Reviews for True Belgian Waffles

"This recipe is pretty good, WITH SOME TWEAKS. I've made these twice now; the first time, I only added 1/2 cup of butter instead of the full cup (as per someone elses' review). They were a huge hit! They were thick, fluffy, and sweet. Perfect with or without syrup, and easy to get crispy in the toaster oven when reheating!The second time, I made them exactly how the recipe says (with the full cup of butter), and they were awful. Floppy, soggy, and impossible to get crisp on the outside. I have a waffle iron that has different temperature settings; I tried cooking them fast on a high heat, and cooking them slow, and both times they were either golden brown and too soggy to get out of the iron, or burnt. I had noticed when I was making them that the batter had a much puffier consistency than the last time I had made them, when it was very smooth. So, after only using about a half cup of the batter, I added a half cup of flour-- and viola! they perked right up. Not as good as the first batch with only a half cup of butter, but still good.I think next time I make them, I'll only do 1 1/2 cups of butter!"
"I've never had a true Belgian waffle, so I can't comment on that. So, from an American standpoint, these are too sweet -- no syrup needed. Would be good for dessert. I'll keep looking for a more plain-tasting waffle, but will make these again.The other reviews are right. Its 1 stick of butter."
"Awful recipe. They had no taste and were very chewy. Definitely sticking to box waffles for now on."
"I’m so happy I discovered your website!You are awesome!I made this recipe today and I really love this. Absolutely divine!"
"Perhaps I did something wrong but these came out horrible! All of my waffles were too foppy and not at all firm and ended up falling apart when I tried to take them out. They also had way to much butter."
