    Great, but I have family that likes a "yeasty" taste, so I added a tablespoon of dried active yeast and a tablesspoon of Sugar to the eggs, buttermilk and oil and let sit for 5 minutes. Gives a very distinctive taste for those wanting the bling of yeast taste.

    I made this for Christmas brunch using my new waffle maker, and they were very tasty. I added a couple tablespoon of granulated sugar and a tsp. of vanilla to the mix. The waffles were beautiful and perfectly golden brown.

    These came out very crisp and delicious. Will definitely make these again. Followed recipe exactly, except I cut it in half and only got 3 waffles when using a Belgian waffle maker.

    They browned up beautifully, l added 1 T of sugar to help with that. A very nice waffle. Janet VFE

    I did similar modifications as other reviewers.. I exchanged butter for the oil and added a tsp of vanilla. They turned out light and fluffy. I think if this recipe already had the vanilla I would have given it five stars.

    It's a simple base recipe, though I ended up exchanging butter for oil, adding a little sugar and vanilla.

    Not bad. These are the only waffles I have made that are actually crispy. Only complaint, they smell and somewhat taste like fish. It likely is the canola oil. I'll find a substitute to use for next time.I used a Belgian waffle maker. Great texture.Edit: tried with coconut oil. Less fishy, but no flavor. I even tried adding sugar and vanilla but it didn't help. If someone can find a way to add taste to this texture, they would be great.

    This was terrific. I read the 'coffeeandcake' review and was hooked. I also added vanilla and more buttermilk, but went overboard and put in small pieces of pineapple. It was fabulous!

    Delicious! I used whole wheat instead of all purpose flour & butter instead of oil - fabulous!
