"Surprisingly quite yummy, just a slightly different texture than a traditional waffle. I too added an extra 1/2 cup of all purpose flour, as suggested and didn't have buttermilk so mixed 2 tbsp vinegar and topped up to the 2 cup mark with 2% milk. Also great with cinnamon and/or chocolate chips. Kid approved!"

"better if use 1/2 white all purpose flour and 1/2 whole wheat flour and separate the eggs and whisk egg whites until soft peaks and mix it into the batter last. Then it's yummy!!"

"too thin! I added another cup of white flour. The taste and texture were all right. I served them with a custard sauce and fruit."
