A friend shared the recipe for these light and delicious waffles. The cinnamon cream syrup is a nice change from maple syrup, and it keeps quite well in the fridge. Our two children also like it on toast. —Amy Gilles, Ellsworth, Wisconsin

  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Combine the egg yolks, milk and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into batter. Bake in a preheated waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions.

"This was probably my fault the syrup didn't come out. it was very runny, and very sweet. The waffles were also very thin. But they tasted great! I took some blueberry preserves we had and mixed a little of the syrup to make a blueberry syrup and we liked that. I will make again to make sure I didn't do something wrong."

"Not a review, but I had to click stars to ask a question. Could this batter be used to make pancakes? I do not own a waffle iron. It sounds delicious!"

"This is a great waffle recipe: provides the fluffiness of Belgian Waffles, but the recipe is quicker because of the lack of yeast. One improvement I would make, is adding a bit more sugar to the batter, since I like sweet waffles.

Also, I used peanut oil, since that is all I had on hand, and it worked well. Also, I didn't have all the ingredients for the syrup, so I made my own caramel syrup, which I wrote up here: http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/community/super-quick-caramel-sauce"

"Waffles were exactly as described- fluffy, light, and tasted amazing.

Syrup was delicious too. A little on the sweet side, so we spread each waffle with all natural peanut butter first and then drizzled some syrup on top for flavor. Amazing!!!"
