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!
- 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.
