Questions & Replies

  1. Do you need to spray the waffle iron before using?
  2. I don't own a waffle maker, think these would work in a silicon waffle "pan" and just bake them in the oven? (DYING to use these new waffle pans!)
  3. Has anyone used almond milk instead of whole milk
  4. I only use goats milk. Any one tried this recipe with that?
  5. How many calories in each one ?


  1. Yum! Fluffy waffles that are crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. I added vanilla. Thanks for a great recipe!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. The worst ever waffles. <br/><br/>Recipe followed exactly and it tastes nothing like proper waffles. Yuck!<br/><br/>So much for my Sunday afternoon treat:( <br/><br/>All I get is a bad taste in my mouth and a load of dirty dishes to wash.


  1. Tweaked by Adding lots of vanilla and cinnamon YUM!
  2. I used condensed milk and cut the yolks from the recipe. I believe this made them creamier, fluffier, and crisper on the outside.
  3. 1 tsp of Vanilla Extract Handful of Blueberries
  4. I just used the egg white; increased the sugar amount by another teaspoon and added vanilla. My husband always begs me to make the waffles.
  5. Just added a bit of vanilla.


Hi! My name is Elaine. I am still currently in school, but one of my favorite hobbies, along with dancing, is to cook. Ever since I was really young, my mom and I would make everything together, especially cookies, cakes, and all other sweets. My dad always cooked dinners, and has passed down many good tips and wonderful recipes. I work whenever I can as a hostess at a nearby restaurant.
