"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!"

"Made these waffles in my mom's 50+ year old Sunbeam waffle maker for Christmas breakfast and they were crispy and light with great flavor. I used more buttermilk - thought the batter was too thick - and added some vanilla. Much better than the boxed mix that I usually use."

"These were delicious. One small change: I didn't have enough buttermilk, so I added about 2 tablespoons of Coffeemate Vanilla Caramel coffee creamer to make up the difference. Just the lightest hint of vanilla-caramel. My brother, though, said they tasted like marshmallows. They were yummy just the same! Thanks for sharing the recipe!"

"This recipe was very delightful and easy to make. We had lots of buttermilk left and I thought this recipe would be great to use it up. We used some of the waffles to have with icecream and the rest we saved for Mother's Day breakfast. Very tasty and fluffy."

"I had leftover buttermilk and looked for something to do with it when I found this recipe, we tried it because it used all the buttermilk we had left. We have been making it ever since. The four kids love these waffles and without adding sugar they will regularly eat the leftovers cold and without anything on them. They like it when I use almond extract instead of vanilla also, so we alternate. We use 1 cup of whole wheat spelt flour in place of regular, it adds a nice, nutty taste. These are a staple in our house, I have tried other recipes like gingerbread waffles, etc, and they prefer this recipe."

"The first batch of waffles that I made from this recipe was awful, but edible, I ended up putting away the leftover batter in the fridge for a couple of hours, then took it out to make some more. There was a definite improvement to the taste."
