Step 1

Step 1: In a mixing bowl, whip the eggs and granulated sugar until the mixture has increased in volume and becomes light and fluffy. The mixture should form a ribbon when the whisk is lifted.Beating the eggs and sugar sufficiently is crucial for creating a light waffle texture. It usually takes about 3-5 minutes on high speed with a stand mixer.

Step 2

Step 2: In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt. Then gently fold this dry mixture into the whipped egg mixture with a spatula to maintain the volume.Sift the dry ingredients before adding them to the egg mixture for a smoother batter and to avoid lumps.

Step 3

Step 3: Melt the butter and let it cool slightly. Gradually drizzle the melted butter into the batter, stirring gently with a spatula.Pour the butter in slowly to incorporate it smoothly without deflating the batter.

Step 4

Step 4: Finally, fold in the sour cream until well combined.Ensure the sour cream is at room temperature to mix more uniformly with the batter.

Step 5

Step 5: Preheat your waffle iron and lightly brush it with vegetable oil. Pour about two tablespoons of batter onto the mold and cook for approximately 5 minutes or until golden brown and crisp.Cooking times may vary depending on your waffle iron, so keep an eye on the first couple of waffles to adjust the timing as necessary.

Step 6

Step 6: Enjoy your freshly made waffles!Serve the waffles warm with your favorite toppings such as fresh fruits, whipped cream, or maple syrup.


Isn't it wonderful when the aroma of freshly baked waffles wafts through your home? These waffles are incredibly versatile and can be served in countless ways to elevate any meal. For a classic touch, try topping them with a pad of butter and a generous drizzle of maple syrup. If you're feeling a bit more adventurous, pile on some fresh berries, a dollop of whipped cream, and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. How about a savory twist? Pair these waffles with crispy fried chicken and a drizzle of hot sauce for a Southern-style treat that's hard to beat. Fancy a dessert waffle? A scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup can turn your breakfast favorite into a sweet, after-dinner delight. No matter how you choose to serve them, these waffles are bound to impress.


Looking to make these waffles gluten-free or vegan? No problem! For a gluten-free version, simply substitute the all-purpose flour with a 1:1 gluten-free flour blend. Ensure your baking powder is gluten-free, and you're good to go. For a vegan variation, replace the eggs with a vegan egg substitute. Swap out the butter with a plant-based alternative like coconut oil or vegan margarine, and use a non-dairy option for the sour cream, such as coconut cream. Both versions will still give you that delightful, fluffy texture you crave.


  • Why are my waffles sticking to the waffle iron?

    You may need to grease your waffle iron more thoroughly. Make sure it's well-coated with vegetable oil or a non-stick spray before adding the batter.

  • How do I know when my waffles are done?

    Your waffle iron should have an indicator light. If not, cook the waffles until steam stops escaping from the sides, which is usually around five minutes.

  • Can I make the batter ahead of time?

    Yes, you can prepare the batter and refrigerate it for up to 24 hours. Just give it a good stir before using.

  • How do I keep my waffles crispy?

    To keep them crispy, place finished waffles on a wire rack in a single layer, or keep them warm in the oven at a low temperature.

  • Can I freeze these waffles?

    Absolutely. Allow the waffles to cool completely, then place them in a single layer on a baking sheet to freeze. Once frozen, transfer them to a freezer bag. To reheat, pop them in the toaster or oven until warm and crispy.

  • What's the best way to serve these waffles for a large crowd?

    Keep the waffles warm in the oven as you make them, and set up a toppings bar with various fruits, syrups, and spreads so guests can customize their own.
