Perfect Waffles - Seriously!

I have searched and searched and SEARCHED for a waffle recipe that I love. There are plenty that I like (I mean it's hard to find a recipe that isn't at least okay, right?). This morning I made green waffles for my kids for St. Patty's day and I decided to do my own thing with the recipe. This makes a HUGE batch! (I have 5 kids ya know!) We even had leftovers. Most of you are probably going to want to cut this recipe in half.

4 eggs
4 1/2 - 5 cups flour
3 1/2 cups milk (today I had 1% - this is rare for me)
14 T butter (3/4 c. + 2 T), melted
2T + 2t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
2T vanilla

Beat eggs until fluffy, add flour and milk alternately until well blended. Add melted butter and mix well. Add baking powder, salt and sugar. Mix well. Beat in sour cream and vanilla. Pour mixture (according to waffle iron instructions) onto a hot waffle iron. Ta Da! Perfect waffles! Freeze any leftovers for a quick toaster breakfast.

*Chocolate Variation: Add 1/2 cup cocoa powder to the flour to make chocolate waffles. Top with whipped cream for a fun treat.

*Colored Variation: Add food coloring for a fun change of pace. My kids LOVE love LOVE it when I put a few drops of food coloring in the waffles/pancakes.


  1. How much butter? How much is in a cube?

    1. 14 tablespoons total which is 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (one cube is equal to 1/2 cup)

    2. We love this recipe and make it at least once a week!


  2. Probably a silly question...but, what does the sour cream add to this recipe? I like sweet waffles and it would seem as though the sour cream would make them more on the savory side.

  3. The writing is a little bit hard to read. 14 looks like 16 or 1/4. Fourteen tablespoons of butter :)

  4. Thanks for the recipe. My family of ten loved it. It's nice to see large serving recipes. I am always having to double or triple recipes. I made with whole wheat flour and served with walnuts, whipping cream and blueberries. I do this for dinner on a lazy night. It was delicious! Thanks again!

  5. We love this recipe. I regularly substitute Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. I sometimes up the sugar for sweeter or top it with real whipped cream and sugared berries. So good. I also tend to half the salt, trying to be heart conscious.
