Waffles are another good item to make for mom on Mother’s Day. It’s easy to grab a box of waffle mix and have the kids make mom breakfast. These lemon sour cream waffles all start with a waffle mix. However, with a few extra ingredients you can elevate the regular box mixed waffles into some special waffles perfect for mom on Mother’s Day.
My waffle mix of choice is from Hungry Jack. That is where these waffles begin. The you need the ingredients you normally need to make the waffles from this mix. You need water, eggs, and oil.
Then you add two more ingredients to take these waffles from regular waffles to gourmet lemon sour cream waffles. First is sour cream. You can use regular or light sour cream for theses waffles. Either will work just fine.
Next is some fresh lemon zest. You can use a fine shredd cheese grater, but a micro plane works the very best to zest a lemon. The lemon flavor of these waffles pair so perfectly with fresh berries. Pick mom’s favorite berry or use a nice combination. I personally love the combination of strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries. However, when I made these waffles for the picture, strawberries are the only berries that were available for a decent price.
