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

"Love the recipe used Coconut Vanilla milk and it was great. Can't have syrup so the sweet waffle work for me. Little work but great taste."

"I tried this recipe a couple weeks ago. I wanted to try a different waffle recipe instead of the one I always use. This recipe looked and tasted better than my usual one. I followed the recipe exactly and didn't expect them to turn out this good. The waffles were crispy on the edges and soft on the inside. The whole house smelled like I was baking cookies. I will definitely be making them again. Being part Belgian myself, I was very impressed with this recipe."

"Made these tonight! Yum. The butter in the recipe seems extreme, but it's the key. And to the comment about being too salty, make sure you use unsalted butter. I used one salted and one unsalted as a personal preference to cut the sweet. I also cut it to 1/2 cup white sugar and added 1/4 brown sugar, because it's just what I do. They are marvelous and not brown and gross, unless it's because I have a cheap-o waffle iron..."
