"So often, when you find a recipe, you wonder if the poster has actually made it. I can say that I've been eating these waffles for over 52 years--that's half a century of enjoyment! :) Every Sunday was Waffle Day and we never tired of it; it was a tradition that we loved to honour. First my Grandpa made these, then my Mum, and now I make them for my own family. This is a very, very thick batter. I use a wooden spoon to push it out of the batter bowl onto the hot waffle iron. It makes 4 old-fashioned waffles that are 4 squares; I don't know how many Belgian-style waffles it would make. This does NOT store well because of the rising reaction between the buttermilk and leavening so use up all the batter and freeze any extra waffles to enjoy later in the week. From my Home to Yours: I hope that you enjoy it as much as I have these five decades!"

"Absolutely delicious!!! The only waffle recipe I use now."
"These are delicious! Crispy on the outside but soft on the inside. I've found my "go to" waffle recipe!"
"These turned out lovely! Very full and fluffy and perfect! I followed Chef's advice to make sure everything was room temperature and I imagine that helped too. I highly recommend this simple and delish recipe!"
"I made these with chicken and waffles. The waffles were delicious, and not tasteless like some other recipes. I did add a little more brown sugar, and followed the recipe exactly."
"We absolutely love this recipe....I received a waffle maker as a gift this Christmas and I searched numerous sites for the perfect mix...I tried this blend on Sunday and it was a tremendous hit..I don't have to look any further....Thanks...."
"Loved grandpa's recipe and while you are at it, maybe you can throw in that heirloom armoire and antique Persian rug and grandma's ashes will work, too. Thanks"
