Reviews for True Belgian Waffles
"Just made these for some friends visiting from France. They loved them. Did not change anything in the recipe."
"This recipe works best on a belgian waffle iron. I made my old recipe on my belgian iron and it was heavy. I, also, worried about the butter, but it came out fine. They were not greasy, nor runny. It might not be the right kind of waffle iron, because this is a great recipe."
"These waffles are very tasty and delicious!"
"these were delicious! I used 3oz stork biscuits and pastry and 1oz butter (1/2 cup) as thats all I had. I had read the other reviews too to eliminate half the butter and I was glad i did. I also just used one cup of milk. They were lovely and fluffy on the low seeting but they crisped up nicely on the high setting!"
"I should have followed my mind and eliminated 1/2 the butter. This was not a good recipe at all. The flavor was ok, but the waffles were too mushy. A big disappointment."
"We have made these several times and they are fantastic! I used 1/2 cup of sugar and added 1/4 cup of cornstarch. They are soft inside and crispy on the outside. Perfect amount of sweet. Thank you for the recipe."
"These were soggy and gross. Way too sweet and way too much oil. SO greasy... They were disgusting. Worst waffle recipe for sure"
"Soft inside with a slightly crispy outside. This is the best waffle recipe I've ever made!"
"I made the recipe as is and they're just like I remembered! I spent four years of my childhood in Germany and these taste JUST like the Belgian waffles I used to get from the bakery in the grocery store. No need for syrup because they're perfect. They're supposed to be sweet and slightly soggy! SOOO good!"
"I really enjoy good waffles and these are the best that I have ever tasted! They have just the right amount of crunch on the outside and tender and sweet on the inside. With these, PLEASE do not add syrup until you taste them! They are plenty sweet to eat without any added condiments.But my favorite way to eat them is with vanilla ice cream and fresh strawberries on top. What a great breakfast!"
