  • I've had a waffle iron for about two months. I have tried a different recipe each of the twelve (or so) times I've made waffles for my family. We all agree that these were our favorites so far. I used the batter immediately after I mixed it. I am thrilled at the prospect of being able to make the batter the night before and have them taste even better!

  • Yes! This recipe is just like the "real thing". We live so far away from a waffle house. It's nice to whip the batter up Friday night and have it ready to cook on those crazy family mornings on Saturdays! This is coming from someone who used to work at a waffle house. :)
