The Best Blueberry Waffles

by Lorena

These are the best blueberry waffles and they will definitely become your favourite. They have all the good things of a classic waffle with that slight acidity from the blueberries. They even become better with maple syrup!

How to make Blueberry Waffles

Blueberry waffles are basically classic waffles with blueberries added to them. Try to use small blueberries, and if you get large ones, it’s best to cut them in half. You can also use frozen blueberries if you like. Blueberries generate pockets of tang and sweetness within the waffles, which is extremely tasty. I think they’re hands down the best waffle flavour out there. I’m in love.

How long does it take to cook Waffles?

Blueberry waffles need 4-5 minutes to cook to perfection.

In an electric waffle iron, it will be 4 minutes from start to finish. In a stove-top or Belgian waffle iron, it would be 2 minutes over medium heat per side. It´s very important to preheat your waffle iron before using it. That will make your waffles come out golden. If your waffle iron is electric, give it about 5 minutes to preheat before cooking them. On the other hand, if you have a stove-top waffle iron, preheat both sides for 5 minutes over medium heat. If you’re looking for a waffle iron, I recommend my Nordic Ware Belgian Waffle Iron, it’s the best and it lasts an extremely long time.

How to serve Blueberry Waffles

You have many possibilities when serving Blueberry Waffles. You definitely want to serve them with maple syrup, honey or another type of syrup you like. The taste of these waffles is not particularly sweet so you can pour as much syrup as you like without being overly sweet. You can also serve them with fruits and nuts, that’s always delicious! If you like, you can also dust them with icing sugar. Finally, a bit of whipped cream, greek yoghurt or even ice cream is never frowned upon.

How to achieve golden and fluffy waffles

For waffles to be golden, the key is to preheat your waffle iron. For them to be fluffy on the inside, we use two aeration methods in this recipe. The first is chemical aeration brought by the use of baking powder. When cooked, they generate gas and the Blueberry Waffles become fluffy. On the other hand, we also have physical aeration from the egg whites that are whipped to incorporate air into them. The final result is a golden yet fluffy waffle that absorbs syrup perfectly.

How to keep waffles warm

If you’re making several Blueberry Waffles, you want to keep the first warm as you make more. For that, it’s best to place them in a preheated oven at 100C/212F to keep them warm. Ideally, you want to use a baking tray with a cooling rack on top to prevent them from sweating and thus changing their texture. It’s the same method I use when making Brioche French Toast.

For the waffles

  • 250 g all-purpose flour
  • tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 200 ml milk whole, skimmed or vegetable, at room temperature
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract or vanilla essence
  • 2 egg yolks at room temperature
  • 120 g melted unsalted butter cooled to room temperature
  • 2 egg whites at room temperature
  • 100 g blueberries if they're big ones, cut them in half

For cooking

  • Vegetable oil I used Canola

Serving options

  • Maple syrup
  • Butter


For the waffles

  • Mix the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder using a whisk.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the milk, vanilla, butter and egg yolks. When separating the eggs, transfer the yolks straight into the milk so that it doesn't generate a skin, which happens when it's in contact with air.
  • Make a hole at the centre of the dry ingredients and pour the liquids into it. Whisk them together starting at the centre and slowly incorporating the dry ingredients from the sides.
  • Whip up the egg whites in a clean using an electric mixer or by hand with a clean whisk until you get soft peaks.
  • Incorporate the egg whites by folding them in using a spatula. First, fold in half of the egg whites, and then the rest.
  • Fold in the blueberries.

For cooking

  • Preheat the waffle iron for about 5 minutes.
  • Once hot, paint it with oil, making sure to go into the crevices.
  • Place about ¼ cup of dough onto the waffle iron and close it up. The exact amount will depend on the size of your iron. It will take 4-5 minutes to be ready. Don't open it up before this time or it will open in half. If you're using a stove-top waffle iron, it's 2 minutes per side over medium heat.
  • Once they're done you can freeze them for up to 3 weeks. Place them in a sealed container with baking paper between them so that they don't stick. To reheat them place them in the toaster!

For serving

  • Serve warm with butter and syrup.
