Author Notes

One little trick to make these waffles sweet in the diner-style way is to use a bit of malted milk powder. If you can't find it, you can use the same amount of sugar. Sour cream adds a nice tang and tenderness to the batter. —Posie (Harwood) Brien

In This Recipe
Directions
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs with the sugar and vanilla until frothy.
  2. Add the sour cream and whisk vigorously until smooth.
  3. Add the flour, cornmeal, salt, malted milk powder (or sub an additional tablespoon of sugar), baking powder, and baking soda. Whisk until just combined.
  4. Add the milk and whisk until the batter is just combined but don't overmix--it's okay if it's a bit lumpy.
  5. Heat your waffle iron: Cook your waffles according to the instructions on your waffle maker.
  6. Serve hot! Or freeze them and reheat later -- YUM.

Review
I like warm homemade bread slathered with fresh raw milk butter, ice cream in all seasons, the smell of garlic in olive oil, and sugar snap peas fresh off the vine.
