Fresh Blueberry Waffles

These fresh blueberry waffles were fast and easy, two adjectives I’m liking more and more these days.

I whisked the dry ingredients the night before, in between White House Down and an episode of Gossip Girl (aah, what a lovely day of TV binging with the madre; she picked both of those, btw).

The next morning, I created a quick buttermilk of 1 1/2 T buttermilk topped with enough milk to reach 1 1/2 cups total (I used skim milk, but I’m sure whole milk would be much more delicious). I let that melange sit for a bit while I prepped the other wet ingredients.

The recipe yielded 12 1/3 cup waffles.

These fresh blueberry waffles were very light, yet they still had an alluring chew. The berries broke up the expanse of waffle, and added a nice tang.

As for later variations, I think adding toasted coconut or toasted sliced almonds to the batter with the berries would add an interesting nutty factor. I love the chocolate/blueberry combo, but am wary to trying chocolate chips or chunks in waffles again; on this note, I think subbing 1/4 cup flour for cocoa would be delicious. And if you want to be more virtuous, sub in white whole wheat flour. I think it depends on my mood. We’ll see.
