(Stephen Osman, Los Angeles Times)
Sour cream waffles
Total time: About 40 minutes
Servings: Makes 12 to 16 waffles
Note: Adapted from the 1957 edition of "Joy of Cooking"
1 cup cake flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 eggs, separated
2 cups sour cream
1. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the cake flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and baking soda.
2. In a small bowl, mix the egg yolks and sour cream until smooth and whisk them into the dry ingredients.
3. Beat the egg whites until stiff but not dry. Stir approximately one-third of the egg whites into the sour cream mixture to lighten it, then gently fold the remaining egg whites into the batter. Bake according to manufacturer's instructions for your waffle maker. Serve immediately; they will soften on standing.
