Reviews for Sweet Potato Waffles
"My family loves these waffles. I also use 1 teaspoon of Cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of Allspice and 1 teaspoon of pure Vanilla extract. Much more flavor......."
"I had high hopes for this recipe. However, the batter was too thick for waffles and the flavor was sorely lacking. Wont be making this recipe any time soon."
"My whole family loved them. My son and husband do not like sweet potato but they both enjoyed these waffles. I served them with smoked salmon and warm brie."
"My family loved this (kids age 10 & under)! I substituted cinnamon & nutmeg for the cardamom & coconut oil for the butter, and skipped the pecans (my kids like nuts plain, but not usually in things). Turned out great & I'd make them again."
"Very yummy! I used pumpkin in place of sweet potatoes and replaced the cardamon with Cinnamon and Nutmeg. Will defiantly try with sweet potatoes next time!"
