    Roxygirl in Colorado's Note:

    This hearty waffle recipe comes from an issue of Parent's Magazine. Ive made it every week for years and it comes out great every time. I double it and freeze the leftover waffles and reheat in toaster oven.

      This is a very good waffle recipe that we use in the belgian maker. We ommit the maple extract, and instead use a 1.5x the amount of vanilla and the zest from an organic mandarin. They are exclenet. We normally make at least a double batch, and freeze the leftovers after they have cooled completly so they do not squash. They re-heat at 400*f for 10 min, and are just like fresh. Excelent recipe, thank you!

      It's been a while since a recipe made me smile. I agree with another reviewer that there's the perfect amount of leavening to make these waffles fluffy without tasting like baking powder. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that this is a no-fuss recipe. There is no beating of egg whites, no separate mixing of yolks with butter, no warming everything so that butter won't clump from other cold ingredients. Recipes like this make it possible to enjoy waffles on a weekday. We ate ours this morning with strawberries and everyone left for the day in a good mood.

      Easy to make and tastes great. I have made other waffle recipes but none turned out as good as this one.
