Sour Cream Waffles

When we lived in Sooke, BC in the middle of no where, I remember that my parents got a waffle iron for our family Christmas gift. Now, Christy and I come from a family of 7, and this was an iron that made 2 at a time. You see where this is going...yes, as children, we spent a lot of time waiting around the table for our breakfasts while our little brother hogged a spot in the line up until the very end!

Our favorite waffles, or the ones we made the most were sour cream waffles. I remember how gross we thought that sounded, but the result is mmm gooood! I now make them every now and then for our kids, with the waffle maker we got from the Kohl's as a wedding gift.

2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup butter
1 cup buttermilk*
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking soda

*if you don't have buttermilk, add a Tbs of lemon juice or vingear at a regular cup of milk

  1. Mix the wet. Mix the dry. Mix them together
  2. Add about 1/4 cup of batter to each waffle square. Don't over fill it, it should be a blog in the center.
  3. Ideas for toppings: maple syrup (again only the good stuff), cut up fruit, whip cream, powdered sugar, jam, yogurt, nutella.

Any other topping ideas?


  1. We ate these for breakfast this morning. Sawyer and I give them a big thumbs up!

  2. So Brit, Blake made these as pancakes, like you told us, and you're right, best pancakes ever!
