Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Serves: 10
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup butter, melted or vegetable oil
  • 1 to 1-1/4 cups fresh buttermilk
  • 1-1/2 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  1. Preheat your waffle iron.
  2. Combine eggs, sour cream, butter and buttermilk. Whisk until smooth.
  3. Slowly add dry ingredients to liquid mixture; stir until well blended. Batter will be slightly lumpy and thick. This shouldn't be a runny batter.
  4. Bake on a Belgian waffle iron as directed.

If using as a dessert waffle, add 2 Tablespoons sugar to the batter for a sweeter taste.

Try adding ½ cup crushed pineapple (drained) to the batter for a change of pace. Top with a dusting of powdered sugar.
