Vitantonio Sour Cream Waffles

My mom has had a special waffle iron and its original instructional and recipe book for more than 20 years. Every year around the holidays, she makes sour cream waffles (yes, sour cream!) and the whole family gathers around for this two-decade-long tradition.

This year, she was all set up to make us her special waffles when disaster struck: the recipe book was missing! We turned the house upside down looking for the booklet. When we found it 30 minutes later, we vowed to never lose the recipe again. So here it is, forever immortalized on the Soap Queen Blog — Vitantonio Sour Cream Waffles! These waffles are super easy to make, and the sour cream keeps them moist and decadent. Delicious!


2 eggs

1 cup sour cream

1/4 cup butter, melted

1 cup buttermilk

1.5 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

 ONE: Combine the eggs, sour cream, butter (cooled) and buttermilk in large bowl and beat with a hand-mixer until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda.

TWO: Slowly add dry ingredients to the liquid mixture and stir until well blended. Batter will be slightly lumpy, but makes the most delicious waffles!

THREE: Put a big dab of the batter in the middle of a warmed, greased waffle iron, and bake until fully cooked.

FOUR: Serve with jam, maple syrup or gjetost (Norwegian goat cheese). Yummy!

    Hi, I am from Norway and make plenty of waffles, but i wonder where is your sugar? To a recipe like this you can add up to 0.42 cups sugar. Another suggestion for a more crisp finish is to substitute some milk with 0.6-0.75 cups full cream (that you make whipped cream from). Also it is suggested to mix the flour and milk and let set for a few hrs (min 1 hr), or even a whole day before mixing in other ingredients. If you add sugar you can mix the egg and sugar to eggnog before mixing in the rest which will also give nice waffles. Gjeitost or strawberry jam with sour cream is the most common here in Norway.

    For a healthier option you can use whole flour or add some oatmeal.

    Keep enjoying!

    This is only the second place I have ever seen reference to Gjetost. The first was at the yes can you believe it “Cheese Queen” website. I had never heard of it until reading different articles while learning to make home made cheese. Now I am learning Soap making from another Queen and I see the second reference to this cheese. I guess I may have to try to make some.
