Even after I moved away to college, I would come home for a visit, stop by my grandmothers house and the two of us would head to the coffee shop. (No matter what time of day it was.) We would each order a Belgium waffle and sit in a booth sipping piping hot coffee, eating our waffles and talking about the adventures of life. My grandmother had the best stories and she never stopped herself from saying exactly what she was thinking. The waffles were light, crispy and delicious but spending time with my grandmother was even sweeter. I cherish those memories of her and the time that we were able to spend together.
1 Tablespoon sugar 1/2 cup sour cream
2 cups flour 2 eggs
1/2 cup dried buttermilk 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 cup oil
1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1 1/4 cups seltzer water
Whisk flour, sugar, buttermilk, salt and baking powder. Stir together sour cream, eggs, vanilla and oil. Stir seltzer into wet ingredients.
Pour into dry ingredients and stir gently.
I like my waffles simple - with just a sprinkling of powdered sugar. My family likes to eat them with maple syrup and fresh strawberries. Either way - they're delicious.
