    Enjoyed for our breakfast this morning! Moist and tender. Served with maple syrup but would be awesome with lingonberries. I thought the cardamom was strong but my cardamon is very fresh. I store pods in freezer, then remove husks and pound so maybe that is why I think I will reduce amount next time. Thank you very much for recipe.

    Carsamom made a nice variation to our usual plai waffles. I'd like to try these gluten-free next time. Reviewed for July Recipe Swap in Aus/NZ Forum. My apologies for being so late with my review.

    We don't have waffles a lot around here, so when I do serve them, most often I top my with some white corn syrup or a little strawberry preserves ~ For these great tasting breakfast treats it was the syrup (minus the powdered sugar)! Very much enjoyed the cardamom & sour cream in these & will be making them again, for sure! [Made & reviewed during the Family Picks part of ZWT6]

    Wonderful tasting waffles. I topped mine with a little butter and some powdered sugar. These aren't a crisp waffle but a very moist waffle. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT6.

    These waffles are so yummy. We liked the taste of cardamom in it. We ate them with maple syrup and a little bit of whipped cream for me. I used 2% fat milk and fat free sour cream. Thanks Mom2Rose :) Made for the Zwizzle Chicks of ZWT

    This were really delicious! I made pancakes instead of waffles. I scaled it down to one serving. For the egg, I beat one egg in a cup and poured half of it into the sour cream. I am not a milk drinker so I didn't have any whole milk,. I mixed a little bit of water with some Half and Half. about 2 to 1 Two parts Half and Half and one .part water. It worked out quite well.I had Cardamom powder instead of ground. II had to double the Cardamom to even taste it. It all worked out to be the perfect amount of batter. It made 2 pancakes, which was the perfect amount I will be making this again.The Directions were easy to follow. Thanks sister gypsy for sharing your recipe. This was made for ZWT 4 Family picks and the Cafe ZMAKK Gypsies
