Orange Berry Waffles

OJ Berry waffles (2)The other morning I decided to whip up some waffles for breakfast. It’s been awhile since I have pulled out the waffle iron and it was time. I was going to make whole wheat ones, but then realized I didn’t have any whole wheat flour. I wasn’t going to run to the store for it. So instead I pulled out the good ol’ Betty Crocker Cookbook and found the waffle recipe.

The whole wheat recipe I have on file calls for orange juice, which I happened to have, so I decided to substitute some for the milk in my batch. I also added some frozen berries. I was worried it would be a total fail. But they were really good. The orange juice was much stronger than I expected it to be and went well with the berries. Give it a try. I think you will be pleased.
