Have a Happy National July Belongs to Blueberries Month with Blueberry Waffles!

To me, blueberries and lemons go hand in hand, but if you aren't a lemon lover, just omit the lemon zest, or use a smaller amount.

Blueberry Waffles
by Sharyl

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt
2 large eggs
½ cup vegetable oil
1 ½ cups whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup fresh blueberries
zest of 2 lemons 

Combine the dry ingredients – flour, sugar, baking powder and salt – in a large bowl. In a second large bowl, whisk the 2 eggs, vegetable oil, milk and vanilla. Mix well and pour into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Mix until combined. Stir in the blueberries and lemon zest.

Pour about 2/3 cup of batter into preheated waffle maker. Cook for about 4 minutes until golden brown.

Serve as is, with a side of blueberries (that’s how I ate mine!), or with maple or blueberry syrup, powdered sugar or whipped cream. Leftovers can easily be reheated in the waffle maker.
