  • Make sure to use fresh eggs for the best results.
  • It is important to use sour milk for this recipe, as the acidity helps to create a light, fluffy waffle.

  • Substitute almond milk for sour milk - Almond milk is a dairy-free alternative that will still provide a creamy texture to the waffles. It is a healthier alternative to regular milk as it is lower in calories and fat.
  • Substitute coconut oil for butter - Coconut oil is a great vegan alternative to butter, and it has a high smoke point so it is a healthier alternative when cooking waffles in a waffle iron. It also adds a subtle coconut flavor to the waffles.

Blueberry Sour Milk Cornmeal Waffles Follow the same instructions as above, but add 1 cup of blueberries to the batter before cooking in the waffle iron.

Fruity Maple Syrup: This sweet and tangy syrup is the perfect accompaniment to the savory Sour Milk Cornmeal Waffles. The combination of tart fruits, such as blueberries and raspberries, and maple syrup will bring out the flavors of the waffles and leave your taste buds wanting more!

Buttermilk Pancakes: Buttermilk Pancakes are a classic breakfast option that pairs perfectly with Fruity Maple Syrup. The tangy buttermilk flavor of the pancakes complements the sweetness of the syrup, creating a delicious and balanced breakfast dish. Serve with a side of fresh fruit or a dollop of whipped cream for a decadent treat!
