Sour Cream Cardamom Waffles
Cardamom has such a delicate flavor. I've been making coffee cakes with this interesting spice for years, and now I found a use for it in waffles. More often than not, my family will request these waffles instead of plain ones.—Ruth Andrewson, Leavenworth, Washington

I have been making these waffles for 10 years and we love them. They require a little extra work to prepare, but they are well worth it. I love the hint of the cardamom flavor.
