"Presented here is a good old fashioned but yet modern waffle that combines cornmeal and all-purpose flour that is filled with blackberries or boysenberries, though other berries of choice can be used depending on what's in season. I would imagine that frozen berries could be substituted, except that they will contain more moisture, therefore be careful and roll them in flour, prior to adding them to the batter."

  • When selecting the cornmeal, feel free to substitute white or blue cornmeal for the yellow cornmeal, depending on your preference.
  • When using frozen berries, roll them in flour prior to adding them to the batter to avoid too much moisture in the waffles.

  • Substitute coconut milk for the buttermilk for a dairy-free option. This substitution will make the waffles dairy-free and will add a subtle coconut flavor to the waffles.
  • Substitute almond flour for the all-purpose flour for a gluten-free option. This substitution will make the waffles gluten-free and will add a nutty flavor to the waffles.

Chocolate Chip Waffles Replace the berries with 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the wet ingredients.

We loved these waffles which are think are adaptable to other fruit choices -- I didn't have any berries so added 1 banana, sliced, and they were awesome waffles! We made 4 waffles - perfect for us and served with butter and syrup. Thanks for sharing!

Excellent! I loved the texture of the cornmeal in the waffles and the slight tang from the buttermilk. I tried to use the softest blackberries in the pint, because the fat berries made latching the waffle iron a bit difficult. But never mind, because the end result is wonderful! I did use a little drizzle of maple syrup, and think next time I'll just use a bit of honey. These were absolutely delicious and will be made again and again!
