Father’s Day is coming up this weekend, and who’s to say that dad doesn’t want breakfast in bed? I think that’s more associated with Mother’s Day (at least in my mind), but everyone loves to be pampered and have a nice meal prepared for them – especially in bed! I have the perfect fluffy waffle recipe for you, whether or not you want to make it for a special dad. I even snuck in some whole grains to make this a bit healthier without compromising taste.

Recently I had a craving for homemade waffles on a lazy Sunday morning, but discovered we were out of milk. I’d been wanting to use my new waffle maker that I got at Eat, Write, Retreat, for over a month, so I wasn’t willing to give up that easily. I did some Googling and found a sour cream waffle recipe with no milk required! I replaced the regular all purpose flour with white whole wheat flour, which is my go-to trick to make baked goods a tiny bit healthier without making them taste healthy. (I’ve done this with doughnutsmuffins and pizza dough successfully too.)

Next time you find yourself out of milk on a Sunday morning, I hope you’ll have some sour cream and yogurt on hand. You’ll be able to make these lovely waffles without getting out of your PJ’s to go to the store.

    I know what you mean… Fathers should also be given breakfast in bed….hehe. Our society has somehow put more emphasis on fathers than mothers but i know i love both of my parents dearly and would want to celebrate equally too…

    Those waffles look great and your pictures look lovely!
