We're Makin' Waffles: Orange and Blueberry Waffles

Monday, July 4, 2016

We've been making waffles all weekend. Friday, we hit up our local chicken and waffles restaurant, a Durham fave. Saturday we ate left overs and Sunday morning we made a cornbread waffle (this was the kids favorite) but I wasn't thrilled with them. But this morning we hit the waffle jackpot.  

Orange Blueberry Waffles

1.5 c milk
1.25 TBSP vanilla extract
2 egg yolks
4 egg whites
2 c AP flour
1/4 c sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 TBSP baking powder
1 stick (8 TBSP) salted butter

Optional * 2 TBSP orange zest
1/4 c fresh blueberries  

1. Combine wet ingredients (with the exception of your melted butter)
2. Sift dry ingredients into a large bowl
3. Whisk 4 egg whites to stiff peaks

4. Slowly pour wet ingredients (minus the butter) over your large bowl of dry ingredients, stir gently with wooden spoon.
5. Pour in melted butter and gently stir until combined
6. Fold in stiffened egg whites until fully incorporated (your batter may be slightly lumpy, thats okay)

7. Spoon your batter into preheated waffle iron, sprinkle each waffle with desired blueberries and orange zest, close iron. remove when waffle is complete. 

I topped our waffles with an orange honey butter prepared the day before. For this I combined the zest of half a navel orange 3 TBSP butter and 1/4 c. honey. I then simmered on low heat in a small saucepan for 30 minutes and stored in the refrigerator in a glass container, once cooled.
