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

"I don't know how anyone could have messed these up! If you're waffle iron was left with a bunch of grease .... THEN THE PROBLEM WAS WITH YOU AND NOT THE RECIPE! These were undeniably delicious and fluffy!"

"I joined just so i could review the recipe.... These waffles are horrible. Belgian grandma is senile. A cup of butter??! Disgusting. The waffle iron was left with a bunch of grease from all the butter and they burned because of all the fat."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 8, 2015

"I read the reviews after I had already made the batter so I was a little skeptical about these waffles. I don;t know if other people made them incorrectly but, these are some good waffles. Granted, I have a belgium friend who makes her waffles and they are better but, these are still delicious. I followed the recipe the way it was."

MY REVIEW

"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."
