Waffles with Blueberry Compote

February 1, 2015 | 4 comments

After my recipe for the BEST WAFFLES EVER, you wouldn’t expect a high school girl to need another waffle recipe, especially a high school girl who is having the most stressful semester in her life right now and doesn’t have time to do anything. But that is precisely why I need another waffle recipe.
You see, the other one requires so much preparation and time that I don’t have right now that I am practically a nervous wreck trying to make waffles (aka have a life), finish homework, and do projects.
I wanted to make waffles that tasted just as perfect and delicious as the other waffles.
Um, yeah impossible feat. Baking powder will never be able to create the complex flavor of yeast. Oil (my attempt to make these kinda healthy), will never taste as good as a whole two sticks of butter. And of course time is the best remedy, but that is also what I am in most need of right now.
So I made these waffles. No planning ahead, no preparation, basically all you have to do is throw all the ingredients in a bowl, whisk, and cook. And I happen to think these waffles are THE BOMB.
Ever so slightly crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside. Oh and don’t get me started on the blueberry compote.

Okay so I know that blueberries aren’t exactly in season right now (it’s snowing up a STORM outside right now…), but you can always buy frozen ones. Anywho, this compote only takes 5 minutes to mix up (you can do it while cooking the waffles) and the crevices in the waffles are ABSOLUTELY PERFECT to take the sweet compote. A rogue sprinkling of powdered sugar (because the waffles themselves have no added sugars) and you have the most amazing, quick breakfast ever.


-These waffles can be made ahead of time. Just freeze them if you’re not going to eat them right away and reheat by putting in a toaster or microwaving until warm.

Waffles with Blueberry Compote
For the waffles
2 1/2 cup milk
1 tbsp lemon juice or any type of citrus juice
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup oil
3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp salt
For the blueberry compote
1 1/2 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

Mix all the ingredients for the waffles together and pour into a waffle pan. Cook according to manufacturer's directions.

For the blueberry compote, mix everything together over medium heat and cook until thick, about 5-10 minutes.

Serve with powdered sugar and/or syrup.

    I was thinking about making sourdough waffles (is it even possible?) and then I see this. I love waffles and I love blueberries even more. Blueberries are in season here now so this is a big win!

      Après le lycée, je vais aller à l’université, bien sûr ! Mais, je ne sais pas la matière principal que je vais choisir, et aussi, je ne sais pas l’université que je vais choisir… Alors, je pense que je ne sais pas beaucoup de chose de mon futur, mais j’ai trois années pour décider ! 😀
