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 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.

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.

Loved this recipe! It was simple (which is handy in this house, since the kids like to help), didn't require as much oil/butter as others waffle recipes, and they were quite light and fluffy. I did add half a tsp of vanilla, but otherwise left the recipe as is. Also, probably due in part to the lower oil quantity, I would recommend spraying the waffle maker with Pam in between waffles. I will definitely be using this again...and again!

Wonderful. They were indeed light as a feather inside. My wife really enjoyed them, especially since she didn't have to cook...I mean...after I threw in some blueberries. I've retired my previous 'favorite' waffle recipe from the back of the Bisquick box...(shudder)

These truly are the best belgian waffles Ive ever had. Ive made MANY kinds of waffles in the past, but I think Ive found my absolute favorite. Honestly, I dont think I will continue to look for another belgian waffle recipe. They couldnt possibly get any better than this! Thank you SO MUCH marie for this wonderful recipe. My only suggestions would be to either mention to follow your waffle irons cooking instructions, or to include actual cooking instructions in your recipe :-) Again..thanks for this wonderful recipe. Thank you..From my entire family!!!

We really liked these. This was the third recipe that I have tried for Belgian Waffles and this is our favorite so far. I used 1 cup white and 1 cup whole wheat flour and they were great still fluffy and crispy. I did add 1 tsp vanilla.

These were excellent! And silly me--I was in such a rush that I didn't read the directions until right before I dumped the last ingredient in the bowl! So I didn't sift the dry ingredients, separate the eggs, etc. :( I just put it all in a bowl, whisked really well, and poured it in the waffle maker. And we LOVED them! We couldn't see how doing the other steps could possibly improve on them. I'm going to toss my old recipe and keep this one!

This is a fantastic recipe for waffles. <br/>They are light inside and have a wonderful flavor.<br/><br/>Our 2 year old LOVES them plain as a snack. They don't produce crumbs when cooled, so he can eat them in the car without a mess!<br/><br/>Substituted coconut oil and they were even better!
