A few years ago, I received a donut pan for my birthday. Last year, my friend and former neighbor @allisonkimchi passed along another donut pan to me…and let’s not forget the two mini-donut pans I inherited, as well!
As this pandemic took hold, time spent at home turned into time spent in the kitchen. Though I’m not a huge sweets person, making homemade baked donuts satisfied any dessert craving I had. They’re so simple to whip up!
Well…I made too many donuts in the span of a month. I’m not sure if I ever want to see another donut again.
So now I’m hopping on the mini-waffle bandwagon!
Let us see how long it takes until I get sick of making multiple iterations of this. 😆
I received this Dash Mini Waffle Maker a few years ago at work during a very cutthroaty Cutthroat Santa years ago. I’ve gotta say, I’m quite impressed with its output! The waffles come out incredibly light and fluffy with the slightest crisp on the exterior.
Mini Blackberry Waffles
(Makes 8 waffles)
- 1 cup flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons melted butter or vegetable oil
- 1 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3/4 cup blackberries, roughly chopped
1.) Turn on waffle iron to heat.
2.) In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, sugar, and salt.
3.) If using butter, melt. Add milk, butter (or oil), milk, egg, and vanilla to dry ingredients, and mix to combine. Fold in blackberries until thoroughly incorporated.
4.) Lightly spray waffle iron with non-stick spray. Spoon 1/4 cup of waffle batter into waffle iron and close; cook waffle for approximately 1 minute or until it starts to turn a light golden brown. (Batter may be a slight blue color due to the blackberry juices!)
5.) Transfer waffles to a cooling rack; leaving them on a plate will cause condensation beneath, resulting in a soggy bottom!
6.) Freshly-made waffles can be quickly reheated in a toaster for two minutes or microwave for 10 seconds. If you have leftovers, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and place in an airtight container in your freezer. To reheat, turn oven to 350 degrees, unwrap and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, and heat up for 10 minutes.
