On my way to 100 recipes in 100 days. Here is recipe 37.
We really like breakfast food. And I happened to have a bunch of blueberries just waiting to be eaten…..and we had been eating them for days already.
A few tips: If you use frozen berries, do not thaw them before adding them to the batter. Also, you will notice that in this waffle recipe, I have also instructed you to beat the egg whites separate from the rest of the batter. This is a real waffle secret. I promise you will notice a difference and your waffles will be gourmet.
My husband really likes fruity syrups. If he has a choice between maple and mixed berry, there is no question what he will choose. This syrup was very quick to make and a real treat for my girls as they will eat anything with berries in it. It was not such a treat to clean of Nora’s light pink pajama top (and bottoms, and socks, and legs, and….)
