the best waffles

remember that time i wanted a cooking blog?

yeah, me neither.

life is messy, man, and waffles make things better. this is adapted from the better homes and gardens new cookbook, the one with the red gingham and ring-binding for easy addition/subtraction. these waffles will make you feel good. they will remind you of diners. they will silence you because you will be busy chewing. they are delightful topped with butter, and syrup that also has butter added to it because, fuck all.

the best waffles
1 3/4 cup flour
2 1/2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt1/2 cup butter
2 eggs1/3 cup sour cream
1 cup buttermilk*
1 tsp vanilla

whisk together the flour, sugar, powder, soda and salt. make a well in the middle, set aside.

in a separate bowl, melt your butter. add eggs one at a time, whisking well so they don't scramble and/or clumpify the butter. slowly whisk in the sour cream til smooth. whisk in buttermilk and vanilla.

pour wet ingredients into well of dry ingredients, and mix just until moistened, resulting in a lumpy, sticky batter.

cook according to your waffle iron's instructions, serve pronto with the aforementioned butter and buttery syrup. also, whipped cream. also, fruit. also, ice cream.

*or be me and add 1 tbsp of white vinegar to a 1 cup measuring cup and fill the rest of the way with milk; let sit 5 minutes. because srsly, who has buttermilk around anymore? i know they used to drink that shit straight in the 50's but damn.
