Reviews for True Belgian Waffles
"I have nothing to compare this to since it was my first time ever making waffles. Slightly horrified at the thought of 2 sticks of butter in 5 servings, I cut the butter in half to 1 stick and slightly less sugar to 1/2 cup vs 3/4. The flavor was perfect for me, just sweet enough. I ate it as is, no added syrup or powdered sugar. I'm a weirdo, I know. Thanks for the recipe, now if only I could figure out the correct amount of batter for each waffle!"
"This is a GREAT recipe! I add fresh fruit to mine like diced apples and blueberries so the fruit is nice and warm and baked in, all I can say is YUM! I also usually double the recipe so that I have plenty extra, these are excellent to have on hand frozen, just pop each waffle square into the toaster and then you have an EXTREMELY easy yummy breakfast on the go. I cook mine for 5 minutes a little higher than light for ones I'm freezing so that they toast up really nice in the toaster without being over done, and they taste like they just came out of the gridlle, AMAZING!"
"Great hunk of goodness. Made these for my wife and 3 children and the plates are licked clean.I made mine and my childrens' with 1 teaspoon of cookie butter on top, then 2 sliced strawberries, and 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream.My wife's had 1/2 banana and a tablespoon of Nutella on top.I enjoyed trying them plain, but I like to throw some life into my waffles (and crepes) by using recipes as mentioned above. I'd also recommend raspberries with lemon curds and caramelized apples/sauce on top with a scoop of ice cream.YUMMY!!!!"
"Excellent waffles - very tasty and lovely texture, syrup optional! Followed the recipe as written."
"These waffles are great, exactly what I was looking for. I had some self rising flour I needed to use up so I used 2 cups of that with a teaspoon of baking powder. They turned out perfect"
