These waffles substitute sour cream and yogurt for milk. The inspiration came about one morning when there was no milk in the house.

These waffles were fantastic! My family enjoys the flavor of vanilla in our waffles so I used vanilla yogurt instead of plain and also added a tsp. of vanilla extract. YUMMY! Read More

These were really good. My two year olds even ate them! I made a couple of changes after looking at the reviews. I actually used low fat milk instead of water. I used half wheat flour and half all purpose flour. I used vanilla yogurt and vanilla instead of the vinegar. I topped them with applesauce a little lite syrup and some cinnamon. Yum! I loved that they were more healthy than regular waffles! Thanks for posting this recipe! Read More

Yummy! I used vanilla yogurt because we always have that on hand. I added 1 tsp of vanilla extract and left out the vinegar. So delicious and creamy - just like a previous reviewer said! Much better than a mix from a box and not at all difficult to make! Read More

Wow these are good. A few tips. First do NOT SKIP the vinegar. This is what adds lightness to the dough and you can't taste it at all - it is a chemical reaction you need to give you light fluffy waffles. Second keep the fat of your sour cream/yogurt in mind. Full fat will need more water added to the batter while low or fat free will need less water to get the right consistency. Also because I like my waffles this way I added 3 Tbsp of demerara sugar (i.e. Sugar in the Raw) which adds a little sweetness a little crunch. These are great. Read More

Excellent!Fluffy and flavorful. My husband was skeptical at first but quickly ate his words along with most of the waffles. These have become a staple at my house. The only change I made was using vanilla yogurt instead of plain because that's what I had on hand. Read More

Christmas Morning GOOD! Need I say more. If perfect can be improved upon though I did make the first batch as written then for the next batch I followed the lemon jce. instead of vinegar w/ 1 tsp. of vanilla advice and it was delicious. We served them with homemade chunky applesauce and syrup & cream! What a delightful breakfast! Read More

More like 4.5 stars really. I doubled the recipe and used a container of vanilla yogurt and subbed half whole wheat flour for all the ap. I got six waffles on my belgian waffle maker this way. I took a family poll of this recipe vs my normal go-to and this won hands down. DH really liked that they were nice and moist and didn't suck up all the syrup like my normal recipe. I think I've found a new go-to. Thank you for sharing! Read More
