When I read this recipe at Petra’s blog childhood was calling me. I didn’t need to convince my daughter to help me baking some German style waffles. So, two hours later, while taking my first bite into warm, soft cinnamon waffles, my mind was taking me back being a little girl. I am sitting at my aunt and uncle’s lunch table. My grandmother is sitting next to me and my cousins across from me. We are having a hardy vegetable soup accompanied by homemade waffles. There is hardly any dish that comes close to this.
My aunt still makes waffles like this till this day. They are the best you have ever eaten. This recipe comes very close to hers.
Thank you Petra for taking me back down memory lane.
* 120 g butter, a room temperature
* 150 g sugar
* 2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
* 4 eggs
* 200 g sour cream
* 100 ml milk
* 2 tablespoons oil
* 2 teaspoons baking powder
* 250 g flour
* 2 teaspoons cinnamon
* 2 tablespoons butter
* confectioner sugar for dusting the waffles
Heat your waffle iron and butter before adding waffle dough.
Beat butter, sugar, salt and vanilla sugar until very well mixed and butter turns a light color (about 5 minutes). Add eggs, one at a time, mix well. Add sour cream, milk and oil until the dough has a smooth consistence. Mix baking powder, flour and cinnamon in a separate bowl. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture until just combined, don’t over beat!
Add portions of the dough to your waffle iron, bake until done. Sprinkle with confectionery sugar and serve warm.
