This recipe freezes well, and can be doubled,tripled, etc. to suit your needs. I made 80 waffles and froze them for later use. All you need to do then is pop them in the toaster. They are better than the one's at the store!

These waffles aren't bad, they're just nothing special. I added the vanilla as other reviewers suggested and they still tasted slightly bland. Also, this is a dense waffle. If you are looking for something light and fluffy, either keep looking or remember to separate your eggs, beat the egg whites and fold them into the batter.

Very easy to make. Substituting whole wheat flour for half of the regular flour makes them heartier. I make several batches and freeze them for weekdays, since we're all on different schedules. Just pop them in the toaster for a quick hot breakfast.

Mmmmm! These waffles are yummy! I've actually made countless batches of this recipe's waffles before remembering to write a review. Those who have rated this less than 4 stars have either expected more than plain old waffles, or aren't doing something right with the recipe. Adding vanilla and/or cinnamon is a great idea, and depending on our mood, I do so, but without the additives, this doesn't serve me the right to score this recipe any less than what I have. They're just great waffles!

We love these waffles. On a Sunday I make triple the batch of waffles I put egg beater instead of eggs and a cup of ground flex seeds .If I have blueberrys I sprinkle them over the waffle batter before I cook them. If there are any left I freeze them and they eat during the week. They are delicious and very healthy.

Very Very good. I was looking for a recipe that wouldnt' take a long time to make and wasn't a mix. I added 1 tsp of cinnamon and 1 tsp of vanilla. Very good! Thank you

I have made this waffles several times for my family and they love them. The waffles were light and crisp on the outside, I added a little more sugar and vanilla to give it a nice flavor.
