    Ten stars! We love waffles, but I've never been able to make decent waffles at home - they always turn out crispy for about 30 seconds, then go soft. Not these!!! These had a nice crisp crust, and they stayed that way even with the syrup. And that syrup!!! I could drink it - so delicious! I think it would be amazing over bread pudding and ice cream, too! We loved the subtle yeast flavor from the fermentation, and they weren't too sweet, which was great because of the super sweet Dutch Honey. Anyhow, I could go on about these forever. Suffice to say these are going into my Best Of file and I'll be sure to make these anytime we have overnight guests.

    These waffles are delicious and we enjoyed them for Father's Day. I love that it is based off of a yeast dough. It has a great crumb and consistency. I added a couple of tablespoons of sugar to the batter and next time I will add some vanilla extract to add another level of flavor. Otherwise, they were perfect. I also liked the maple honey syrup as it made it very interesting. The father of the day loved it too! Thank you Breezer for sharing. Made it for FYC tag game on yuku.

    I loved the convenience of making the batter the night before so all I had to do in the morning was fire up the waffle iron. I had never made waffles with yeast so I expected them to have a yeasty flavor, but they didn't. They were light, fluffy and really delicious! In fact, after his first bite, my husband declared that they were his new favorite waffle. We loved them served with the Dutch honey, even though I had to make a couple of changes. I went to the cupboard to get my maple syrup and found that I was all out. I ended up using maple pancake syrup instead. Because pancake syrup is so much sweeter than maple syrup, I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup. I probably could have omitted the sugar altogether because it was plenty sweet. I can't wait to try this with real maple syrup. This recipe makes a lot (I got 30 4" waffles), so I froze the rest to enjoy later. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is definitely a keeper! **Made for 2013 Football Pool**

    I love waffles and these didn't disappoint me!! I really enjoyed how bubbly they were from the yeast and baking powder, after sitting in the fridge for over 8 hours. I tagged these planning to make them right away, as I thought I had all ingredients on hand. But upon opening my dried milk powder canister, the milk was in one big cake, FL weather, ugh!!! So then I kept forgetting to pick up some more of the milk powder and then by the time I did, I had finished using the heavy cream for another recipe. So I decided to go ahead and make the waffles and just used regular syrup this time. I made 1/2 of the recipe and it makes quite a bit of waffles. Great way to plan for breakfasts for the holidays or when having guests visiting. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for your win (3rd win, wtg) in the football pool!!!! :)
