Sour Cream Belgian Waffles

The cyclist and I are becoming real jet-setters. We are currently (and on short notice) enjoying a week of pizza, insalata caprese, and gelato (like gelato after every meal...sometimes a double scoop.) Having never traveled across this many time zones, this is my first real bout of jet-lag. That is why I have been awake since 2:00 a.m. (7:00 p.m. in my hometown.) I always thought that jet-lag meant you were endlessly tired (hence the word "lag"). Not the case.

We made this for Sunday brunch the day before we left. We LOVED these (at least I thought I loved them, I ate them before I had tried gelato).

Sour Cream Belgian Style Waffles
recipe from my neighborhood cookbook

3 eggs, separated
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup melted butter
3/4 cup sour cream or nonfat plain yogurt
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 T sugar

Beat egg yolks in a large bowl. Add buttermilk, butter and sour cream. In a medium bowl, sift together dry ingredients. Add to sour cream mixture and whisk to combine. In separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff and carefully fold into batter. Bake in Belgian waffle maker and serve with desired toppings. You'll never guess what we topped ours with.

Seriously, about the gelato. How can each new flavor be better than the last? Creme de Argentina? Panna cotta? Yogurt framboise? Do you think there are any gelateria's open at 3:00 a.m.?

You look adorable in this picture! I'm slightly jealous you are enjoying some gelato. I love breakfast more than any other meal, so I will definitely give this a try. Thanks for the recipe! I hope you are having the time of your life in Italy.

I thought Italy was such a fun trup! The food there is so good, especiallly the ensalata caprese! My favorite. And I also had gelato probably like 3 times a day there!
My favorite was always the chocolate hazelnut one!

When my husband and I were in Rome a few years ago, we actually got in a big argument because I was stopping at so many gelato shops. Every time I passed one, I would get excited over the huge abundance of flavors, I just had to try another.
