From Use Butter?

Does anyone use butter instead of oil? I was surprised that NO recipes for waffles call for butter. Isn't it supposed to make the waffle crispy and more delicious?

Made these for the first time, and was totally blown away. Easily the best waffle recipe I've tried, and I've tried quite a few.

We've tried them all, and NONE come close to this amazing recipe! It's been a great friend especially on our long Alaska nights when there's nothing else to do except pig out! In fact, it's so good it's actually led to "other things" - However, I don't suggest eating them in bed... too sticky! LOL Simply a Great Recipe!!!

I made these into waffle sandwiches with avsimple egg omelet and bacon strips as the filling. I sprinkled powdered sugar on top and served with warm maple syrup. They received rave reviews. Great recipe! Thank you!

Best waffles ever! The Donkey (Eddie Murphy) on Shrek would be very pleased to belly up to the breakfast table with the Ogre and friends to enjoy some of these fantastic "WAFFLES". They were extra crispy on the outside and fluffy and tender on the inside. I added a teaspoon of vanilla, two shakes of cinnamon, one shake of nutmeg and an extra egg white. Don't over mix either. I served them at a brunch with omelets to order and bloody Marys; the waffles were the talk of the brunch. I thought people were going to pass-out they were so good; the folks raved about them. Serve with melted butter and warm maple syrup and you'll be in waffle heaven:^)

Fantastic tasting waffles - light and crispy on the outside. For our family, we modified it a little and added 3 tbsp of sugar, 2 tsp of vanilla and 1 tbsp of cinnamon - highly recommended!

This waffle recipe is amazing! Better than any other store bought or homemade waffle I have ever made, and I've made quite a few. These are just worth every effort. I leave the dry ingredients pre-mixed and add the eggs in when I'm ready to make them to diminish the work, especially on early mornings.

Amazing recipe! My kids say that they can make the waffles perfectly by saying, "mom, would you make us some waffles please?" I did add vanilla extract and 3 tablespoons of sugar because we prefer them a bit sweeter, but they were PERFECT otherwise. I find vanilla and sugar to be personal preference and add to suit ones own taste. Thank you for this amazing recipe!!!

I made these waffles this morning and they are excellent! Just make sure you add 1 or 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract - otherwise, they'll taste too eggy.

Just made these and the whole family loved them. Best waffles ever, yes! Didn't have vegetable oil so I used coconut oil. Turned out great. Added the vanilla extract and extra tbsp of sugar. Thanks Mr Breakfast man.

The waffle was really good, but the recipe might be a little hard to follow for a less experienced cook.
