Sour Cream Waffles with Blueberries

Sour Cream Waffles with fresh blueberries are perfect for  long leisurely breakfasts like the ones we’ve been having .  Our family is officially on Spring Break and enjoying every minute of it.

Because this recipe involves whipping egg whites and using quite a few bowls, it’s not exactly the type of thing I’d throw together on a week day.  However, you can make extra waffles, freeze them, then throw them in the toaster on fast-paced mornings.

I hope you like these.  For crispier waffles, use oil instead of butter or keep the butter and just cook the waffles a little longer.  I have a Cuisinart single waffle maker and I think I cooked mine on a “5” or “6” to get it crisp.    This recipe is also very easy to halve.

    I love everything about fresh waffles except the part where you make them… one at a time…. :). My go to recipe is super simple as it shoud be (other than the “oat flour”), but these look quite good. Question though: Does the lemon flavour actually come through or is it a replacement for butter milk?

    We love waffles! I prefer my waffles without add ins, but I love to change up the toppings. We’re on spring break too, and my son has asked for some cooking and baking lessons!

    That’s awesome about your son. I wish I had discovered I enjoyed baking when I was still in school, my career path would likely have been completely different. There were plenty of family members available to teach, I just never knew that I wanted to learn :).

    I’d love to have spring break already, I have to wait for another 2 months 🙁 But I guess I could make these waffles to brighten my day.

    Looks like a good recipe. I was wondering what you think about regular versus reduced fat sour cream. Every time I cook with it, I wonder if the reduced fat stuff (which is what I always buy and have in the fridge) makes inferior pancakes, scones, etc? I can’t decide if I should bother purchasing the regular kind.

    Adam, no. You really can’t taste the lemon. If you want a little lemon flavor, throw in some lemon zest. I’m not sure why I didn’t add any this time!

    Lisa, I know what you mean. It’s either or. Though I have had good blueberry & chocolate chip cookies. Or at least I think. Maybe it was strawberry & chocolate chip….

    Sue, that’s great your son taking an interest in baking. Like Adam, I wonder what my life would have been like if I’d gone that route instead of or in addition to regular college. My situation was the opposite. I loved to cook and bake, but had no one to teach me. It seems like so many chefs talk about growing up in a restaurant or playing in the kitchen while their mother’s cooked, or cooking with grandma etc. I’m always a little envious of that.

    Julie, I don’t buy light sour cream unless a recipe specifically calls for it. It may work here, but these waffles have a lot of sour cream so there’s not a huge margin of error.

    I’ve never made waffles with sour cream but these look interesting.

    I want someone to make these for me!!! I have no waffle iron…Also, blueberries and chocolate can go great together, but maybe not in a pancake…I make blueberry banana brownies and they seem good to me….
