"I just made these and have had the real thing in Belgium. These need more sugar and more vanilla. Next time I will increase both. THey are too bland as they are. But the texture is about right. THey are also pretty dry, however I made them with wheat flour. The kind of flour might make a difference, don't know."
"These are, by far, the best waffles I have ever made. They are so light and fluffy and sweet; you don't even need syrup. Definitely a keeper in my book!"
"Oops guess I didn't read right... butter is mentioned in the method. Seems like a lot of butter in 2 cups of flour. Will give it a try in the morning!"
"Love this recipe! Takes me back to Saturday mornings as a kid.. I second the comment adding a bit of cinnamon into the mix.. about a half tsp at best. also, at the last minute i sliced up one & a half bananas then used an egg beater to smoothly integrate that added element into the mix. won't say adding bananas will make this any healthy for those counting calories but it gives them some added flavor & tastes phenomenal."
"Great recipe! I substituted the cup of butter to 1/2 cup applesauce plus one tablespoon of butter and a little veg oil. Worked great. The trick, I suspect, is that I do have a greased commercial waffle iron."
