"I grew up in Belgium!Trust me it does not come near ANYTHING like Belgian Waffles! Not even close!"
"My results of this recipe was not to my liking. They were way too sweet, and were not crispy like Belgium waffles I have ever had. I will look for another recipe."
"Perfect waffles. Do not fear the sugar -- it's just right. Do not fear the butter -- awesomeness all the way. Yes, I needed to increase the cooking time. Added about 1:30 to my normal cook time for boxed mix waffles. Made these exactly according to the directions. I have been looking for a good, basic recipe for a few weeks and have tried others. This one is my new go-to. Make them. Eat them. Enjoy the day!"
"The woman said she got them from a family member in Belgian and the Belgian Grandmother said they "tasted like home" so I'm going to trust they are true Belgian waffles. Maybe people in Belgian make waffles different in different families. My grandmother was Polish and had special recipes from her family and I have had the same item from another family and they are different. Also Gabry Rox is talking about the Liege waffles (the super thick kind with the hunks of caramelized sugar). Anyway- I made them and they are excellent. I served them with Strawberries ."
"My son and I just tried this for breakfast; we are not impressed.There is too much sugar in the dough. The sweetness is supposed to come from the toppings in my opinion.I'm a real fan of butter, but 1 cup is too much.And I agree, they do taste like the typical american waffles.We need an old world recipe here. :)"
