I subtracted a teaspoon of milk and added a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. Other than that I kept to the recipe. These waffles were crisp on the outside but soft on the inside--very fluffy. I served these with homemade raspberry sauce and we all loved them. NOTE: When I whipped the egg whites I made sure to chill my Kitchen Aid mixer bowl and the whipping attachment itself before trying to whip them. I really only had an hour but that was just enough time to give me the help I needed. My egg whites seemed to whip up faster and they were quite fluffy. Read More

For some strange reason when I tried to make this it didn't come out very tasty. I was hard as a rock and tasteless can anybody tell me what I did wrong? I would like to try and make it again but I'm afriad it's just going to be a waste like last time but maybe I'll try it again tomorrow morning. Read More

These waffles were delicious. I used this recipe for my first time trying waffles. I did add 1/2 tsp. vanilla and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon since another reviewer suggested this. I'll definitely make these again. Read More

This recipe is the same one my mother uses, except I use melted butter instead of oil. I'm only giving 4 stars because the butter makes a huge difference. It's important not to mix these up too much after you fold in the egg whites or they will be flat and chewy. The waffles are fluffy and light because of the egg whites. Also, be sure not to under-cook them. Then they'll turn out soggy. Spray your waffle iron with cooking spray, and make sure they're lightly browned. That's what separates them from the mix. They're wonderful! Read More

This is my new "go to" waffle recipe. I did make a couple of small changes though. I added about 1tsp of vanilla and I subbed melted butter for the oil. Fabulous! Read More

My first attempt at "from scratch" waffles. My kids thought this was great! My daughter usually picks at everything but ate everything on her plate. I did change the amount of eggs (3) as other reviewer mentioned. Read More
