Reviews for Golden Buttermilk Waffles
"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."
