2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1 cup whole milk
1 cup sour cream
3 tbs melted butter, plus more for iron
In a large bowl, whisk together first five ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and sour cream. Add to dry ingredients and bring together with a fork until moistened. Stir in melted butter.
Ladle batter onto a very hot, buttered waffle iron, following guidelines for its make and model.
Sweet White Sauce
2 cups whole milk
2 1/2 tbs all-purpose flour
3 tbs granulated sugar
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Heat 1 3/4 cups of the milk in a double boiler until simmering.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour and sugar. Gradually add remaining milk and vanilla, beating until well blended. Add to double boiler and whisk, constantly and vigorously, until mixture is thickened and cooked (no taste of the flour).
