"Well, the rest of the recipe is good, I suggest using half a cup of melted butter, it makes the batter a little thinner, and takes much shorter to cook. Also, beat the egg whites until soft stiff peaks form, it's much easier. but a great recipe overall."
"These waffles, if you are used to a typical American waffle, will scare you. There is SO much butter and sugar, the batter is super thick, they take forever to cook, and they come out of the iron pretty limp. However, they are delicious if you follow the recipe, and they're the first waffles I've ever made that get crispier the longer they sit out. No more soggy waffles at the bottom of the stack! They are also much more filling than you'd expect from waffles. When I make this again, I might lower the ratio of butter in the recipe like some have suggested, but overall this makes a good, and very indulgent, waffle!"
"These were the best! Crispy, sweet, and perfect just by themselves. My only complaint was with my expensive Belgian waffle iron that I received as a birthday gift. It didn't cook evenly and I ended up throwing 2 full sets away before I pulled out my 23 year old Mickey Mouse waffle iron that I receieved as a wedding gift. Mickey didn't let me down! The waffles turned out perfectly."
"So, I too, made an account just to review this recipe. They were great waffles. The amount of sugar and butter are higher than most recipes I seen, but the taste was great. Perfect balance of sweet and richness. If reviewers did not like this recipe it's because they must have messed up somewhere. Maybe didn't beat whites till stiff peaks? They aren't the usual soft and fluffy American style, which I don't really like, but rather these are thinner crispy yet delicate Belgium style. Great waffles. Note: make sure egg whites are beaten till stiff peaks and dont add to much to iron."
"These are the best waffles I've ever had, anywhere! Light, flavorful, & easy to make! They're even good plain, which is how I ate them because they were soooo good!"
