I'm not sure about those listing this as 'terrible' I'm pretty sure none of them followed the SIMPLE and easy recipe. I used whole wheat flour and they were fine. We are trying to chaneg some of our eating habits and let me say for using whole wheat (which is not a favorite in the first place) I would totally make these again. They were light, fluffy, cooked all the way through, golden etc. I think they either 1) don't know how to cook, 2) don't have a proper waffle maker or 3) don't know how to use said waffle maker. Sheesh, my 7yr old can make these.
