An easy homemade waffle recipe made with sour cream. They’re perfectly golden and crisp on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside.


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract *optional
  • 1/2 c sour cream
  • 1.5 cup cake flour (makes for a fluffier waffle than AP flour)
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 1tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup milk
  • additional sour cream, berries and maple syrup for garnish


  • Whisk 2 eggs with 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tsp vanilla until fluffy
  • Add in 1/2 cup sour cream and whisk briefly, then add in 1.5 cups cake flour, 1 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp baking soda and whisk briefly until mostly incorporated. It’s okay if it’s lumpy.
  • Slowly pour in 1/2 cup of milk and stir with a spatula until incorporated.  Add up to 3/4 cup of milk if the batter is too thick. It should be a thicker batter, not watery or soupy, but should definitely be sticky and pourable.
  • Pour the batter into a waffle iron and cook to desired darkness. Once the steam dissipates, the waffles are cooked.
  • Remove waffles from the iron once cooked to desired brownness and then place on a cooling rack until ready to serve.
  • Serve topped with a dollop of sour cream and fresh berries.
