Put the Wagons in a Circle

I'm on vacation for a week! The gun cleaning post and a some others are saved to automatically post so come on back! Friends will be holding down the Range with Barkley and Brigid, Jr. and I made plans to meet up out West to see what kind of trouble we can get into.

To start off the vacation - corn waffles.

Good - but they're needing something. Blueberries.


BY THE WAY - MY RECIPES ARE ALL UP AS SINGLE POSTS FOR PRINTING ON MY SIDEBAR. ENJOY!

Corn Waffles, mmmm.

Saved a recipe from one of the last dead-tree numbers of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, for corn pancakes, obviously NOT my mother's recipe, but if I get a chance...

Corn Waffles - Light and Crisp, a good base for about anything, from delicate fruit to (hold onto your arteries) fried chicken cutlets and cream gravy.

Cornmeal Waffles

1 ¼ cup white whole wheat flour
3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tsp sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
2 cups buttermilk
5 T butter, melted and cooled OR 1/3 c vegetable oil

Sift flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt together in a large bowl.

In another bowl whisk together eggs, buttermilk, and 3 T oil. Add to flour mixture and whisk just until combined. (Very important, do not overmix. Waffle batter should be slightly lumpy.)

Meanwhile, Preheat your waffle iron and turn your oven to 200°F.

When waffle iron is preheated, oil lightly. Spoon batter into prepared waffle iron and bake per the directions on your maker (mine is easy, green light comes on, DONE).

If you are making a bunch of these, keep in heated oven on an oven proof plate or pan until the rest are cooked. Do not butter or apply any topping until ALL of the waffles are cooked.

Brigid,

These look fantastic! The last picture with the blueberries in the waffle is down right sinful . . . . . Forgive me Lord for I shall sin

Have a splendiferous week out west, Brigid. May you find your loved ones well and happy.

I learned that, yes, one can make blueberry waffles in the waffle iron if one is willing to clean up the exploded blueberry mess. That's what I love about baking--something is bound to blow up eventually!

Your method of using the blueberries as a topping appears to be much more kitchen friendly.
