Thank you Bev, for such an easy recipe! Just got a Belgian waffle iron for Xmas, and the recipes that came with it were horrible! I was going to return the thing when I decided to check 'zaar for better recipes. I came across yours, and because one of your recipes is an all time favorite of mine, I figured I could not go wrong with your waffles! They came out wonderful. I made them plain this time and got 12 waffles out of the recipe. In my waffle maker (Salton) I needed slightly less than 1/3 cup batter or they were oozing out the sides. I had to play around a bit to get the perfect amount, but once I got going they turned out wonderful. They kids had them with butter and syrup AND then had them with ice cream :) I can't wait to try them with the add-ins! Thanks a bunch!

This recipe was soooo simple. The other reviewer was correct the recipes that come with the irons are horrible and not quick. This was perfect comfort food for a cold night (it was 7 degrees when I made these!) the only thing I added was a little vanilla. Thanks for a easy and wonderful recipe! :)

We just enjoyed these for dinner and they are so good! I love that you get a beautiful crispy waffle without the pesky beating of the egg whites seperately from the other ingredients. I know that sounds lazy, but perhaps I am, just a tad. Thanks, Bev!

We're big waffle lovers here, and are usually satisfied with a belgian waffle mix I buy at the store. But I wasn't thrilled enough at the price to make them very often, and don't have them on hand as a rule. Enter your recipe into our lives: we'll never go back to the mix! They had a crispy outside and a rich center, and were very light but satisfying. Delicious!!

"These are excellent," says 8 year old Joel. I've made these yummy waffles about a dozen times since we discovered this recipe, and they keep getting better! I've learned that step 2 is very important. I've learned just how much oil to use to grease my waffle maker: not much!!!! I've learned how dark we like our waffles (quite dark). We also use 1 1/2 tsp vanilla and reduce oil to 4 Tbsp. This recipe is a little finnicky, but it's the best I've found yet, and it grows on you as you figure out its quirks. I highly recommend it. Thanks for sharing, Jb! : )

Looking for a light waffeln version we found this one.
The fat content is much lower than in the others also the egg content is reduced. They came outside cripy and inside soft!
The batter was perfect, not running!
Thanks for the recipe.
Note: my children prepared this alone with a waffeln maker from friends!

I can't believe I haven't rated these yet! This is my go-to waffle recipe. It's easy and the waffles are delicious and fluffy. I usually add vanilla to the batter and let everyone add the extras at the table. We had guests and doubled the recipe one time, everyone was impressed with how simple and tasty homemade waffles could be. Thanks for sharing!

These waffles are just great. We used the blueberries and they couldn't have tasted better. The waffles were golden on the outside and tender in the middle. What more could you want? Thanks for posting this lovely recipe.

I just omitted the salt. I didn't add any addition to the batter. The waffles had a perfect texture. DH was so happy. He said : now that's a waffle LOL Cause they were crispy like he wants and moist inside. I wanted to take a photo so much but all batteries were dead :( Thanks Bev :) Made for Cookbook tag game
