Blue Corn Waffles

Blue Corn Waffles

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 and 1/2 cups blue corn meal (as used for tortillas)
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 and 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs - separated
  • 6 Tablespoons melted butter or margarine
  • maple syrup - for topping
In a bowl, mix the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, soda and salt.

In another bowl, mix butter with egg yolks and 1/4 cup of melted butter. Pour liquids into dry mixture, stirring to moisten well.

Whip egg whites until they hold stiff peaks; fold into batter.

Bake in a waffle iron set on medium high heat or in an electric one set at medium high (375 degrees). Brush grids with melted butter; half fill with batter,spreading slightly. Close iron; bake until waffle is golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes.

Serve hot with butter and syrup.

You won't feel blue as you eat these faintly blue-tinted waffles. The color comes from blue cornmeal - the same ingredient used to make festive tortillas.

Finally found blue corn meal after searching for months. I'm going to make this recipe over the weekend. I'll write back soon and let you know how it went.
