"Excellent recipe for outstanding waffles. I usually make 1/2 a recipe; the way you figure out 1/2 of 3 eggs is to use the following; 1 egg white = 2Tb, 1 egg yolk = 1 Tb. So for half a recipe, use 3 Tb egg white and 1 1/2 Tb egg yolks. I have used dark brown sugar for this recipe and it comes out just fine. The original recipe calls for the scrapings of 1 vanilla bean-I use vanilla extract. And the original recipes calls for buttering the waffle iron; I use Pam non-stick spray for my waffle iron."

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I love waffles and these are excellent. Crispy on the outside, light and tender and full of flavor on the inside, just the way I want them. These waffles were wonderful served with some soft butter and a little icing sugar. Love the hint of spice. Thank you for sharing a recipe which will be enjoyed often. Also a big thank you to Nat for recommending this lovely recipe. Made for Best of 2016.

These waffles are excellent! They are full of flavor and came out crispy on the outside and tender within. We added strawberries as I had some that needed to be used up. There is nothing not to like about this keeper recipe! Thank you natsgarden for sharing:) Made it for Pick Me tag game.
