Recipe: Sour Cream Waffles

by Cate on March 15, 2016

Waffles so tender and delicious, they’ll make a convert out of the most ardent waffle-hater…


As much as we use our waffle maker (this one!), I really don’t like waffles.

But you know how that story goes.

You don’t like something, until you have it a particular way, or with a particular recipe, and all of the sudden, everything has changed.

This is that.

Breakfast for dinner is probably a weekly occurrence in our house.

Because it’s easy, everyone loves it, and I can play Short Order Cook and make everyone their (different) favorites, but still be done within half an hour.

Which is pretty perfect for the average weeknight in our household.

Because between homework, showers, and extra-curricular activities, who needs a meal that takes forever to make?

Definitely not me.

So… I’m always looking for new recipes for waffles, whether sweet or savory, to continue to keep it interesting.

And I stumbled on a recipe for Sour Cream Waffles.

Checked the fridge. Have all the ingredients. It’s a done deal.

Like any basic waffle recipe, the batter mixes up in nothing flat, and bonus points for using basic ingredients that you likely have on hand already.

For some reason, likely starvation, I snuck a bite of the first waffle that came off the press.

And then I finished it.

Because it was THAT GOOD.

No butter or syrup needed (although my kids might disagree).

So tender. With a slightly crispy outside and a soft bite inside.

THIS recipe has converted me to liking waffles.

Whether you eat it hot off the waffle iron in all of its naked glory, or you add your favorite toppings … you can’t go wrong with this one.


Hungry for more waffle recipes? I’ve got you.
Falafel waffles are a unique savory twist … and delish when topped with a soft avocado and a runny egg.
Rainbow waffles make a fun dinner or a perfect sleepover breakfast. And heck, they’re just pretty to look at.
Pizza Waffles were a crowd pleaser, and got a huge thumbs up from the kids. No surprise there.
And for a unique breakfast alternative, give these Bacon, Egg, and Spinach Wafflesa try.

These waffles look absolutely perfect! I have all the ingredients but no waffle maker. It’s something I’ve been wanting for a while. I imagine these would be good in a sweet or savory setting. xo, Catherine
