These waffles are for sure quite sweet but I am not surprised if this recipe truly comes straight from Belgium. Europeans don’t eat waffles with maple syrup. Whipped cream and berries are more common. If you plan on serving the waffles with maple syrup then I recommend to cut down on sugar by 1/2 cup. Also, you can combine milk with the flour mix instead, and beat the eggs and butter separately, It is way easier and the consistency turns our great. We all liked the final product and would use the recipe again.

If your waffles didn't come out crispy on the outside, and big and fat then you have done something wrong. This recipe is amazing. You CANNOT taste the baking powder in here. I'm assuming the one poster used 3.5 Tablespoons instead of teaspoons. Cool your melted butter before adding to your milk and egg yolk mixture. I can't possibly imagine the people who are saying their batter was runny, mine was fat and thick as can be. I worried it was too think actually, but they came out amazing. Whisk Dry, whisk wet (minus egg whites which will be whipped) combine and then fold in the egg whites (this folds in air to make the batter fat and thick. . There is NOTHING hard about this recipe, it is absolutely user error if it didn't turn out right. In my haste I forgot to add vanilla to these, and they were still amazing. You don't even need a mixer for this recipe, just fold everything together. Maybe some folks just shouldn't bake.

My go to, make at least once a week to freeze for breakfasts. Not sure about the bad reviews, maybe they need a little guidance? This recipe is truly delicious .I have used a few different waffle makers for it and have found better results with my single waffle maker over my 4 at a time, but SOOOO worth it.

Maybe missed something, but I went back over the recipe and double checked. They didn’t have a very good consistency at! Greasy and not what I was hoping for. I saved them by covering them with cooked spiced apples and whipped. Won’t be saving this or!

After seeing how many reviews and 4 stars this recipe caught my eye. After reading the reviews I decided to try this anyways as it looks like an Ace waffle recipe and most of the 4 or lower star reviews seemed to be the commenters own fault and not that of this recipe. And i was right This is probably the most perfect waffle recipe I've ever tried. 5 stars.

One of the best waffle recipes out their , I found that if you let it stand over night it makes the batter thing and easier to handle

Just made this for a friend for a special birthday celebration breakfast. Topped with fresh strawberries and real maple syrup it was deliciously decadent! Definitely not for everyday as it is rich.

I've been looking for a good Belgian waffle recipe for a long time now and this one is just amazing! The only thing I would add to the recipe is to cool the butter before combining it with the rest of the ingredients. The waffles are fluffy, light, and taste absolutely delicious! Always a winner in my family!

The vanilla and sugar make them delicious, but despite the amount of melted butter in the recipe, they tended to stick in my waffle maker.
