"This recipe was delicious! I also did not have the sour cream and substituted yogurt instead, and it was still wonderful! I added cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice to it, along with vanilla, to add some extra flavor."

"Very satisfying. I add two packets of instant apple and cinnamon oatmeal to the recipe for a little more flavor and texture and I cook them in a Belgin Waffle maker. Because there are only two of us now I cool the waffles on a rack and them put them in a freezer bag. When I'm ready for them, I half them and place in the toaster and I sometimes think they taste even better this way. I always have them on hand for camping or the grandkids with no fuss."

"These waffles are very light and fluffy, i put chicken and gravy on top and they were good, but i would not like them with syrup"

"These were good waffles, but they didn't get crispy on the outside. (Maybe it was a mistake by the cook!) They are very light (texture-wise), though."
