Reviews for True Belgian Waffles
"These were really delicious. My husband and I both think they taste like a doughnut. Syrup is totally optional because they are so sweet. Paired with strawberries, they are really amazing. I think the waffle iron you use is important. We have a very nice Cuisinart waffle iron that set us back about $200, which shows our love for the homemade waffle. The only recipe I will use from now on, no adjustments made..."
"wayyyy too sweet! Me and my kids hated it. the waffles were very soggy and they left a lot of grease on the waffle iron. Waste of time, waste of money, this makes me want to cry honestly. these are nothing close to ?rue" Belgian Waffles. very disappointed. Not to mention these gave me head aches im going to call the police on you.. putting my babies at risk what type of human are you"
"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!!!!"
