These waffles are super crisp on the outside and light as a feather inside and so scrumptious! Avoid removing them from the waffle iron too soon; they should be a golden brown. Enjoy!

I searched high and low for a great recipe for my new Belgian waffle iron and I found the best with this one. After making it exactly by the recipe a few times, I modified it slightly (though it was already delicious the way it was :-) They are light, crispy on the outside, soft on the inside when freshly made.
My modifications were:
1) adding 1 tsp vanilla
2) adding 1 Tb malted milk powder
3) being more generous with the sugar with a heaping scoop, not a leveled-off cup
My kids both love these waffles and the recipe is easy to follow and even turns out well when you goof, LOL.... I mistakenly added twice as much oil with one batch and they were still wonderful!
I make a half recipe of these which still makes 4.5 large waffles on my George Foreman grill/waffle iron. (And I cook the waffles according to my appliance's instructions, 425 for 7-8 minutes.) What we don't eat then gets stored in a freezer bag for later. They do get soft/chewy after they cool down or are stored in refrigerator, but they are still delicious! Just microwave for a few seconds and enjoy. My toddler likes them plain as a snack, they are that sweet and tasty. And I like that they aren't "crumby" for him to eat when not in his high chair.
GREAT Recipe, Very quick and easy!!! Thank you. <br/><br/>I have a Magic-Chef TSK-240B. This recipe makes 5 (1 cup batter) or 6 (3/4th cup batter) Waffles. I cook for 2 minutes, then, I manually flip for an additional minute. <br/>PERFECT every time! <br/><br/>If I plan to freeze I only cook for 2 minutes (no flipping). <br/><br/>The substitutions I made (and will continue to use) are:<br/>Add up to 2 Teaspoons Vanilla<br/>Replace 1/2 cup of the Milk for 1/2 cup Ginger Ale <br/>(This ensures a light and fluffy batter, plus adds an extra wee bit of flavor)<br/>If you are using Self Rising flour, only add 1 Teaspoon of Baking Powder.
I was looking for a recipe to use in my new Kitchenaid Pro Line waffle maker. I chose this one because someone said that this one is so good they don't want to try any others, and that it's crisp outside and so light inside. It's true! I feel no need to try any other recipes, and that is unusual for me! I used half cake flour and half white whole wheat. I did add about a tsp of vanilla and 2 tbsp malted milk powder. I ended up with a waffle as good as any I've had at a restaurant--where I'd pay $6-$8 for it. The whole family was delighted, and my boys asked if I'm make them every night. I had to say no to that but we will be making them often!!!! I got 6 waffles from my Kitchenaid.
