It was on a visit to my husband's relatives in Europe that I was given this Belgian waffle recipe. These homemade waffles are great with any kind of topping: blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, fried apples, powdered sugar or whipped topping. —Rose Delemeester, St. Charles, Michigan

"I love this recipe. Stationed in Germany we had the opportunity to visit Belgium on weekends and enjoy Belgium waffles frequently. I did tweak this though because I am a health nut and now my husband says my waffles are better than Waffle House. I replace 2 C flour with 1C organic white flour and 1C wheat (sift together) with brown sugar vs white and the baking soda. My eggs are at room temp and I melt my 1 stick of unsalted and 1 stick of salted butter 1st so it is not hot when I add all the wet ingredients together. The waffles come out so fluffy and light. I just started adding chopped pecans to the batter. Thanks for sharing this. They have become a standard Saturday morning breakfast. I also make enough to freeze. They are wonderful when popped in the toaster or reheated in the oven."

"I'm thankful for the recipe I was able to improvise enough to make it work but it didnt fit the bill for me as a busy mom of am infant and 2 toddlers.

Bradley, what you said about the cold milk and butter was right on. I had to reheat.
I also didnt like the format of how the recipe reads on the site. To have to click back and forth from ingredients to directioms was a pain.
Ultimately, each waffle took 10 mins to make, on my iron, which made for over an hour for me.
Bradley, please advise me of a good belgian waffle recipe?
Thank you"

"This was a great recipe I couldn't find grammas an came across this one due to saying true. Mirisse I hope u get to see my pics. Of course I always have mixed dry and wet melted my butter 1/2 way down an peeked my eggs. Since I doubled the recipe I did hand mix the premixed wet ingredients into the dry ones. Then folded in the peeks. Used my professional waffle flipper. ?? It did have the slighest bitterness. But once I put the strawberries and homemade whipped cream with cinnamon sprinkled on top. Of course Real Maple syrup. You couldn't tell."

"DON'T FOLLOW THIS RECIPE

I've been making waffles and pancakes at least once a week since a decade. I've tried numerous recipes, I've also improvised. Some turned out wonderful, while others were failures. And when I suggest to you to NOT FOLLOW THIS RECIPE, it's not because I have developed high standards and refined taste buds. It's simply because looking at this recipe, I know the waffles will be bitter.
3 teaspoons of baking powder, really? Might as well use a whole pack of baking soda. Adding 1 1/2 cup of cold milk to your melted butter? Might as well reheat your newly formed clump of egg yolked butter nuggets.
Some of the comments left below are from users that rated every single recipe 5 stars. I thought I would create an account to inform you of this fact."

"Very nice. I followed the recipe exactly except that I was short on time so I beat the eggs a little unseparated and hoped for the best. Waffles were still fluffy and very nice. We did not find them too sweet, but I did use less syrup then i normally would since I was expecting some sweetness to be built in. We also didn't add any butter to the waffles before eating since I figured it was already in the batter. The kids loved them and it was a great chance to try out our new waffle maker."

"While the batter is truly delicious, this recipe has so much butter in relation to the other ingredients that it would not cook in our professional waffle maker. In fact, it was far too watery for the waffle maker, and typically Belgian waffle batter is sticky and much thicker than this. Again, the taste is terrific, if you can figure out a way to cook it. I had to turn it into pancakes in a frying pan, and they were literally dripping with butter. I triple checked measurements to make sure I was staying exactly to the recipe. Not sure if others had a similar experience..."
