From Great Waffles
I've made this recipe several times They are crispy on the outside and light, as I do not like hard, heavy waffles. I do sprinkle chopped pecans on top of the batter just before closing the lid. Have not found another recipe to beat it.

I have made this recipe several times and get raves every time. They are light and crisp - melt in your mouth. The only thing I add to the batter is pecans.

This recipe is fantastic. I have tried several waffle recipes and this one is top of the line. The taste is excellent and will make again. I used olive oil for salad oil. Thanks again.

Salad oil? Does that mean vegetable oil? Sounds like it could mean olive oil but that seems a little weird for a waffle? And as I'm writing this, I see one of the comments where somebody used canola oil. So uh... never mind. Question answered. Thanks!

This must be an old recipe... who says salad oil anymore... I used canola oil. Good results. Good texture. Next time, add some vanilla or almond extract.

These are SO good!!! Remember to put your waffle maker on a low setting or it will burn. I also added about a half cup of flour because it seemed a bit thin.

Yeah I'm also don't have waffle maker... is it possible just to cook it like pancake?

After reading several reviews about the batter being thin, I decided to use only 1 cup of buttermilk and I added 1 cup of frozen blueberries. Came out pretty good.

From Family Approved
My family of 5 liked this! I added a dash of cinnamon and substituted whole wheat flour for 1/2 cup of the flour. It worked great in my Belgian waffle maker.

Not very tasteful, bland. Very thin batter, easy recipe but would not make again.
