I was feeling lazy and didn't separate the egg whites from the yolks - also, I didn't have buttermilk, and once again, feeling lazy, didn't feel like making the substitute, so I used 2% milk instead. The waffles STILL came out delicious - this has been the best tasting recipe that I've tried since getting the waffle iron - and we've tried several different recipes.


As someone who grew up on Belgian Waffles (mostly Bisquick) I have to say this is most definately a 5-star recipe. ***** I whipped the egg whites first (used my KitchenAid mixer the whole time), that way I could use the same bowl to mix everything in after I took the whites out. I used SmartBalance spread instead of butter and upped the cinnamon to 1 tsp or so. I also used instant buttermilk powder & water. **** I have a giant waffle maker that makes 4 large Belgian waffle squares at one time. I was leary about the original yield of this recipe...only 3? Who eats only 3 waffles in a family? This recipe yeilded 8 big fat squares, not just 3. Being pregnant, I ate 4 squares and my daughters each ate 3 between them...with 1 left for my hubby when he gets home. lol! **** Anyway, this is a superb recipe. Make sure to mix the egg whites in very well (gently). Finding large egg white clumps is not the most pleasant experience.

I doubled this recipe. I used "soured" milk and I upped the baking powder to three teaspoons. Also, my "pinch" of cinnamon is probably bigger than your average pinch would be. Other than that, I kept to the recipe. Out of a doubled recipe, I got 12 full sized regular waffles (and that means that I used one of those four-count basic wafflemaker and none of them were cheated out of batter). These waffles were crisp on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. I served these with Absolute Best Pancake Syrup, which is also on this site. This was one of the top waffle recipes I've tried from this site, I think the buttermilk and the touch of cinnamon make this recipe.
