While more stormy weather is a drag, on the bright side, it won't be long before maple syrup season is upon us. In celebration of the Dark Days challenge and the darker days of winter and in anticipation of the sweeter days to come, I present you with Pumpkin Belgian Waffles with warmed Blueberry Maple Syrup:
|A Dark Days Treat for the Senses|
Pumpkin Belgian Waffles with Warmed Blueberry Maple Syrup
2 cups whole "white" flour or whole wheat flour
1/2 cup canola oil
1 3/4 cups milk
2 tbsp pumpkin butter (or apple sauce or jam)
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup wild blueberries
2 tbsp maple syrup
1. Heat waffle iron. Whip eggs by hand or in stand mixer until fluffy.
2. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until blended. Pour 2/3 cup in the middle of your waffle maker and cook about 3-4 minutes.
3. While waffles are cooking, in a small saucepan, combine blueberries and syrup and over medium heat, stir together and cook until sauce has thickened. Serve over waffles.
