I should probably change the name of this blog to Waffle Party because we sure do love our waffles! Monday I said I would let you all know how my coronation grape waffles turned out and well...they were amazing!! I'm making them again for Sunday brunch tomorrow. I'm writing down this recipe for my own personal reference because you know the rest of my grape stash is going towards these waffles. It's very similar to my blueberry lemon buttermilk recipe, but I changed a couple of things. I can't wait until summer so I can hoard more of these delicious grapes.
Coronation Grape Buttermilk Waffles With Lemon
2 eggs, seperated
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup unbleached flour
2 tsps finely grated lemon zest
2 tsps baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp raw sugar
1 heaping cup fresh or thawed corontation grapes
- Preheat your waffle iron.
- Whip the egg whites until stiff, set aside.
- In a large bowl, mix the egg yolks, buttermilk, vanilla and melted butter.
- In a seperate bowl, mix together the flours, lemon zest, baking powder, salt and raw sugar.
- Mix the dry ingredients into the wet. Gently fold in the egg whites.
- Gently fold in the grapes.
- Lightly oil your waffle iron and cook according to your waffle irons cooking instructions. Oil as needed because this is a thicker batter.
- Serve with pure maple syrup or enjoy plain. Leftovers can be stored at room temperature and enjoyed later.
