Try these Blueberry Eggnog Belgian Waffles when you want something a little different. Plump fresh blueberries inside an eggnog-flavored waffle, served with a dollop of sour cream and a Homemade Blueberry Syrup. A perfect choice for Christmas morning! 

As a girl growing up, my mom made what is considered “American” waffles. You know the kind. Made in a square waffle iron that cooked up four little flat waffles. It wasn’t until I married that I was introduced to a Belgian waffle.

Belgian waffles are round and thick and have big, deep pockets perfect for filling up with your favorite syrup. They may also be lighter on the inside and also more crispy on the outside.

My mother-in-law went on a waffle-spree one winter and made Belgian waffles for the family on a regular basis. We doctored them up with a fresh fruit compote and whipped cream. They were so yummy.

This eggnog version is delicious as well. I found that I really liked the addition of sour cream with the homemade blueberry syrup. I hope you’ll enjoy them as well!

A Note About Eggnog

When it comes to buying eggnog, buy the best you can find. Years ago, I found this amazing eggnog at Walmart that came in a glass jar. It was the best eggnog I’d ever tasted (other than homemade.) Unfortunately they only carried it that one year, and I’ve never been able to find it again.

Promised Land Dairy - Limited Edition Eggnog

UNTIL this year. Guess what I came upon at my last shopping try to the Aldi store? Promised Land Dairy Eggnog! It’s so delicious! It no longer comes in a glass jar…but I found online some of their limited edition glass jars that dated back to 1997! How cool is that?!!

If you’re unable to find the Promised Land Eggnog, you can almost always find Southern Comfort Traditional Eggnog (in the black container). That gets my runner-up vote.

 

Instructions for Making This Recipe

If possible, set your oven on a “warm” setting. Preheat a Belgian waffle iron. Gather your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table. Rinse and drain fresh blueberries in a small colander.

Using a large batter bowl, sift together all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, ground cinnamon, and freshly ground nutmeg.

In another bowl, combine large eggs, eggnog, and melted butter. Add to dry ingredients, mixing until blended. Carefully fold in drained blueberries.

Cuisinart' - Double Belgian Waffle Iron

Bake in a preheated Belgian waffle iron according to product directions.

Normally, I will spray my waffle maker with a cooking spray on both top and bottom. Then when the iron is hot and ready, I’ll spoon approximately 1/3 – 1/2 cup of batter in the middle of the waffle iron.

My iron has a light that shuts off when the waffle is ready, approximately after 5 minutes of cooking. Lift the lid to see if the waffle is brown. If not, allow to cook for a little longer. But usually the light is very accurate.

Place cooked waffle on a baking sheet or directly on an oven rack to keep warm in the oven while the rest of the waffles cook. Repeat with the remaining batter.

Serve with sour cream and blueberry syrup. This recipe will make six 9-inch waffles.

 

Making Blueberry Syrup:

In a small saucepan, combine fresh blueberries, water, and sugar.

Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and then reduce to a simmer. Continue to cook on low for 8-12 minutes until syrup begins to thicken, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon.

Remove saucepan from heat and stir in butter and lemon juice. Syrup will thicken as it cools. To serve, pour syrup into a small pitcher or creamer container. This will make a little more than a cup of syrup.
