    When I made this recipe, I used "soured" milk (lemon juice added to milk to make it seem like I used buttermilk) and I used all butter instead of butter/olive oil. These turned out so beautifully, they puffed up nicely in the waffle iron and when you ate them, they were tender, fluffy and just WONDERFUL. I served these with extra butter and homemade maple-vanilla syrup. The family loved them. This recipe's a keeper.  -  12 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    very good, flavorful waffles. I doubled the recipe & froze the remainder. i gave 4 stars instead of 5 due to the cooking time needing to be about 10 minutes to get them beyond the soft stage. very yummy recipe and I will be making them again.  -  25 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent! I used all purpose flour and subbed ground oats for the wheat germ. Nice crisp/tender texture and great flavor. We had these with whipped cream, maple syrup and toasted chopped pecans. Yum. Thanks for the recipe!  -  21 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
