Waffles are so easy! I'm exploring lots of recipes and this is one I really like to make. You'll get about 5 waffles from the batter. I place them in a slightly warmed oven as I make them, then call everyone to the table to enjoy. This keeps them crisp and warm.
Now about the wonderful cookbook I got the recipe from, Mad Hungry: Feeding Men and Boys. I've been enjoying Lucinda's show, by the same name, and couldn't wait to get the book. It's full of gorgeous photos and simple recipes.
These waffles are delicious with a dominant egg flavour as there are 5 eggs in the batter. The taste reminds me of french toast and thy're not too sweet.
Watch Lucinda make these waffles here on her show. Below is the recipe and I've linked the products which I order from Azure Standard.
SOUR CREAM WAFFLES
from Mad Hungry: Feeding Men and Boys
5 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar (I use Stevia in the Raw)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, cinnamon, or cardamom
1 cup sour cream
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
vegetable oil or extra melted butter, for the waffle iron
1 cup berries, fresh or frozen and heated before serving
Beat the eggs and sugar together for 5 to 8 minutes. When the beater is lifted, it should trail a ribbon of batter.
Whisk together the flour, salt, and spice. With a spoon, alternately fold into the batter half of the flour mixture. the sour cream, and finally the remaining flour mixture. Lightly stir in the melted butter. Let the batter sit for 10 minutes.
Heat a nonstick or well-seasoned waffle iron to medium high. Brush lightly with oil or melted butter. Pour in 1 1/4 cups batter and cook until golden, 2 1/2 to 3 minutes per side for a stovetop waffle iron. An electric waffle iron will beep when ready. Serve with fresh berries or berry sauce on top.
