Easiest Blueberry Waffles

If you have a waffle iron, I am certain that you don’t use it enough, and you probably know this and feel guilty about it because maybe it was a gift or maybe it was an impulse buy, and it takes up a lot of space right? Well dust it off and remind yourself that waffle making can be super easy.

This recipe is not sophisticated. It’s a one bowl mix and there is no separating and whisking off the egg white or melting of the butter. You end up with soft and delicate waffles rather than crispy ones, but I think they are just as yummy that way. And the batter takes 5 minutes to prepare, including the time you spend rooting round for ingredients and measuring spoons, which isn’t a lot to ask of a Saturday morning.

Easiest Vanilla Blueberry Waffles

Yield: 2 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 150g flour
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 200 ml milk (I used almond milk)
  • 3 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • A couple handfuls of blueberries

Instructions

  1. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Whisk in the milk, egg, oil and vanilla. Throw in a couple of handfuls of blueberries (its a good idea to toss these in flour first so they don't make the batter any more moist), and then leave the batter to sit for 5 minutes while the waffle iron pre-heats.
  2. Pour into your waffle iron and cook as instructed.
  3. When they're ready, throw a few more blueberries on top and drizzle with syrup.
  4. Tuck in!

Notes

Note: Assuming you have a 4-waffle iron, it will be exactly the right amount of batter to fill it once. You could double it, triple it etc, and freeze leftovers (they reheat nicely in the toaster oven) But lets face it, on a Saturday morning that feels like a bit too much effort sometimes.
