This is a good basic waffle recipe, and you don't need any sugar to make it flavorful. I do think that beating the egg whites and then folding them into the batter would make these waffles lighter.

I ended up making 3 batches of these. My kids just kept eating them. I did thin the batter down with a little bit more buttermilk so the batter would fill the waffle iron. I also make extra for the freezer. This will more than likely be our first choice for waffles.

This is a really good recipe. I used 1/4 cup Lighter Bake instead of the 1/2 cup melted butter and they turned out great! When asked how they are, my five-year-old replied, "Delicious!" Next time I will try using 1 cup each of all-purpose flour and whole grain white flour to boost the nutrition a bit. I was able to make 6 (6" square) waffles from the recipe.

Very good recipe. I used melted shortening instead of butter/marg., to cut down on some calories. I also separated my eggs, beat the egg whites and fold them in at the end. That always helps to make waffles lighter, I find.

This worked pretty well for us. They could be a little lighter, but they were easy to make and easy to cook (once I figured out how much batter to use for my waffle iron). This will become our standby recipe for when we want waffles fast. Thanks!

My family really loved these and they are very easy to make. I did add a little bit of sugar(about a tablespoon) and some vanilla for some added flavor. This was definitely one of the better recipes that I have found for waffles and will make it again.

Smells great. I did do a few changes, just for our family. I did one cup white and one cup whole wheat flours. Then, instead of using butter/margarine, I added applesauce. Also put a little vanilla and freshly ground nutmeg and wheat bran. Excellent base recipe. So easy to fiddle with.
