Blueberry Cinnamon Waffles


Happy 2014 everyone.  It's been a bit quiet round these parts recently and for that I can only appologise.  One of my resolutions is to try and update my trusty blog more and not be so neglectful.  It's quite difficult to get excited about baking at home when you spend all day covered in frosting, but I'm turning over a new leaf.  Reignite that passion and lets get in that kitchen!



Now, I'm not one of these girls who start  new year with the mission of losing two stone and hitting the gym with a vengeance.  I'm the exact opposite, my gym membership remains unused and the scales are shoved to the back of my cupboard.  I'm a baker for Pete's sake, you should never trust a slender baker.  Instead of green juices and flax seed I've been waking up to these amazing blueberry and cinnamon waffles.  If I'm totally honest, these waffles aren't all that terrible for you.  They contain no sugar, butter or oil and are bursting with fresh blueberries.  I guess they're almost a health food.  Plus, you get to walk around with that smug 'I've had waffles for breakfast' swagger all morning; come at me world, I've had waffles.


Blueberry and Cinnamon Waffles

Ingredients:
250ml water
125ml sour cream
125ml fat free Greek yogurt
1/2 teaspoon cider vinegar
250g plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2tsp ground cinnamon
1tsp vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, beaten
150g blueberries, reserve some for decoration

Method:

Preheat your waffle iron (I use this one and couldn't recommend it enough).
In a large jug mix together the wet ingredients and set aside.  In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk together till you get a smooth batter.  

Cook on a greased waffle iron according to manufacturers recommendation, around 6 minutes for mine.  

Serve warm, pile with blueberries and drizzle with maple syrup. Feel ready to tackle the day ahead with appropriate gusto.
