Homemade is always so much better than processed food! Kids always appreciate these! Beating the egg whites separately and folding them gently into the batter ensures a lighter, crispier waffle.

first,i must say that thse waffles looked great coming out of waffle maker,but i'm sorry i wished they tasted as good as they me they had no taste at all,even with the margarine and maple praline syrup. i'm sorry i wish that i could've given it a higher rating.i will finish using what i had frozen,but i don't think i'll make this again.

I searched all over for a good waffle recipie. This is it. I usually cut it in half for the two of us. I also use water instead of milk to make it cheap. I use this for pancakes too, just don't beat the egg whites. My hubby loves the pancakes. Wonderful Wonderful

Loved these pancakes! Made pecan waffles for myself, plain for the boyfriend and added some peanut butter chips for my nephew who spent the night. Just got a waffle maker for christmas and wanted a good regular recipe. What good luck I had.
