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.

Common people. Use common sense. Does it say mix cold milk with hot melted butter. Try to actually be present when your following a recipe and if everyone else is giving it 5 stars, it's probably a user error. Ridiculous. Anyway this recipe is amazing. I've made it several times and it never disappoints to deliver that buttery crispy sweetness that you can normally only get from fancy wafers. Thank you for sharing!

I have followed the recipe exactly and can almost guarantee that this is not what you are looking for. It is bitter, not crunchy and way too sweet. Horrible aftertaste from all that baking powder!!!. Mix cold milk and melted butter, seriously??

Perfect recipe: crispy outside...cause of all that sugar and nice and soft inside...cause of all that butter! Not for every day, but definitely for special occasions! My family loved them! Serve with mix of berries and topped with whipped cream!
