  • 2 tablespoons Active Dry Yeast
  • 4 tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 cup warm Water
  • 6 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 2 cups Buttermilk
  • 2 cups Whole milk
  • 1 stick (4 ounces) Butter, melted
  • 4 large Eggs
  • 1 ¬ľ cups Frozen Blueberries¬†(frozen wild blueberries are small and work best in this recipe)
  • Butter - for cooking
  • Maple Syrup - to top


  1.  The night before: Place the yeast and sugar in a large mixing bowl (bowl needs to be very large as the dough will more than double overnight). Pour the warm water into the mixing bowl and give the mixture a quick stir. Let sit for 10 minutes, or until the yeast is bubbled and foamy. Add the flour, salt, buttermilk, milk, and melted butter to the bowl and mix with a wooden spoon until fully combined. Cover with a towel and place on the counter overnight (or for at least 8 hours).
  2.  In the morning: Crack the eggs into the risen batter and use a large wooden spoon to fold in. Place the frozen blueberries in a sieve and rinse. Place on a towel and gently move the berries around until any excess juice is absorbed (this will keep the berries from streaking the batter and will also keep the waffles from getting soggy). Add the blueberries to the batter and very gently fold in. Preheat a waffle iron. Brush butter over the inside of the iron and place a spoonful of batter inside (how much batter you need will depend on the size of your iron). Close the iron and cook until the waffles are a light golden brown. Remove waffles and repeat the process until all of the batter has been cooked. Serve waffles with maple syrup.
