They say that necessity is the mother of invention. I was going to make waffles and realised there was no sour cream in the house. So, I used vanilla eggnog and cream to create the final product.
The end result? Waffles that are crisp and sweet. They remind me of biting down on a piece of pastry. Well worth a try!
