Blueberry Buttermilk Waffles

Clear, crisp, frigidly cold mornings after a snowstorm call for a homey, comfort food breakfast or brunch. As I sat down at my desk this morning, I thought, “Waffles. I need waffles.” And not just any waffles. I want Blueberry Buttermilk Waffles. As my husband was shoveling snow, I was making waffles!

Blueberry Buttermilk Waffle Cooking Tips

In the recipe ingredient list, there are two measurements for the buttermilk. Using fresh blueberries calls for 2 cups and using frozen blueberries calls for 1 3/4 cups. This is because as the frozen blueberries thaw, they will make the batter wetter.

My Blueberry Waffle recipe is almost identical to this one. The only difference is that one uses milk and this one uses buttermilk. That slight change changes the amount of milk used because buttermilk is thicker than regular milk.

Coating the blueberries with flour will allow the berries to stay suspended in the batter & not sink to the bottom.
