It's Sunday morning and time for breakfast. You have a fresh carton of blueberries begging to be put to good use. What better way to use them than to whip up some homemade blueberry waffles? Now all you need is the perfect blueberry waffle recipe. What a tradition the waffle is. After all, even the Ancient Greeks made waffles. In the middle ages coats of arms and religious designs were part of the waffle iron pattern. The pilgrims brought their own waffle recipe from Holland to this country.
You can take the easy way out and make waffles using prepared mixes like Bisquick or Aunt Jemima. Making waffles from scratch isn’t that difficult. There are more ingredients and it may take 10 minutes longer but the end result is so much better. Treat those fresh blueberries with respect and use this delicious recipe.
Before you get started let’s talk about what style waffle iron to use. Fresh blueberries will undoubtedly pop while the waffles are cooking. Even though these waffles aren’t from the recipe that comes from Belgium, it is best to use a regular waffle iron with shallower squares than a Belgian-waffle iron that has larger, deeper squares. These squares won’t be able to keep the berries together.
1-3/4 cups flour
1 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
1-1/2 cups buttermilk
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
6 tablespoons of butter that has been melted and then cooled
1 cup fresh blueberries*
*It is always best to use fresh blueberries. Frozen berries contain water and could end up making your waffles too moist in the middle.
1. Whisk together the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
2. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, and melted butter until the mixture is smooth.
3. Pour this into the dry mixture and whisk until they are combined thoroughly.
4. Stir in the blueberries. Let the batter sit for about 10 minutes to rest.
5. In the mean time, preheat the waffle iron and spray it with cooking spray.
6. Put about 1 cup of batter onto each section of the waffle iron and close it.
7. Cook until they are golden grown. This should take 3 to 4 minutes.
The waffles should be served warm with either syrup or a blueberry sauce.
If you have left over blueberries, you can whip up a warm blueberry sauce to pour over you waffles instead of syrup. A surprisingly good variation to this recipe is to replace the 1-1/2 cups of buttermilk with 1 cup of regular milk and 1 cup of sour cream. Buttermilk is not something everyone just happens to have in the refrigerator and this is a very tasty substitute.
This blueberry waffle recipe can also be used to make blueberry pancakes.
OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! Best waffles with blueberries EVER! Keep up the good work.
