"My family LOVED these! My very picky seven year old ate five and told me not to lose the recipe! They smell so good when the're cooking. Wondering if I should add a splash of vanilla. :-)"

"Really yummy and yet not sweet. I had to add some flour to the batter in the morning because it was a little runny for my liking. But an easy enough fix!"

"This is a good tasting and filling waffle. The yeast gives it a hint of something home-made and not from a mix. I will definately make this often."
