So in my family a phantom memory is now known as a "blueberry pancake" memory.
On a recent morning, I found myself rolling in fruit. Chris and I picked six pints of raspberries. Then Chris went to the grocery store to pick up more canning materials for me and spotted blueberries and blackberries on sale. He bought a few boxes and we were stocked up.
I decided to use the fruit and some homemade jam to spruce up some basic waffle mix for breakfast.
Because what's better than homemade Belgium waffles? How about blueberry waffles? Or apple cinnamon waffles? Or raspberry waffles?
All of the above! Whip these up on a Sunday morning and you'll be the king or queen of the kitchen. You're building memories, baby!
1. Prepare your basic waffle recipe based on directions on the box.
2. Add in some fancy ingredients: 1/2 cup blue berries, or a 1/3 cup apple butter or 1/3 cup homemade raspberry jam.
4. Spoon into your waffle maker. Be sure not to overfill*, or else your waffles will come out funky. *I buried those messed up ones at the bottom of the stack. Don't worry they still taste good!
5. Serve fruit on the side. Or serve syrup on top!
