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!!!!"
"After 30 years of using another waffle recipe, we have switched to this one. My family loves the flavor."
"These were delicious. One small change: I didn't have enough buttermilk, so I added about 2 tablespoons of Coffeemate Vanilla Caramel coffee creamer to make up the difference. Just the lightest hint of vanilla-caramel. My brother, though, said they tasted like marshmallows. They were yummy just the same! Thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"I made these for dinner tonight and my family loved them. I added 1tbsp. of brown sugar and 1tsp. of vanilla when I made them. I will now use this as my standard waffle recipe."
"I had leftover buttermilk and looked for something to do with it when I found this recipe, we tried it because it used all the buttermilk we had left. We have been making it ever since. The four kids love these waffles and without adding sugar they will regularly eat the leftovers cold and without anything on them. They like it when I use almond extract instead of vanilla also, so we alternate. We use 1 cup of whole wheat spelt flour in place of regular, it adds a nice, nutty taste. These are a staple in our house, I have tried other recipes like gingerbread waffles, etc, and they prefer this recipe."
"This is our family favorite!"
"I added 2 tblsp of sugar, 2 tblsp of melted butter, 1 egg white, beaten, 1 tsp of vanilla, a pinch of cinnamon, + 1/4 c. oatmeal to thicken the batter. I also substituted 1/2 soy flour for part of the white flour to add more protein."
"The first batch of waffles that I made from this recipe was awful, but edible, I ended up putting away the leftover batter in the fridge for a couple of hours, then took it out to make some more. There was a definite improvement to the taste."
"This recipe was AWFUL! The batter was too thin....almost like pancake batter."
"These were very bland. I have a Martha Stewart recipe that is much better & not much harder to make."
"YUM says it all. I'm sure I will using this recipe time after time after time .. .. .."
"These waffles are fabulous! I use 1 cup whole wheat flour, 3/4 cup all-purpose. Yummy!"
"These are great!"
"The buttermilk flavor really stands out in these waffles."
