Fresh Blueberry Waffles

Ever get a craving for something that’s so persistent, you obsess over it for months? For the last six months, I would have given my right arm for a blueberry waffle. I know, it would have been easy enough to pop in an Eggo, but they’re just not the same. And the blueberry waffles at Bob Evans are awful. I don’t want all that sugary syrupy crap on my waffles – I just wanted a nice, buttermilk-laden home made waffle. Easy enough order, but I didn’t have a traditional waffle maker (and Belgian waffles aren’t quite what I wanted). So finally, I gave in and bought a cheap wafflemaker from Amazon.com. And it works beautifully.

Fresh Blueberry Waffles

The trick to making good waffles in a waffle maker is to make sure that there’s plenty of fat in the batter. It makes them naturally nonstick and a breeze to pop in and out. Topped with a touch of butter and just a drizzle of blueberry syrup and a couple of blueberries, it was a little piece of heaven. And they freeze wonderfully. We’ve now got a packet of ready-made waffles to pop in the toaster when the mood hits.

recipe from Baking Bites food blog

1 3/4 c. all purpose flour
1/4 c. cornstarch
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
3 tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 c. buttermilk
2 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
6 tbsp. butter, melted and cooled
1 c. fresh blueberries, plus more for topping

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. In a medium bowl, whisk together buttermilk, eggs, vanilla and melted butter until smooth. Pour into dry ingredients and whisk until well combined. Stir in blueberries. Allow batter to rest for 5-10 minutes.

Cook dollops of waffle batter according to the directions of your iron. Serve immediately. Serves 6-8 (the number of waffles will depend on the size of your waffle iron).

  2. Looks yummy. We don't have a waffle iron, so we go to the Best Breakfast & Sandwiches in Westerville. They have excellent waffles. Everything else we have tried is awesome as well.

  3. I always make a double batch of waffles, freeze extras in a single layer on a cookie sheet, and store in a ziploc after frozen. I pop them in the toaster oven for a few minutes to warm up when I want a quick meal of waffles. They aren't quite as good as fresh but are much cheaper and healthier than Eggo.

  4. what kind of waffle iron did you buy? I have always wondered if the cheap ones work as well as others.

  5. I bought this one from Amazon: Cuisinart WMR-CA Round Classic Waffle Maker<img src="http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=nutsandberrie-20&l=as2&o=1&a=B00006JKZN&quot; width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;" />

    I've found that the cheap one works just as well as an expensive one, as long as there is adequate fat in the batter to make it nonstick. :) This coming from someone who has a fairly pricey Belgian waffle maker as well.

  6. Man those look good. I only wish Blueberries were on sale right now. I love all breakfast foods that include Blueberries.
