Heat up the Andrew James Waffle Maker and brush with melted butter.
Combine all the ingredients (apart from the sour cream) together with 350 ml water and stir to incorporate and form a smooth, thick batter.
Add a ladle of batter to the hot waffle maker.
Close the lid and cook for 2–3 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from the waffle iron and serve immediately with sour cream.
These spinach and cheese waffles are a Scandinavian staple, if you’re feeling fancy top with a fried egg with a soft yolk and watch it run down and coat these delicious batter beauties!
