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.
Orange Berry Waffles
4 to 6 servings
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/4 cups milk
- 1/2 cup orange juice (use something good like Simply)
- 1/2 melted butter
- 1 cup berries (I used a mix of raspberries, blueberries and blackberries)
- Heat waffle iron. Spray with cooking spray if needed.
- In large bowl, beat eggs with wire whisk until fluffy. Beat in remaining ingredients except berries just until smooth.
- Gently fold in berries with a spatula or large spoon.
- Pour about a 1/2 cup batter onto center of hot waffle iron. (My iron is just a two square one, your’s may require more batter)
- Bake about 5 minutes or until steaming stops, follow your waffle irons instructions to make sure they are done.
- Carefully remove waffle and repeat with remaining batter.
- Serve with maple syrup if desired.
