From the Kitchen // Birthday Waffles


  Sour Cream Waffles   


Ingredients:
1 1/2 C flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 Tbs sugar
3 eggs (yolks separated, whites whipped)
3/4 C sour cream
3/4 milk or buttermilk
1/4 C oil
1/4 C melted butter

Beat egg whites into soft peaks, fold gently into batter.  Cook up in the greased and heated iron of your choice.
The perfect waffles need the blend of the right temp. waffle iron, the best ingredients possible, and that magic touch on the batter, ever-so-softly folding in the egg whites till they're light as air.  That's it.


For my birthday, we made waffles.  Waffles from my Grandma's recipe - golden, crisp, light, creamy and silky as a really good dream.  She was famous for her sour cream waffles and her hospitality.

A variety of toppings were set out on the festal board, including homemade plum sauce, almond butter, and cinnamon.  But for my first, I reached for the freshly skimmed and whipped raw cream, so sweet that no sugar was needed. A lavish helping of :adorable: chocolate sprinkles, some flecks of butter - and bliss.

Later, a stack of golden waffles for snacking and Wives and Daughters.  
Come on over for breakfast sometime?  'Cause making waffles is my favorite.
