2 cups all purpose unbleached flour
1 cup blueberries
1 and ⅔ cup buttermilk
⅓ cup melted butter unsalted
2 large organic free range eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp organic brown sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
dash of salt
whipping cream (optional)
a handful fresh blueberries
organic maple syrup
1 – Preheat waffle iron.
2 – In a sifter add flour, salt, baking powder, sugar.
3 – Sift dry ingredients into a large bowl, then add lemon zest.
4 – Melt butter and let cool a bit.
5 – In another bowl add eggs, buttermilk, vanilla, lemon juice, melted butter, and blend.
6 – Pour the wet ingredients a little at a time into the dry until mixed well. Add in blueberries
7 – Open waffle iron, place batter into the iron just to cover bottom plate. and gently mix.
8 – Close iron, turn over, and cook for 2 minutes (I usually set the iron to about a 5 to heat up then turn it to a 3 and ½ – 4 using the first waffle to gauge cooking time and heat).
9 – Take waffle out of iron.
10 – Place the waffle on a baking sheet in a 100° F oven to keep warm while cooking the rest of the batter.
11 – Serve waffles with a drizzle of organic maple syrup, a few blueberries, and a dollop of whipping cream (optional but delicious).
