Reviews forSweet Potato Waffles
"My family loves these waffles. I also use 1 teaspoon of Cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of Allspice and 1 teaspoon of pure Vanilla extract. Much more flavor......."
"I had high hopes for this recipe. However, the batter was too thick for waffles and the flavor was sorely lacking. Wont be making this recipe any time soon."
"My whole family loved them. My son and husband do not like sweet potato but they both enjoyed these waffles. I served them with smoked salmon and warm brie."
"My family loved this (kids age 10 & under)! I substituted cinnamon & nutmeg for the cardamom & coconut oil for the butter, and skipped the pecans (my kids like nuts plain, but not usually in things). Turned out great & I'd make them again."
"Very yummy! I used pumpkin in place of sweet potatoes and replaced the cardamon with Cinnamon and Nutmeg. Will defiantly try with sweet potatoes next time!"
"This is definitely tomorrow's breakfast."
"Definitely delicious! We love these!! Make them frequently!"
"Yum!! My family loves them! I often use canned pumpkin instead of sweet potatoes."
"These were very plain tasting. They didn't taste bad, but didn't have much taste at all. I will try a different recipe."
"The batter was very thick. A little complicated for a waffle recipe. I think this recipe would taste even better with dried cranberries instead of pecans."
