"These were amazing! The aroma, while cooking, definitely made me think of fall and the good foods we all enjoy at this time of year. This will definitely be a keeper at my house. I really appreciate that these can be frozen and reheated in the toaster on a busy morning. Thank you, James, for sharing this wonderful recipe with TOH readers."

"I added extra eggs to the recipe, because one seemed to be too little. Perhaps that threw off the quantities, but something seemed wrong--the waffles were quite tough."

"to redo it I would separate the egg and add one more egg white, then beat the egg white and fold in after the rest of the ingredients. It was just too heavy"

"These were alright, seemed to be missing something...maybe need some additional spice...not sure. My family spread a little peanut butter over the top, drizzled a little maple syrup, and then I sprinkled some additional cinnamon on top and they were better that way. Would maybe make again...but would have to put my finger on what is missing from the recipe."

"I made a double batch hoping to freeze several - but these were so popular there were only a few leftover. I did end up adding about 1 T sugar/batch to really bring out the flavor of the spices."
