waffles with blackberry syrup/jam



when i got my bountiful basket (i know your going to get sick if hearing/reading me say/type that) it had blackberries.. growing up as a kid my favorite kind of jam was blackberry.. so i decided yumm waffles with fresh blackberries would be a nice suprise for pete and shell sunday morning..

waffle mix

prep time: 5 minutes
cooking time: 4-6 minutes
servings: approx. 6-8 waffles

ingredients:

1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 egg whites
1 3/4 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup conala oil
2 egg whites
chocolate chips (optional)

in a medium mixing bowl stir together the dry ingredients.. make a well in the center.. in another bowl mix the yolks, milk and oil slightly.. add yolk mixture to the well in the dry mixture.. stir until moistened.. (will be lumpy) in a another small bowl whisk egg whites until frothy and peaks begin to form.. gently fold in the whites to your other mixture.. don't over mix.. spoon your batter into your waffle maker.. and cook according to directions on the maker.. i think mine is 4-6 minutes..whenever the little red light goes off.. serve with blackberry jam... (shell wanted the jam to be more of a syrup consistency so i added a little water and zapped it in the microwave for 30 seconds..) shell also wanted chocolate chips in hers.. if you do make them with chocolate chips be warned its hard to clean the chocolate out of all the little crevices of the waffle maker..



blackberry jam (i know its not a formal jam but shell made peanut butter sandwiches out of it and loved it..)

prep time: 5 minutes
cooking time: 30 minutes
servings: approx. 10

ingredients:

1 package of blackberries
1/4 cup sugar (or splenda)
2 tsp. corn starch
squeeze of 1/2 a lemon

in a small pot over medium heat add all ingredients.. keeping stirring to get everything mixed after about 10 minutes the blackberry's start to break down.. stir every 10 minutes until its all smooth and jam like texture.. put in a small mason jar and chill before serving..
