I should have read the reviews before making these. Way too much sugar, way too much butter, and adding melted better to cold milk creates a half solidified mess. All the sugar made the waffles burn easily on the outside while not being cooked on the inside. Skip this recipe.

This is the BEST waffle recipe I’ve ever had/tried! I make it every week. My question is this: I want to double it so I have more batter, but I’m wondering how long will it live in the fridge before it goes bad? Like if I make some Thursday, will it be good on Saturday? Thank you!??

This is a great recipe and they taste great. I have read a lot of the negative posts so, as a culinary arts major and a Bachelors degree in food science, I did some experimenting. If you use a standard waffle iron, they do come out a little mushy and a lot of the batter is pushed out. Other than that, all was well. So, for all you haters out there, I would suggest you go out a purchase a true Belgium Waffle Iron and you will enjoy crispy and tasty waffles. If you choose not to buy the proper waffle iron....shut up and quit being hateful little snobs. I have a library of cookbooks and baking books and this recipe is in my top 2 favorite ones for waffles. I have enjoyed these every Super Bowl the last few years as this is a family tradition and many times for weekend breakfasts, with bacon of course, but I am sure you haters probably don’t like bacon either and will find something wrong with it as well.

I made these for my brother-in-law's birthday breakfast and everyone loved them. I, however, thought they were too sweet. I questioned the amount of butter also, but they tasted good and had a good texture. I will definitely make them again, but I will lessen the sugar.

I've made this recipe dozens of times and they've turned out excellent! Great consistency, crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside. Not greasy at all. However, it is true that they are very sweet, but I reduce the amount of sugar to around 1/2 cup on days where I'm not feeling like overly sweet stuff. I highly recommend using salted butter for the batter and for oiling the waffle iron. If you follow the recipe to the T, then avoid using sweet toppings. Use things like sour raspberries or strawberries with whipped cream that isnt too sweet along with a glass of orange juice or something. or just eat it alone.

These are gross. They are so heavy with butter they feel greasy in your mouth. I ate one waffle and it was too much.

Too sweet for me! If you cut the sugar to 1/4 cup, they would taste better.
