These are really good, but I would agree that they are more cake-like than brownie-ish. Kind of like a flat, warm cupcake! We had ours with vanilla ice cream and Sue's Homemade Hot Fudge sauce. Yum! We tried varying degrees of done-ness, and the slightly gooey center was the universal favorite, so keep a close eye on the waffle iron! I can't wait to bust this one out for company. (I think I'm going to try the Cinnamon Ice Cream recipe here with it, too. MMMMmmm....)

I'll be honest. I'm not one to give out negative comments. If a recipe is not to my liking, I'll tweak it a little bit. The batter is way too heavy, even though I added a few more tablespoons of water to it. My waffle iron did not want to lie flat because the batter was so thick and when I pressed the lid down, it was still so thick, that it did not encompass the whole iron surface. The consistency of the batter before cooking resembles that of a brownie but, that's where it ends. These waffles are like eating chocolate bricks. I didn't realize that their were other listed recipes for "chocolate waffles". I will try those. They seem to looks lighter, having leavening agents/ more ingredients. Sorry, they were pretty bad.

Interesting recipe. Since I read the reviews before mixing the batter.. I added a verrry ripe smallish banana to the mix .. kept them moister I think. Then near the end.. I got a little crazed and added maraschino cherry juice to the last two rounds worth of batter.. and Voila!! a Chewy Brownie ! :) Thanks for posting a fun recipe. We will make this one again.

Ok..think of these as "Chocolate Waffles", not brownies, and you're ok. My family ate them several different ways, and we all loved them. I spinkled powdered sugar on top, my husband topped his with strawberry jam, and my kids ate them al la mode. Either way, they were a hit. Not too sweet by themselves, but in my opionion, that made them better, because we could all find our own individual way to eat them. Oh..as an added bonus, they were extremely easy to make, and even easier to clean up, considering you only use one pot and your waffle iron! Definatly a make again!

I followed it to the t, and loved it. Watch it to make sure it doesn't overcook... and any leftovers get hard fast (you can microwave, but they're not the same). Great, easy recipe!

My boyfriend especially loved this recipe. It only made 6 waffles for me. Of course, they are a more dry brownie due to the nature of how they are cooked. My boyfriend said they were better on the second day. I added mini-chocolate chips and a few chopped pecans to the recipe - Also-- I served mine hot in a bowl right off the griddle with two scoops of vanilla ice cream and then smothered with hot fudge sauce. It was very easy and delicious. I will make them again and again. Especially for company. It was a fast and easy clean up desert.

These had a very good taste, but I prefer a chewy and moist brownie. These were very cake-like and a little dry. But I liked the fact they were different and cool looking. I'll bet they would be good with ice-cream and hot fudge sauce.
