True Belgian Waffles

"A friend of mine shared this recipe with me, and I have made waffles this way ever since. They are so light, slightly sweet, and just perfect served with fresh fruit and a little whipped cream, or syrup. A wonderful way to start the day. Hope you enjoy them too."

    Unfortunately these weren't much of a hit at our house. Too gummy, way too sweet, and we felt kind of sick to our stomachs after eating just a normal portion. I think it's because we eat so much healthy food that the amount of sugar and butter in the waffles just did us in.

    This was a wonderful recipe. I don't like my waffles super sweet, I'd rather get the sweetness from fruit or syrup so I cut the sugar down to 1/4 cup and reduced the milk to 1 1/4 cups. They had great texture and flavor. I will definitely use this recipe again.

    The texture was crispy the way I like them, but way to sweet. I had to almost burn them to get them to cook all the way in my Belgian waffle maker. I will make it again but next time with less sugar.

    Very tasty! Follow the recipe exactly and you won't be disappointed. Found this on the Taste of Home web site.


Hi Everyone! I am so happy that I found this site because I love trying new recipes, and this is the best place for doing just that. I was born and raised a city girl, but now reside in the country. I love the slower pace of life. I have been married for over 30 years to my wonderful husband and friend. We enjoy spending as much time as possible with our families and friends. Growing up with loving parents and a large family (10 including me), we were one big happy family. Our families are very close today, and we get together monthly to celebrate everyone's birthday. I volunteer at a local hospital, and enjoy boating, golfing, and reading. I love to cook, but my passion is baking. I found recipezaar a few months ago, and found so many delicious recipes. We get together with our families often, and since all of us like to cook, we share new recipes along with the tried and true. Good Food and Great Family and Friends....what could be a better combination.
