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.

Too much butter Which did not mix well with cold milk so I had to put it in the microwave to melt again. There isn’t much taste either

Anyone who says this recipe doesn't work is crazy. I searched for a long time for a legitimate Belgian waffle recipe. They get perfect Everytime. I wish I could personally thank the creator of the recipe. A good waffle iron is also critical hence the Waring we use.
