Sour Cream Cardamom Waffles Recipe

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."
