    Oh, yes! Very nice tasting waffles! Easy to prepare, I thought, & satisfyingly served with a homemade blueberry syrup this time around! Will do these again, for sure! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in I Recommend recipe tag]

    Very tasty waffles. The batter mixes easily even with all the steps and the waffles turn out fluffy and light. I used my Belgian Waffle Maker (does not flip) and they were perfect! Thanks for sharing a great go-to recipe for waffles when I have a bit more time to prepare. Made for I Recommend event.

    We used this in our flip-top Belgian waffle maker -- maybe the same one the recipe came from, don't know -- and it made fantastic waffles. Our only complaint would be that it used a lot of dishes. It's an involved project, which could be done in a showy and sociable way for a breakfast event.
