A friend of mine shared this recipe with me, and I have made waffles this way ever since. They are so light, slightly sweet, and just perfect served with fresh fruit and a little whipped cream, or syrup. A wonderful way to start the day. Hope you enjoy them too.

Unfortunately these weren't much of a hit at our house. Too gummy, way too sweet, and we felt kind of sick to our stomachs after eating just a normal portion. I think it's because we eat so much healthy food that the amount of sugar and butter in the waffles just did us in.

The texture was crispy the way I like them, but way to sweet. I had to almost burn them to get them to cook all the way in my Belgian waffle maker. I will make it again but next time with less sugar.
