H.R.M.'s Favorite Waffles

From The New McCall's Cookbook 1973
Makes Small batch (3-4 waffles)

1. Beat 1 egg until light.

2. Sift together 1/2 cup flour, 1/4 teas. salt, 1/4 teas. baking soda, 1/4 teas. baking powder.

3. Mix 1/2 cup buttermilk or 1/4 cup sour cream with 1/4 cup milk.

4. Add the flour mixture and buttermilk alternately to beaten eggs.

5. Add 1/4 cup melted butter to batter. Blend thoroughly and bake according to waffle iron directions.

*These are delicious with maple syrup, too. They don't really need butter because it's added in the batter. These were a Sunday tradition at our house growing up. They are still my favorite waffles.

  1. Is the recipe amounts for one person? I doubled it and it produced 3 waffles. I was also using a thinner, smaller waffle iron. That said I recalled this recipe from my childhood and they did not disappoint; fluffy, crispy and flavorful.
