"Yum! Fluffy waffles that are crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. I added vanilla. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"My family asked me to make waffles for them one sunday morning , I found this recipe on recipezaar and followed the instructions to the tee,and they were the best waffles we had ever had, they literally melted in your mouth. We choose strawberry and whip cream for toppings. This one definately went into our cookbook favorites. Good one Elaine Thanks Rayce."
"Light and tasty!!! Easy to make. Prepared the recipe as directed, but did add a bit of vanilla. My "Picky Panel of Judges" gave it 5 stars! Definitely a keeper."
"The worst ever waffles.
Recipe followed exactly and it tastes nothing like proper waffles. Yuck!
So much for my Sunday afternoon treat:(
All I get is a bad taste in my mouth and a load of dirty dishes to wash."
"These were really great! I hate waffles that are too thick or cakey so these were perfect. The reviewers who said they were too thin or lumpy didn't follow the directions correctly. Make sure you don't heat the butter too much or it will cook the eggs when you add it in -- maybe that caused people some problems?"
"Horrible! These reviews are not real. Stomach still aching from the overabundance of baking powder."
"These waffles were not as good as rated. They were very heavy and did not rise and get nice and fluffy. I've had much better from a generic pancake mix. I would not recommend this recipe if you are looking for light and fluffy waffles."
"I dont see how you cant make a review on a recipe you changed!...
i tried it as is.. and thought it was WAY TOO GREASY AND THIN"
"The batter is way toooooo thin! Tooooo much butter! I've made much better waffle recipes."
"Way Way Way too much butter in this recipe. The first time I tried it I did it exact to the recipe and it was pretty bleak. Waffles were thin and greasy. Next time around I did some edits. Used canola instead of butter and did 1/4 cup instead of a 1/2. Added an extra egg, and used white whole wheat flour. A big improvement with the changes."
"Didn't like these at all! The batter is too runny, there's way too much baking powder, and these waffles don't get fluffy at all. If you're looking for a good waffle recipe, keep looking."
"not very good at all. bitter, salty, and greasy."
"This is a very easy and very good waffle recipe. I always add vanilla to mine...adds a different dimension to them. I also recommend that if you make too many..just stick them in a ziploc and freeze them. My son pops them in the toaster for breakfast or lunch...easy, quick, homemade, and tasty snack. He claims the microwave makes them soggy, so that that extra minute in the toaster."
"This was as good as the 20 other people said it was. This is now my permanent waffle recipe. We followed the recipe word by word, except added a teaspoon of vanilla like other reviewers suggested. FYI - We kept our waffles on a preheated pizza stone and that kept them crispy until they were ready to be served. "
"Not happy at all. These were way to thin!!!!!!"
"I followed the recipe to a T and it was increadibly liquidy. I had to add almost an extra 1/4 cup of flour to make it the right consistency. After that they were fine. They were pretty moist in the middle, but would only brown just a little on the outside. They tasted like standard waffles to me, nothing special."
"I am an innkeeper and I normally use a yeasted waffle batter which I prepare the night before. I have never made a recipe without yeast that was acceptable.....until now! This is an excellent recipe and I will definitely go to it in the future. The waffles were crispy on the outside and light and delicate on the inside. I tweaked just slightly using 2 T of sugar instead of 2 t and I also added 1 t of vanilla as many others have suggested. Served with maple syrup and fresh blueberries for a true "died and gone to heaven" experience. Thank you for this definite keeper!"
"Tasted good, but they were flat not fluffy. Won't make this one again."
"I have to say that I was a bit disappointed with this recipe. They came out flat and floppy. I'm thinking maybe they were too liquidy even though I followed the recipe exactly. The taste was good."
"Sorry! I am in the minority on this one. The batter was SO thin and the end result almost tasted "fried" due to the high butter content and the waffles were so too thin with no body to them. We ended up pitching the whole bowl and starting over..."
