Reviews for Golden Buttermilk Waffles
"I did similar modifications as other reviewers.. I exchanged butter for the oil and added a tsp of vanilla. They turned out light and fluffy. I think if this recipe already had the vanilla I would have given it five stars."
"It's a simple base recipe, though I ended up exchanging butter for oil, adding a little sugar and vanilla."
"Not bad. These are the only waffles I have made that are actually crispy. Only complaint, they smell and somewhat taste like fish. It likely is the canola oil. I'll find a substitute to use for next time.I used a Belgian waffle maker. Great texture.Edit: tried with coconut oil. Less fishy, but no flavor. I even tried adding sugar and vanilla but it didn't help. If someone can find a way to add taste to this texture, they would be great."
"This was terrific. I read the 'coffeeandcake' review and was hooked. I also added vanilla and more buttermilk, but went overboard and put in small pieces of pineapple. It was fabulous!"
"Delicious! I used whole wheat instead of all purpose flour & butter instead of oil - fabulous!"
"easy, tasted great and cooked up well."
"Easy to prepare. Yummy!"
"Had leftover buttermilk to use up, so I tried this recipe. The waffles were delicious! Nice and light, with great flavor. I used a Belgian wafflemaker, and they were as pretty as they were tasty!"
"Will make this my family recipe for now on....terrific!!!!"
