True Belgian Waffles Recipe

Publisher Photo
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

"This recipe was awful. Don't use it. Our waffles are disgusting and brown."

"Absolutely delightful. Didn't change one thing about this recipe! Since I'm the only one who eats waffles in my home I froze the remaining batter. Will continue to use this recipe."

"This recipe has severe misprint. It calls for a cup of butter (2 full sticks) melted and added to milk and vanilla then added to flour, sugar and baking powder. The results were terrible!! It tasted as if I dumped an entire salt shaker into mix. And the waffles would not EVER turn crispy. Highly recommend Taste of Home review this recipe and get it right. Yuk! Way, way too salty!!"
