Reviews for True Belgian Waffles
"I'm really no chef at all and get laughed at by my maid when she sees me attempting anything in the kitchen. But, following this recipe yielded delicious waffles. They were absolutely what I was hoping for. I give it 4 stars however because I find this recipe to be a particularly expensive one. One entire cup of butter could have been put to multiple other uses. However, I don't regret trying it. I hope you guys get the same amazing results I did."
"I never criticize a recipe ... however I will make an exception this time. I would have given it 0 stars. The only positive? ...Good taste. Now for the bad, if you like a soggy limp waffle then this is the waffle for you!!! Ingredient's cost for end product is very disappointing.If you are looking for a great waffle recipe here it is:Light 'n Crisp Waffles2 egg yolks1/2 tsp salt2 cups milk1/3 cup oil2 cups all-purpose flour2 egg whites, stiffly beaten1 tbsp baking powderDirectionsPreheat waffle maker.Put all ingredients, except egg whites, in a large mixer bowl. Beat on low until moistened.Increase to medium, mix until smooth.By hand, gently fold in beaten egg whites.Pour 1/2 cup (125 ml) batter over grids. Close waffle maker, bake until steam no longer escapes, about 3-5 minutes. Repeat."
"I should have followed my instinct and reduced the amount of butter. The waffles per this recipe with one cup of melted butter were heavy and oily. I prefer a lighter waffle with a slight crisp on the exterior. Next time I will start with 1/4 cup of melted butter."
"Absolutely Delicious. easy to make and tasty. Not sure why there are bad reviews....? Maybe they just forgot an ingredient?"
"I found this exact recipe in an old cook book, THE CULINARY ARTS COOK BOOK my mom gave to me from a long time ago. The waffles came out flat and I am using new baking powder. I am going to keep looking. There is nothing Belgian about these waffles."
"I followed the recipe exactly. Was so excited to use our new waffle maker. They came out delicious! Definitely not an item to eat often as there's 2 sticks of butter, and quite a bit of sugar. Can't wait to make them for company!"
"This is the best waffle recipe I've found. I only used one third of the sugar because I prefer less sweet. I have a large waffle maker and I got six."
"These were perfect. Our children loved them and they cooked so nicely! There were no left overs! Here is our full review http://www.nickandalonakitchen.com/2017/01/belgian-waffles.html"
"Very good recipe. Next time I will cut back on the sugar. Just a little too sweet."
"I have used this recipe many times and my waffles have turned out fluffy and delicious. I admit, I use a little less butter and sugar than called for to lessen the richness, but have loved the results every time. I also agree with Karen, no need to be so harsh...feedback to help others attain perfect results for their efforts is great, but beating up the creator of the recipe is just mean."
