Sunday Morning Cornmeal & Berry Waffles

Prep Time
Cook Time
Ready In

"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."

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!
