i just finished eating them. they were OK, i saw that some people gave it 1 star reveiws so had to see the truth for myself. They were kinda dry, and stuck to the iron a little. They definetly werent easy to make. i think that aunt jemimah waffles taste better though. I probably wont make them again without modifying the recipe.

Not good waffles----- runny mess with little flavor, not worth the effort

More challenging to make than your traditional waffle, but definitely worth the work. I also had problems with the waffles sticking to the iron, though. Any ideas for preventing this? I brushed the iron with oil between each set of waffles. Still, I think they're worth the extra work and bother.

Luckily I read the reviews before I made this. I really think the cornstarch is supposed to be CORNMEAL. That is what I used. I also added about a half cup more of flour to thicken up the batter. Waffles were still kind of bland

This recipe is good, but I hate to say not the best. It is your basic waffle recipe, only a bit more cornstarch than most recipes... but the flavor didn't seem to be affected by it. It is best for the occasion when you're making a special topping for them :)

1/2 cup're kidding me. It amazes me how a recipe can have such opposing reviews. There are much easier, tastier waffle recipes on this website. Unless you love the taste of cornstarch and flour.

Too much vanilla. Had a floury, cornstarchy taste to them.
