Reviews for True Belgian Waffles
"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."
"This recipe is great! I was intrigued because of the wide range of reviews, but I had no problems at all. Tasted great, no mess, a winner. I am always amazed at how being able to leave reviews anonymously makes some people so mean. If you don't like a recipe, so be it. Other people did, maybe you did something wrong. Or maybe it's just not your taste. Or you changed the recipe. Or maybe you are used to boxed and frozen waffles. But be polite. State what went wrong, and why you did not like it. Review fairly. And most of all, prepare the recipe as written."
"WHAT A HORRIBLE WASTE OF INGREDIENTS AND TIME. DON'T EVEN MAKE BECAUSE YOU WILL WASTE 2 WHOLE CUPS OF FLOUR AND A WHOLE CUP OF BUTTER. SO UPSET, THANK YOU FOR SUCH A HORRIBLE RECIPE. SOME OF YOU ALL MAY NOT BE BROKE BUT I AM AND I DON'T HAVE MONEY TO JUST THROW AWAY LIKE THIS, UGH."
"I made this recipe and they came out great... Then a few hours later I opened the microwave and the butter I was melting was still in there. Oops! I used white whole wheat flour and accidently omitted a whole cup of butter so I guess I was being health conscious. Honestly, couldn't tell anything was missing. They came out really well and fluffed up nicely."
"If the idea of a cloying, rotten-egg-smelling, grease-covered waffle sounds nice to you, then you might enjoy these. But I am not that kind of person. TOO MUCH SUGAR & BUTTER! You try and convince yourself that they will taste nice (because they look good), but upon biting into them, an immediate sense of regret floods body, as you try not to dry heave too heavily. These are perfect if you are looking for a torture instrument, but rubbish if you don't want to spend the night in a semi-comatose, nauseous state with a bowl to your side (just in case)."
