The texture of the waffles turned out lovely, but they were MUCH too salty. I may try them again one day without the salt.

I used this recipe for our waffles, but I seperated the eggs and whipped up the whites, then folded them in after the remaining ingredients were mixed together. We loved them thank you for sharing.

I think this is a wonderful basic recipe but definitely needs some adjustments to make it a great recipe. I made it twice, the first time it came out pretty doughy. It might have been because I always substitute half of the white flour for wheat. The second time I separated the egg yolk from the white and beat the whites until stiff before adding to the batter. That made a HUGE difference in the consistency of the waffles. Also, since this recipe calls for baking soda, do not add anymore salt. Baking soda is essentially salt already. I even used only a little more than half of the baking soda and no salt. Last but not least, add a few tablespoon of sugar for some balance and most definitely vanilla extract!

I made these exactly like the recipe reads. They were delicious; my whole family raved! I mixed a half of jar of strawberry preserves with fresh chopped strawberries and finished with maple syrup

We really liked these. I grind my own flour so I used one cup fresh ground white wheat and one cup brown rice flour. I mixed the wet and dry ingredients separately and added a few tablespoons sugar to the dry. Then blended the wet and dry without over-mixing. I didn't think 1/2 teaspoon was too much salt. Perhaps with white flour it might be. We had them with raspberry freezer jam, vanilla greek yogurt, whipped cream and real maple syrup. Delicious!

These were delicious! I doubled the recipe, added 2 tbsp vanilla and some wheat germ. I'll definitely make these again, thank you!

These are our 'go to' waffles for our belgian wafflemaker. Rich, creamy, almost custardy taste to the waffle. Not sweet. It is important to mix all dry ingredients before adding the wet. We also use about 1-3 Tbs more of buttermilk.

I made this recipe just as directed. They were good but seemed to be missing something. I think maybe just a little sugar, like 2 to 3 teaspoons mixed in with the dry ingredients might be all it needs.<br/>I really like how easy to mix up they were, no separating eggs, etc. I will definitely make these again. Thanks for posting.
