My family loved these! The waffles were gobbled up in about three minutes flat and the kids asked for seconds! I¿ve been using a Bob¿s Red Mill mix and this recipe blew the mix out of the water. I used canola oil instead of butter and added flax seed, cinnamon, a touch of nutmeg, and cut the sugar back by 1/2 tbsp. They are super-crispy due to the high oil content. Will definitely use this recipe again.

I have been making waffles for 50 years, using this very basic, never fail recipe! The only difference, separate the eggs. Mix yolks with all other liquids, whip the whites to soft peaks. After mixing wet and dry, FOLD in the whites. This step makes a big difference! Now, 40 years in I must use dairy substitute. Have you tried, coffee flour? I love it, especially when adding molasses to the recipe. The only place I can find coffee flour is the bulk section at Sprouts! Have fun...Be adventurous!!raf Happy Holidays!!!

This is a great recipe! It¿s crunchy on the outside but soft in the inside. We ate it with ice cream and strawberries. Delicious!

I love this recipe for waffles. I have used it for many years from my BHG recipe book my mom gave me. I thought I'd download it off the internet and was happy to find it since my pages are sticking together in my recipe book now!  I use a hand mixer to fluff up the eggs and milk and then add the dry ingredients. I also use evaporated milk.  I give a couple of shakes of cinnamon in the batter and WOW. Best waffles ever.
