Homemade Chocolate-Blueberry Belgian Waffles with "Presto Flipside" Waffle Maker

Print  Friendly and PDF
A few weeks ago I bought this Presto Flipside Belgian Waffle Maker from CSN Stores to try my hand at making homemade waffles.My son has been looking forward to home-made waffles ever since this package arrived at our doorstep.I am so happy with the purchase because this waffle maker makes some awesome thick Belgian Waffles that is crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside..just how a nice waffle is supposed to taste like. I used the same Krusteaz Pancake mix that I used for making my Butternut Squash Pancakes that I posted a couple of weeks ago but jazzed up the batter with some Dutch processed Cocoa Powder and frozen blueberries. And I topped my perfectly perfect pancake with cut-up banana, strawberries,blueberries and of-course a healthy drizzle of maple syrup. Yum-O!

Ingredients(For 3 Scrumptious Belgian Waffles):
  • 2 Cups Kruteaz Pancake Mix
  • 1-1/2 Cups + 2 Tbsp Skimmed Milk
  • 3 Tbsp Granulated Sugar (Add 1 Tbsp more if you like it really sweet)
  • 3-4 Tbsp Dutch-processed Cocoa Powder
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2/3 Cup Frozen Blueberries
Procedure:
  • Preheat the Waffle-maker for about 5 minutes.
  • Make the batter by mixing all the ingredients and stir enough to combine. Its okay if the batter is lumpy. Let it sit for about 5 minutes or so.Pour them into a measuring cup/batter bowl or any bowl that has a spout to conveniently dispense the batter.
  • Grease the insides of the waffle-maker with a oil dipped paper and pour about 3/4th of a cup of batter.
  • Close the lid and set the timer for 4 minutes.
  • Now flip the handle from right to left.
  • Cook the waffle for 4 minutes. The timer will beep when the time is up. There will be steam arising from the sides which pretty much stops around 4 minutes..If steaming hasn't stopped continue to cook for half minute - minute more.
  • Open lid and be ready to clap eyes on a perfect homemade waffle. Those purplish stains on the waffle are the nothing but blueberry stains. 
  • Use a steak knife to loosen the edges and lift the waffles.
  • Repeat the above steps for the remaining batter. Batter should be sufficient to make 2 more.
  • Top the warm waffles with choice of fruits and a healthy drizzle of maple syrup.
Nothing beats homemade waffles.So what are you waiting for? Hurry up and get yourself one from CSN Stores that has a wide selection of Waffle-makers.

Enjoy!
