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 was excited to make this recipe although at first glance I thought it called for WAY too much butter. Sure enough after making two waffles, they were greasy and flat. So not wanting to waste anything I doubled the recipe but did not add anymore butter. They came out ok but still seemed too flat. But as the recipe stands, it is calling for too much butter. One cup of butter is equal to two sticks!

These waffles are the best I have ever tasted! I am discarding my old tried and true recipe for this one. I noticed that many of the poor reviews are from people who altered the recipe by adding extra eggs, or milk, or reducing butter and sugar etc. In this case the poor rating belongs to your altered version and it isn't fair to the original. I always try a recipe as is first, following it step by step and then alter it to my likes the next go round if the original wasn't up to par. The next time I make this one I might reduce the sugar if we are using syrup and keep it as is if using fruit or cream cheese.
