Once I made these light and tasty waffles for my family, they never let me use a prepackaged mix again! For that reason, I usually bake a double batch and freeze the leftovers. Then, on hurried mornings, I just pop them in the toaster for a quick meal.

"In my opinion, these waffles were lacking in flavor. I added some sugar, to improve the taste, but that didn't do much. I think I should have added more (I only added a couple tablespoons)."
