It was on a visit to my husband's relatives in Belgium that I was given this recipe. Back in the U.S., I served the waffles to his Belgian-born grandmother. She said they tasted just like home. Our grandkids love these waffles with any kind of topping: blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, fried apples, powdered sugar or whipped topping. —Rose Delemeester, St. Charles, Michigan

"These waffles are great. However, I did change a few things. I used two cups low fat buttermilk, 1/4 cup sugar, and 1/2 cup butter. The batter was nice and thick and the waffles cooked perfectly. They were nice and crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside."

"Has anyone tried this w fresh fruit in the batter. They r still great plain. Eat them hot w icecream in the middle of 2 waffles And a little dusting of powder sugar. Awesome desert idea. I let my batter sit for 20minutes before I put them on the waffle iron. It seems to make them a lil more crisp"

"Loved your recipe! I toned down on the sugar because i prefer maple syrup anyway and added cinnamon to it and it was divine! This is my first time making waffles and i don't think i'm going to even try any other waffle recipe!"
