"Perfect waffles. Do not fear the sugar -- it's just right. Do not fear the butter -- awesomeness all the way. Yes, I needed to increase the cooking time. Added about 1:30 to my normal cook time for boxed mix waffles. Made these exactly according to the directions. I have been looking for a good, basic recipe for a few weeks and have tried others. This one is my new go-to. Make them. Eat them. Enjoy the day!"
"The woman said she got them from a family member in Belgian and the Belgian Grandmother said they "tasted like home" so I'm going to trust they are true Belgian waffles. Maybe people in Belgian make waffles different in different families. My grandmother was Polish and had special recipes from her family and I have had the same item from another family and they are different. Also Gabry Rox is talking about the Liege waffles (the super thick kind with the hunks of caramelized sugar). Anyway- I made them and they are excellent. I served them with Strawberries ."
"My son and I just tried this for breakfast; we are not impressed.There is too much sugar in the dough. The sweetness is supposed to come from the toppings in my opinion.I'm a real fan of butter, but 1 cup is too much.And I agree, they do taste like the typical american waffles.We need an old world recipe here. :)"
"All you people complaining about the quantity of butter do realize that butter is what makes these waffles taste as good as they do, right?Too much sugar? Yes, you're waffles will be too sweet when you pour syrup all over em. These waffles with sliced banana/strawberries plus whipped cream are most definitely not too sweet. Try it out instead of the typical syrup topping that people somehow find good.These do have to cook longer than other recipes I've tried and do come out softer, but once they're on the plate and cool off for a minute, the outside hardens up, and they end up very crisp like any other waffle.Awesome, awesome recipe. Best tasting of anything I've found online. I will try one of the Liege waffle recipes next, however, once I get some pearl sugar.Made these using a Waring ProWMK600 found on amazon, using the #4 heat setting."
"There are 2 kinds of waffles in Belgium: the Liegeois which is the yeast dough with pearl sugar, and the Bruxellois which is the light, crispy one. To me, neither are close to what you would get if you order a Belgian Waffle at IHOP, but this recipe sounds like a Bruxellois."
