fresh waffles w/ blueberry compote!

This past week, my school had two two hour delays in a row because of icy roads, so I decided to use the extra time in the morning to not only sleep an extra hour, but to also make some fresh waffles! I’m not going to lie, I got pretty used to getting up at 8:30  (to go to school at 10) instead of 6:30 (to go to school at 8)! Since I was less grumpy those mornings to get up, I was in the mood to make some yummy waffles!

I decided to top the fresh waffles with a homemade blueberry compote along with some powdered sugar!

Here are the ingredients I used to make the waffle batter (keep in mind I only made these for myself, so this is one serving size):

  • 1/2 cup pancake mix
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk (I used 2%, but you can use skim)

I mixed all the ingredients together in a small bowl with a fork and added a pinch of cinnamon just for some extra flavor!

I heated up my waffle iron and greased it with a little bit of butter so the waffle wouldn’t stick to it when it cooked!

Then, I ladled the waffle mix on the iron, starting in the center of the iron and spreading it out circularly.

After that, I closed and flipped the waffle iron to the other side. I let it cook on medium low heat for about 4-5 minutes until it turned golden brown.

After 4-5 minutes, I opened the waffle iron and peeled off the waffle with a fork! You can see that greasing the iron prior helped a lot because the mixture did not stick to the iron!

I placed the cooked waffle on my plate and then began to cook my blueberry compote! Here are the ingredients I used:

  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

I began by melting the butter in a small saucepan.

Then I threw in the frozen blueberries and cooked and mixed those together until the blueberries defrosted and the sugar melted.

I also added a little bit of cinnamon and stirred that in!

Then I allowed the ingredients to simmer together on low heat for an additional 2-3 minutes.

Once the blueberry compote finished cooking, I poured it overtop the cooked waffle!

Then, for some added decoration, I “powdered” some powdered sugar on top of the waffle using a small tea strainer, as shown above!

I dusted the waffle with the powdered sugar and dove right in. It was a perfect treat because I usually don’t have enough time to make or eat waffles!

I hope you have some extra time in the morning one day to try and make these waffles! They go well with coffee because the waffle is really sweet!
