Bergy you are a genius!!!! I got my husband to put this together for me Christmas eve, as Santa was giving my DD a waffle iron(long story) and the next day they were ready when we were. They were so good. The texture was fabulous. You have certainly done it again.

These are delicious and pretty easy. I was a little concerned about leaving them out all night without refrigeration, but it was no problem. The last batch was the best, but the iron was really good and hot by then. These deserve to be made again and again, and I will. Thanks Bergy!

These are great waffles. We've been trying to fiddle with the Fanny Farmer recipe with NO luck and stumbled upon this recipe. Even though it uses much less yeast than the other recipe, the batter ended up being much thicker and when cooked, it was much lighter. Because I had a cup of buttermilk that needed to be used, we included that in the second batch, and I think I may continue to do this. Wonderful, light but crispy with a great yeasty flavor. Perfect. Thanks for posting this!

These were the best waffles I have ever had. They were very light with a crispy crust. I was a little worried about the runny consistancy of the batter, but I worried for nothing. If you don't try these, you don't know what you are missing.

These were light and crisp and delicious! I tripled the batch to use up the yeast packet, also to put some in the freezer. We topped these with butter and syrup and tried shredded cheese the second helping. Thank you!

I am not sure what went wrong with these, but the texture was weird. They got crispy on the bottom, but were soft (almost doughy) on top. I even adjusted it to a darker setting and it was still that way. They also didn't rise at all; I used active dry yeast instead of instant yeast and maybe that is the reason? I also subbed coconut oil for the butter, but I have done that in many pancake and waffle recipes with success. The flavor was good, but the overall product was mediocre. Sorry.

Yum! Great waffles! I used 1/2 the butter to cut down on fat. Super easy, too!

Thanks for posting this recipe, Bergy, we really like it. Our waffle maker is the thick round kind and takes a while to cook. I love waffles, and I searched and searched for a recipe that wouldn't get flat and dense half-way through the batter. This is it! I always use whole wheat pastry flour or white whole wheat flour. I also cut the butter to 6 T, since the waffles could be a bit greasy for some people, and they tended to burn when we reaheated them in the toaster from the freezer. I tried the recipe once with only 4 T butter, but they were very dry, I don't recommend it. 6 is perfect. These are great with fresh strawberries and real maple syrup!

Wow! These were so much better than any store bought products. My husband loved them!! He was skeptical about leaving anything out overnight, but it worked like a charm. We added fresh blueberries and the texture and taste was still amazing. Thanks for a great recipe!
