Recipe For Blueberry Waffles

by Ben Cook

It really is Sunday morning and time for breakfast. You have a fresh carton of blueberries begging to be put to very good use. What superior strategy to use them than to whip up some homemade blueberry waffles? Now all you need will be the great blueberry waffle recipe. What a tradition the waffle is. Just after all, even the Ancient Greeks produced waffles. Within the middle ages coats of arms and religious designs had been element in the waffle iron pattern. The pilgrims brought their own waffle recipe from Holland to this nation.

You'll be able to take the easy way out and make waffles using prepared mixes like Bisquick or Aunt Jemima. Generating waffles from scratch is certainly not tough. There are additional ingredients and it may take 10 minutes more but the outcome is so much greater. Treat those fresh blueberries with respect and use this yummy recipe.

Before you start let's talk about what style waffle iron to utilize. Fresh blueberries will undoubtedly burst whilst the waffles are cooking. Despite the fact that these waffles aren't from the recipe that comes from Belgium, it's a good idea to utilize a regular waffle iron with not so deep squares than a Belgian-waffle iron which has bigger, deeper squares. These squares won't be able to keep your berries together.

What do you need

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 butter that has been melted and cooled

1 cup fresh blueberries*

*It is always best to work with fresh blueberries. Frozen berries contain water and could end up making your waffles too moist inside 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 inside 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 from the waffle iron and close it.

7. Cook until they're golden grown. This should take three or four minutes.

The waffles really should be served warm along with either syrup or a blueberry sauce.


If you have left over blueberries, you could whip up a warm blueberry sauce to pour over you waffles instead of syrup. A surprisingly superior 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 inside the refrigerator and this is a very tasty substitute.

This particular blueberry waffle recipe can also be used to make blueberry pancakes.
