Sour Milk Waffles

Mom was a great cook. In addition, she despised waste, and, given that we had two quarts of milk delivered daily, sour milk was not unknown in our house.

What follows is not her recipe, but it is very similar, and it is one of the numerous uses that she had for turned milk. Believe it or not, these are the best waffles you have ever consumed.

For 6 waffles:

  • 1 1/3 c. All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 t. Salt
  • 1/2 t. Baking soda
  • 1/4 c. Shortening, melted
  • 1 c. Sour milk
  • 1 t. Sugar
  • 2 Eggs

  • Sift flour, measure, and sift with salt and baking soda.
  • Beat egg yolks until light and foamy.
  • Add sugar and shortening.
  • Mix well.
  • Add milk alternately with sifted dry ingredients to egg mixture.
  • Fold in stiffly beaten egg whites.
  • Bake in hot waffle iron.
