It was on a visit to my husband's relatives in Belgium that I was given this waffle 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

"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 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."

"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!"
