Vanilla Sour Cream Waffles

IMG_2650Hello breakfast lovers– It’s the best morning here.  It’s a school holiday so I’m home alone.  Sun coming in the kitchen windows and an empty day ahead.  I’m lazily content.

I’ve had this waffle recipe tucked away for a while so today is the perfect day to pull it out and give it a try.  And now I’m savoring every bite, warm and tender, at the kitchen table while I type this out to you…

1 1/4 cup flour
2 tab. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
4 tsp. vanilla
3/8 cup canola oil
Toppings: sour cream, blackberry jam, powdered sugar


IMG_2645Stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Then mix in the eggs, sour cream milk, vanilla and oil– into a thick batter.

Heat your waffle iron and cook the waffles according to your machines instructions.

When they are cooked, set them on a wire rack to keep them crisp and set the rack on a baking sheet in a low set oven to keep them warm while you make more.

Serve them dusted with powdered sugar and slathered with sour cream swirled with blackberry jam.

This recipe made 2 large waffles on my waffle maker. I think standard waffles makers would make more.

P.S.I have a Nordicware hand held waffle iron that cooks on a stove top burner.  It makes big thick sturdy Belgian waffles– love that thing.  It was a wedding shower gift and it’s been cranking out waffles for 40 years!
