DON'T BLAME THE RECIPE! I've read about 150 reviews of this recipe, & lots of the knockers complain about either the texture, the taste or the lack of crispiness! Now, texture depends on how 'light' or 'chewy' they are - this is determined by the raising agent (baking powder), how much air and fat (egg yolk) is in the mix (sift the flour, don't overmix & DON'T let it stand too long before using, that's how to make crepes, not waffles) Taste is something that varies from person to person, so if you want your waffles to taste of something - add it yourself - but don't then expect everyone else to want only that taste. Waffles are shaped the way they are to hold flavours & sauces evenly distributed over the surface, & you can add as little or as much as you like - that's the whole idea of a waffle! As for complaints about crispness, or the 'soggy' middle - that's caused by the speed and temperature that you use - NOT THE RECIPE! Cook it too hot and it will be done on the outside before the inside, not hot enough and it will be thick, heavy to eat & may not rise properly. Also, some people use 'old-fashioned' metal waffle irons on a stove top, some use microwave waffle irons & re-crisp in a toaster - and many use electric waffle makers where the results vary because of the starting temperature, the quantity of the mix put in and how well it closes (which determines how much steam escapes - therefore how 'dry' the end result is). Work out the method that suits YOU! Happy Cooking!
