It’s always this time every year when it’s blueberry season in Maine. It’s not a long season, so I make sure that my freezer is stocked up. Maine blueberries are small and sweet, unlike it’s New Jersey cousin who is bigger. Every year I tell myself that I am not going to run out of blueberries. I have so many new ideas for baking. Make sure you check out my recipes for my award winning Blueberry Skillet Cake (It’s like an upside down blueberry cake) and Blueberry Muffins, they are made with brown butter and have a crumb top, so perfect!
So when Pop’s wants to make his famous Griddlecakes, I hold on to my precious blueberries and tell him, there are so many recipes I would like to try, Blueberry Waffles being one of them, he agrees! Light, fluffy, blueberries bursting in your mouth, good morning delicious! Please use real Maine Maple Syrup on your blueberry waffles if you have it, you will be so happy that you did!
