I personally enjoy eating pancakes or waffles for breakfast since it’s a quick and easy meal, especially when I’m rushing for work. Most of the time, I just make ordinary pancakes or waffles with butter and maple syrup. But then, I wanted to try something new with my usual breakfast, so I upgraded them. I ended up with these delicious blueberry waffles that completely satisfied my sweet tooth.
This blueberry waffle recipe is made special with fresh blueberries, buttermilk, and a bit of almond extract for that rich and subtle nutty flavor. I wholeheartedly enjoyed the juicy blueberries blending with the crispiness of the golden brown waffles. These blueberry waffles had the perfect balance of sweet and tart. Each bite was such a delight that I just had to make more!
These were easy to make since I had a waffle maker. If you have those bigger sized waffle irons, then try making blueberry Belgian waffles. This type of waffles have larger and deeper grid patterns that are great for holding any toppings. Either way, any size will do! I used fresh blueberries for this recipe, but feel free to use frozen blueberries as well. Both will taste amazing when blended into the waffle batter.
After cooking it in the waffle iron, I paired these with the usual butter and maple syrup combination. However, the next time I made these blueberry waffles, I included some to lightly drizzle on top. It’s definitely another delicious variation that I enjoyed and recommend as well. For a simpler topping variation, I also tried them with whipped cream and powdered sugar.
These blueberry waffles have definitely become a wonderful upgrade to my breakfast routine that I bought more blueberries. Next time, I’m not just making waffles but some homemade too!
