These waffles were wonderful! My whole family loved them. Just so you know, each serving is three waffles. I was surprised by how many waffles this recipe made.

This was nothing special, rather bland and doughy. I feel like the pecans should go in the batter rather than on top. Probably won't make again.

Wonderful waffles! I added 1/2 tsp vanilla and liked them even more.

First, I scaled the recipe down to 2. I got 7 square belgian-sized waffles (my machine is about 10 years old, so they may be smaller than those today). I followed the recipe as stated except for adding a dash of cinnamon. After cooking the first 2, I spotted oranges on the counter and thought that might be a nice addition. Squeezed 1/2 orange juice and zested a small about and put in the rest of the batter. This is a more time consuming recipe than many others. I think I would use this only on the weekends when it wasn't so early in the morning getting the kids ready for school! They smelled good and were somewhat dense.

This is a delicious waffle recipe - I followed the advice of some reviewers, and used 1 1/4 cup of flour and reduced the pecan amount to 1/3 cup (that was plenty). I added 1 tbsp of maple syrup to the batter, and as other reviewers suggested stirred the pecans into the batter. I used only 1/4 cup melted margarine (and omitted the oil altogether). Super flavoured waffles, which I'll make again.

In a rush when I made these, so didn't separate the eggs - just whisked them with the buttermilk. Also followed several reviewers suggestions and added the pecans to the batter. These turned out fluffy and delicious - thanks for a great recipe!

I sliced up bananas and then had a variety ingredients to add including pecans, walnuts, chocolate chips and cinnimon chips and everyone could choose what they wanted and we all loved them! The only complaint was we should have had whipped cream too.

I replaced part of the flour with whole wheat flour and would do that again. I replaced all of the oil with applesauce and would do that again too. I did not have pecans (oops) so I made up the nuts section with a combination of sliced almonds and raw oats. We enjoyed these very much! I added a bit of extra sugar and also some vanilla. They still weren't quite sweet enough on their own but with toppings, they're delicious :) The step where I was supposed to whip the egg whites--I forgot to whip them and just folded them in at the end. I don't know how it would have affected them--mine were light & fluffy anyway.
