Buttermilk waffles with fruit powder

The cake mixture for these waffles has a secret ingredient which gives softness and fluffy texture: buttermilk. You can make them in classic version as plain and get yummy traditional waffles. I decided to try new way and added fruit powder (ground freeze-dried fruits) and the result was really impressive. Only one tablespoon is enough to get fantastic fruit taste and beautiful colour of waffles. I used freeze-dried blueberries and raspberries and my waffles tasted like fresh blueberries and raspberries. You need only a bit of icing sugar and fruity dessert is ready. Enjoy!

 

12 waffles

 

 Ingredients:

  • 1 ¾ cups flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¾ cups buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons fruit powder (I got 1+1 blue- and raspberries)

 

In a medium bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, soda and salt. In a separated bowl beat together buttermilk, eggs and melted butter. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and mix well until combined. At this point I divided the mixture to two bowls to have waffles in two tastes. I mixed one half with blueberry powder and the second with raspberry powder. You may have also waffles in only one taste by adding 2 tablespoons of one fruit powder to the whole mixture.

Set aside both mixtures for 5 minutes to rest. Preheat waffle iron and  grease according to manufacturer’s instructions.

Cook each batch of waffles for 6-7 minutes. Serve dusted with icing sugar.
