MY REVIEW

"Wow, so yummy! I made these today and quadrupled the recipe so I could freeze a bunch that my family could eat for breakfast. I used 3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour and 2 tablespoons of cornstarch just because. I also only used 3/4 cup of molasses and used only 3 tablespoons of brown sugar for a quadruple batch, WoW! Yes, it tastes fine. I also did not seperate the eggs, who has time for that? Instead of melted butter I used about a 1/4 cup of applesauce and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Very good, nice spicy flavor to keep waffles interesting. Great warmed up, they make me crave winter even more."

"These were a big hit for Sunday brunch. Not too sweet or spicy. Chewy texture reminded everyone of waffle cones. Will be making these again over the holidays!"
