Ingredients You’ll Need

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 3/4 cups buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup blueberries fresh or frozen

???? Frugal Tip

Frozen blueberries work very well in this recipe if you can find them for a good price. But fresh ones are often less expensive. Whichever you prefer is fine!

Let’s make it together

Making the waffle batter

Before you start mixing, preheat your waffle iron and spray it with non stick spray. Be generous to avoid any blueberries stuck to the surface. If you want to serve the waffles hot all at once, preheat your oven to 200 degrees to hold the cooked waffles.

You can make these two ways: the first way is to mix the dry ingredients in one bowl, the wet ingredients in another bowl, and then combine them. The next choice is to simply mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl and put the wet ingredients on top. Either way works just fine.

When you stir the waffle batter, it will be thick and there may be some lumps. That’s okay! As long as there are no dry spots of flour visible, you’ve mixed enough.

When the batter is the right consistency, go ahead and add in the blueberries and stir very gently.

Cooking and serving

Scoop out the batter with a measuring cup, using a little less than 1 cup for Belgian waffles, and a little less than that for a standard sized waffle maker. Cook them until they are golden brown and however crispy you would like.

As you finish the waffles, place them on a cooling rack over a baking sheet and pop them in the warm oven. This will keep them warm and crisp while you cook them rest.

When they are all ready, place them on plates and serve with butter, syrup, whipped cream, and more berries, if you’d like.

    Wow! These waffles were amazing and my family loved them. I keep powdered buttermilk on hand and it worked well. I also used GF flour (Bob’s 1-1). Definitely will make these again.
