Description

These cornmeal waffles have an interesting texture and flavor, which is complimented well by the tangy, blackberry compote.


Ingredients

Scale

Blackberry compote:

  • 2 cups blackberries
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp lemon juice

Waffles:

  • ¾ cup stone ground yellow corn meal
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted plus additional for greasing waffle iron

Instructions

  1. Make compote: Combine berries, sugar and salt in a small saucepan. Turn heat to medium. Stir occasionally until berries release juices and mixture starts to bubble, about 3-5 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high and boil 5-6 minutes or until berries are softened and juices begin to thicken. Dissolve cornstarch in lemon juice and add to pan. Stir to combine and allow to thicken for 1 minute. Keep warm.
  2. Make batter: Combine flours, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Combine milk, egg and butter in another bowl. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, stirring just to combine. Do not over-mix. Allow batter to rest for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Cook waffles & serve: Heat waffle iron. Grease iron, ladle in batter and cook according to manufacturer’s directions. For my iron, I scoop about ½ cup batter per waffle. Repeat process with remaining batter. Serve waffles with blackberry compote and a pat of softened butter, if desired. Enjoy.
