Fluffy Belgium waffles layered with creamy milk chocolate chips, juicy blueberries and crunchy Texas Pecans
Blueberries are small round berries that have a sweet, tart and mildly acidic taste. They are often firm with a softer inside filled with the juice of the berry.
Blueberries make a great addition to many breakfast dishes since they are low in calories and bursting with antioxidants. Sweet or tart blueberries add a little mines of exploding flavor with each bite.
Milk chocolate and fruit go hand in hand. Wrap it around a waffle and call it breakfast. Milk chocolate is a great chocolate to use for a tarter berry like blueberries.
When selecting a chocolate to pair with your fruit try heading the opposite directions of each other. If you were to make a nice sweet strawberry waffle try a semi or dark chocolate, Mashed cranberries? A sweet milk chocolate is more ideal. The sweeter the fruit the more you can fall back on the sweetness in the chocolate. Opt for a semi-sweet for a nice balance of the two.
Pecans make the waffle batter super aromatic.
Once the waffle batter is added to the hot waffle iron the batter begins to expand and fluff edge to edge. While the waffle is fluffing and crisping the pecans will lightly surface so that they have direct contact with the iron. The pecans toast creating a super nutty toasted waffle.
Waffle battle is simple you can either make it from scratch or use your favorite mix. When making waffles that have more ingredients add them towards the end so that they don’t mash or break up. Once added give the batter one or two final stirs then do not mix the batter anymore.
TIPS & TRICKS FOR THE BEST Blueberry & Chocolate Crunchy Pecan Waffles
Preparing the batter
separate the wet and the dry ingredients when preparing the batter. make sure to give the dry ingredients a nice stir prior to adding the liquid so that all the baking powder, salt and sugar has time to distribute. add the wet into the dry to keep the batter fluid.
cooking the waffles
when prepping your waffle iron make sure you add the batter once the maker has heat up completely. remember to spray non stick cooking spray to make the transition between waffles easier. if you don’t have any cooking spray, butter or margarine can also be melted into or brushed inside of the maker. flip the waffle iron once it had 20 seconds in the waffle maker so that both sides are perfectly fluffy and crispy.
make this recipe into pancakes
waffles and pancakes are pretty interchangeable. waffle recipes tend to have a pinch more baking soda or baking powder than pancakes. that small pinch gives them a higher rise and crisper crust. that small pinch won’t effect the quality in pancakes,
to use this recipe for a pancake recipe simply follow the steps but instead of a waffle iron stick to the griddle. when making pancakes with chocolate on the griddle just watch the temperature because sometimes the chips can burn.
serve this recipe up warm straight from the waffle iron. once removed from the waffle iron immediately top the waffle with room temperature butter, add any extra additional leftover toppings like blueberries, chocolate chips and pecans and finally a small drizzle of maple to bring it all together.
