  1. Preheat your waffle iron.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla, buttermilk and butter until well blended. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt and cinnamon; stir into the buttermilk mixture. In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites with an electric mixer until stiff. Fold into the batter.
  3. Spoon batter onto the hot waffle iron, close, and cook until golden brown. Waffles are usually done when the steam subsides.

I was feeling lazy and didn't separate the egg whites from the yolks - also, I didn't have buttermilk, and once again, feeling lazy, didn't feel like making the substitute, so I used 2% milk instead. The waffles STILL came out delicious - this has been the best tasting recipe that I've tried since getting the waffle iron - and we've tried several different recipes.

I was actually very dissapointed with this recipe- it's not that it didn't taste good- as far as home made waffles go it's ok- but I usually make whole grain waffles with a quarter of the fat and healthy flour and oats- nutritionally way better for you and the taste of those waffles are far superior to this recipe- I was expecting something miraculous tasting with all the white flour and butter and it just fell flat for me

As someone who grew up on Belgian Waffles (mostly Bisquick) I have to say this is most definately a 5-star recipe. ***** I whipped the egg whites first (used my KitchenAid mixer the whole time), that way I could use the same bowl to mix everything in after I took the whites out. I used SmartBalance spread instead of butter and upped the cinnamon to 1 tsp or so. I also used instant buttermilk powder & water. **** I have a giant waffle maker that makes 4 large Belgian waffle squares at one time. I was leary about the original yield of this recipe...only 3? Who eats only 3 waffles in a family? This recipe yeilded 8 big fat squares, not just 3. Being pregnant, I ate 4 squares and my daughters each ate 3 between them...with 1 left for my hubby when he gets home. lol! **** Anyway, this is a superb recipe. Make sure to mix the egg whites in very well (gently). Finding large egg white clumps is not the most pleasant experience.

I doubled this recipe. I used "soured" milk and I upped the baking powder to three teaspoons. Also, my "pinch" of cinnamon is probably bigger than your average pinch would be. Other than that, I kept to the recipe. Out of a doubled recipe, I got 12 full sized regular waffles (and that means that I used one of those four-count basic wafflemaker and none of them were cheated out of batter). These waffles were crisp on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. I served these with Absolute Best Pancake Syrup, which is also on this site. This was one of the top waffle recipes I've tried from this site, I think the buttermilk and the touch of cinnamon make this recipe.

These waffles were fantastic and very easy to throw together. I would recommend, as some other reviewers have, of increasing the cinnamon to up to 1 teaspoon. I didn't have buttermilk, so I just used regular skim milk and they still turned out just fine. Delicious with cinnamon-flavoured syrup.

You'll never buy frozen waffles again! They're actually better after they've been frozen. Defrost them in the microwave then pop 'em in the toster. Just sprinkle a little powered sugar on top instead of syrup and you won't overpower the waffle. But if you must use syrup, then splurge on "real maple syrup" instead of bottle of fake "pancake syrup".

I substituted 1% milk with 1 TBS. of lemon juice for the buttermilk, increased the cinnamon to 1 tsp. and added a sprinkle of nutmeg. They're light and tasted good.

These were very good. I doubled the recipe and there were only two left over by the time my boys got finished with them. I did not have time to worry about separating the eggs so just put them in whole; however I do think they would have been fluffier had I beat the egg whites as instructed. I also increased the cinnamon (we really like cinnamon) and added a dash of fresh grated nutmeg. We will definitely make these again.
