a double dose of delightfully dowling?
it's your lucky night!

one of the questions from my blog hoppin' monday post was:
waffles or pancakes?
that put me in the mood for
{breakfast for dinner}

after reading snowhite's post about
i knew those were the ones i wanted to try!

waffles of insane greatness

3/4 c all purpose flour
1/4 c corn starch
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1/2 c milk
1/2 c sour cream
1/4 c vegetable oil
1 egg
3/4 tsp vanilla extract
zest of 1 lemon

1. sift together dry ingredients.

2. in a separate bowl, mix milk, sour cream, oil, egg, vanilla and lemon zest.

3. combine wet & dry ingredients, mixing until just slightly lumpy.
*do not over mix! we want light & fluffy waffles!

4. allow mixture to sit for 30 minutes.
*i was very impatient... i let it sit for 5 minutes.

5. pour batter into wafflemaker & cook according to directions.

6. serve warm.

the vanilla extract and lemon zest are so light and refreshing.
these waffles are perfection.
if you're looking for a perfect weekend breakfast menu,
these waffles with the baked sausage & gruyere omelet would be scrumptious.

have a great evening!
until next time,

dowlings, out!
