My son got me a new Belgian waffle maker fof Mother's Day and so I thought this would be the perfect recipe to give a try...The batter was very thick and very sweet even with cutting the sugar in half. My husband and daughter each only ate about half of their waffle befolre advising me that I didn't have to make them again. They didn't like the dry chalky texture. I had to agree with them about the texture and the overly sweetness just added to it. My son ate his whole waffle and said they weren't that bad, but I think he was just trying to be nice.
