try it anyway. These waffles are worth any extra steps you have to take. Just do it ... you will be thrilled with the results.
If using the Self-Rising flour omit the salt, baking soda and baking powder. Recipe was spot on for batter consistency. I followed the recipe as stated except for the flour. I never buy All-Purpose so I adjusted for the Self-Rising. I made 2 batches, one was plain and the other was more flavorful. I added 1/2 tsp on vanilla and about 1/2 cup of blueberries. The dash of vanilla and blueberries made a great waffle. I think one should add a dash of vanilla if using the original recipe for extra flavor. This one is a keeper.
Great recipe, making and freezing them all the time. Thank you
These were the fluffiest waffles I have ever made. I followed the recipe with a few variations - I was out of butter, so I used 1/4 cup vegetable shortening with 1 tsp of water as a substitute. Also, I don't keep buttermilk on hand so I added 2 tbsp to 2 cups of whole milk and let it sit for about 5 minutes. I also added 1 tsp vanilla extract. This recipe is well worth the effort.
These waffles do produce a beautiful color and wonderful texture. I did not quite like that the flavor was egg. Think if I do make this again I will add some flavor like vanilla or cinnamon & nutmeg or all three. Still trying to find the recipe that they use at my favorite breakfast place in Chicago (Cozy Corner). Will keep looking thank you for the recipe though.
This recipe tastes amazing! We made them with a few changes: gluten free w/Bob's Red Mill AP Flour, ground flax seed as an egg replacement, regular milk and cherries. They were a hit with the whole family! :)
This recipe makes great waffles, but the preparation time was so long that my family was barking at me in hunger! I can't imagine what would have happened if it was breakfast.
very tasty! I added a little vanilla extract and almond extract, everyone loved it.
Other reviewers were correct: this is NOT a project for a weekday morning, unless said weekday morning is a holiday. That said, the waffles were very, very good. They tasted wonderful, and the texture, although different from "mix" waffles, was not displeasing. My husband prefers crispier waffles, so I melted the butter (I'm not sure why this works, but it does!) and baked his for a little longer. The recipe makes more than the three of us can consume on a Saturday morning, so I'll wrap the leftovers and we'll have them tomorrow. The only complaint (from our teenager) is that the waffles were a little "eggy". Next time, I'll try it with only two yolks. Vanilla might make a nice addition, but I don't think it's necessary. Will definitely make again.
Really good! Light, crisp and fluffy. It did dirty a lot of bowls, so I probably won't make it often, but a good recipe to try. I loved the use of buttermilk.
First waffle recipe I've ever made. They were good, but I thought they were missing some oomph, so I substituted the all-purpose with whole wheat the second time around and they were fantastic! Really hearty with the wheat, but my boyfriend loved them either way. I made mine with fresh blueberries, YUM!
the title says it all...they were VERY good...and i luv it when the dh says these are REALLY good...i made them for him for his valentine's breaky today...am sure he will be asking for them again...i was impressed how nice and fluffy and tasty they were...i didn't change or add a thing to this recipe...i got 16 waffles so i froze some for the future...but thanks so very much for sharing this recipe...
After many years of searching, I finally found my favorite waffle recipe! I don't do all the complicated steps, either. I just pour every thing in and mix it with a wisk. I also use white sugar instead of brown, just because we like the taste of a slightly sweeter waffle.
The texture of these waffles is great! I followed the directions exactly as written. They were nice and fluffy and moist. The taste is lacking a little though. I don't normally eat syrup on my waffles, but I did feel I needed it with these. I made another batch and added blueberries. Those turned out pretty well too. Thanks for the recipe!
Wonderful flavor! Better Than Dennys or IHop. Thank you.
I've made these waffles numerous times now and they always turn out wonderfully. My entire family of 7 loves them!
My family went crazy over these. They were really good, but to be honest, I didn't see the difference between these and other good waffles I've made. But, 5 stars since they were very good and my family thinks they are the best ever! I didn't do anything different, except add a tsp of vanilla, and cinnamon to a batch. Thanks for a great recipe!
These are yummy! I followed step 1 exactly. Did step 2 but only used 2 eggs and put in the entire egg. I skipped step 3 completely. My waffles came out just fine this way. I did not mix the dry ingredients with the wet until I was ready to cook them. My husband and kids love these. Thanks!
MMM...Mmmm!! My whole family loved these crispy, yet tender waffles. It was a bit more work, and lots of dishes to do, but it is worth it. AND I have some left over to freeze. Yay, breakfast tomorrow!
These waffles looked nice but they had no flavour. They were also oddly light. I would not make these again.
Best tasting waffle recipe! The only thing I did diffrent was to subsitute the butter milk with evaporated (fat free) milk.
I am giving this recipe and 3 star for one reason and it's not taste. The taste and texture was wonderful...best I've had as far as homeade goes, but NO ONE wants to whip up egg whites at 5 in the morning for a quick brekfast waffle. I would say to make these AHEAD of time and freeze.
Delicious!! Made these for breakfast this a.m. and they were a hit!! The only variation I made to the recipe was to add 1 TBLS of Vanilla. Beating the egg whites does add a little time to the recipe, but it is oh-so-worth-it!!
My family loves waffles and has hard time finding the recipe my dad had from my childhood. This is the best one we've found in years of searching. Taste, texture, easy to make. As my husband says, this one's a keeper!
Excellent recipe. I made these in school with my students and they loved them! Nice and crisp on the outside, soft on the inside and perfect flavor. I might be inclined to add some vanilla.
Great recipe. Light texture and slightly sweet. I love it substituting "white" whole wheat flour.
I was really excited for these due to all the great reviews, but I didn't think they were all that great. Kind of heavy and bland tasting. Made exactly as stated. Will keep looking for my perfect waffle recipe.
Loved these waffles. I asked my son what would he like special for dinner, he responded chicken and waffles. Interesting? I was going to use a boxed pancake mix, but thought I'll try it from scratch, found this recipe. My son said this is definitely a 5 out of 5. My husband hates waffles, but loved this. It's a keeper
These were worth every bit of effort! My kids had fun and they learned how to separate eggs! We mixed in Chocolate chips in and they turned out excellent! Thank you!
I loved these! I didn't change a thing and the whole family found them to be completely delicious. Had fun making them, too. Great recipe!
Followed recipe exactly. Good waffles, but didn't taste anything special at all for the time invested in this recipe.
I prepared this recipe for 2 servings. This made two wonderful waffles. I sprinkled chopped pecans on top of the batter before baking. They were crunchy on the outside and soft & tender inside.
This recipe was very good. Because I had strawberries on hand and needed to use them up, they were added to this recipe (sliced thin). I also subsituted the milk for buttermilk, cause buttermilk makes everything taste better. And because I added buttermilk, about 1 scant tsp of baking soda was added in addition to the baking powder. The baking powder reacts with the acid in the buttermilk enhancing the rise and fluffiness factor. Also added some vanilla and butter extracts (about 1 1/2 tsp.). Make this recipe and enjoy.
This recipe is too complicated for just waffles. I ditched the egg whites and just threw it all together. Came out great
Whew, lots of work - but my partner loves them!
These were wonderful. I followed the recipe almost exactly. I used dark brown sugar and added just a pinch of sugar to the egg whites. Will definitely used this again--the are well worth the time and effort
Definitely a recipe worth tucking away. I recommend going through the trouble of separating the egg, and sifting. Its a little extra work, but the fluffy texture is well worth it. I did add 1 tsp of vanilla and 1/2 tsp of almond extract to give it a fuller flavor. Received raving reviews! Enjoy!
Worth beating egg whites for! I substitute 1/3 to 1/2 of the white flour with brown and they're still nice and fluffy.
Added chocolate chips, ya!
Really good! This batter is really fluffy and my hubby added too much to the waffle iron for the first batch. But I really liked this! Great texture and flavor!
These were disappointing. I expected a crispy outside, and it was soft. I even left them in the waffle iron longer than expected. Not at all what I expected.
First off, thanks for submitting this great recipe. I made the batter EXACTLY as given (it always bothers me when folks change a million things and then complain about how the recipe turned out...submit your own!). I also used a Waring Pro rotating Belgian waffle iron, heat dial to 5.5 and let it cook a bit past the first beep cycle. These waffles were some of the best I've had. They remained crispy on the outside even though I poured syrup on top and walked away to load my dishwasher. I plan to put mini choc chips in the batter for my kids. These were great, and the batter really only took me about 12 minutes to prepare, even with the yolk/white separating.
Great - next time I'll add some vanilla and cinnamon though.
This recipe makes the best waffles I've ever eaten! Don't just put everything in the mixer like some have. Beating the egg whites helps keep the waffles ligt and fluffy. It's definitely worth the effort, and the waffles are incredible
Not only can you freeze them in ziplocs, you just pop them in your toaster! Fast yummy breakfast! Much less expensive than store bought, and better tasting! Who would have thought...!
I didn't bother seperating the eggs and they still came out great
Easy and tasty. Had to use regular milk with lemon juice to substitute for buttermilk and still came out fine.
These were pretty good. I followed the recipe exactly (only a tiny bit of yolk got in with the egg whites so they didn't whip up as much as they would otherwise have done). We liked them but didn't think they were our favorite waffles ever. Like past reviewers said, there just wasn't that much flavor, even when I added blueberries.
Wonderful! My husband actually liked this recipe.
Really good. Not a simple recipe, but worth the effort.
These waffles are so good. They take a little time but are worth the time and effort. I did add a little vanilla as someone suggested...wonderful! If they are not as crispy on the outside as you want, put the top of the waffle iron down on them, again, for about 30 seconds...that helps.
I thought the taste was great.. they were crispy first and then got soft.. kind of an interesting texture, but delicious.
Made these twice already and my boys ( 7 & 12 ) love them. Crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside. Better than the Waffle House!
Fantastic...slightly more light and fluffy when the egg whites are beaten according to the recipe directions versus being added whole. Either way, these are our favorite waffles.
Best waffles ever, if you take the time to follow the respice they turn out super fluffy and sweet. Best waffles I've ever had.
Wonderful waffles were indeed wonderful!!! Crispy on the outside, very nice flavor. Will make again in bulk and freeze for my kid's winter breakfasts. Might add just a tad bit of vanilla next time and see what happens.
While not a, "one bowl recipe", the taste of these definitely earns five stars...the texture was very light, with a mild but perfect taste!
This is the most delicious waffle recipe I have ever made! I used to make waffles with regular old pancake batter, but now I see the benefits of using a batter specifically for waffles. (: For flavour, I added a dash of vanilla. This was definitely a good idea. Inconveniently, though, I didn't have any buttermilk in my fridge. You can make a very quick, easy replacement for buttermilk, though. For this recipe, I put 2 cups of milk in a measuring cup, and added 2 tbsp of vinegar (instead of vinegar, you can also use lemon juice, too). I let it sit for about 10 minutes. It was the perfect substitute! These waffles were light, fluffy, and delicious. The batter made 22 waffles for me. I would definitely recommend this recipe to anyone who asked! Yes, it took more time then you would expect for a waffle recipe, but it was TOTALLY worth it. :)
