Blueberry Waffles with Blueberry Syrup


On my way to 100 recipes in 100 days. Here is recipe 37: Blueberry Waffles with Blueberry Syrup!

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….)
