I am fortunate to have four blueberry bushes in my back yard, and they supply me with fresh blueberries all summer long. This is one of the recipes that I use to help use up the massive amount of berries that I pick each summer.

I used buttermilk and I opted out of using blueberries in the actual waffle recipe only because I didn't want to clean up the mess of my waffle maker. I used Trop 50 orange juice in the sauce. Both the waffles and the sauce were outstanding.....my boys ate themselves silly and said this is my best waffle recipe EVER. The waffles turned out crispy on the outside and tender on the inside--perfect!

I didn't make the blueberry sauce as I felt like having syrup that day but this recipe was VERY bland and dull. Not enjoyable at all. They also did not stay crispy once out of the waffle maker. Sorry not a keeper in my books.

The sauce was great but the waffles were mediocre. I did add 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon. That made a big difference. It sweetened the waffles just a little bit (enough to add a little more flavor).

I have made about 5 waffle recipes recently searching for the perfect one for my new highly-rated waffle iron. I needed waffles that freeze well because I like to make a big batch and pull one out of the freezer everyone morning. I'm happy to say my search is over. I made this with chocolate chips and no sauce but I'm sure it's great with the blueberries as called for. Great hot and fresh and great from frozen too. Thanks Wendy L!

The waffles were a 2 star but the sauce was a definate 4.5! I can't tell what made the waffles so mediocre. Maybe some vanilla and a bit of sugar would help? But the sauce was definately awesome. I also used frozen organic blueberries since the fresh ones are out of season. I will probably find an alternate waffle recipe but still use the sauce.

The waffles earned 1 star but the sauce was outstanding. My 19 month old loves blueberries and was eating the sauce by the spoonfulls. Will definatly be making the sauce again but will serve will different waffles or pancakes.

The waffle has such a light and fluffy texture. I made the batter the night before and stored in fridge so I didn't have to wait in the morning. The sauce is just perfect. So thick and full of flavors. Leftover sauce went well on yogurt as well.

This waffle recipe really has a lot of potential. After reading a lot of the reviews I added 1T of sugar to the batter. I did not want bland tasting waffles. I used buttermilk and I beat the heck out of the egg whites until it was foamy frothy and stiff about 2 minutes. I added the egg whites to the batter and then the fresh blueberries last. I folded the blueberries gently into the batter. I scooped portions of the batter onto my waffle grill and cooked until it was golden brown. I ended up with 12 waffles. The waffle is pretty with the blueberries cooked right in. Some were oozing with its purple berry juices right out of the waffles- nice. The waffles itself tastes good with the addition of the sugar. However I strongly feel that the star of this recipe is the blueberry sauce! It is perfectly sweet with the right touch of honey and fresh blueberries. I love the addition of the fresh orange juice. The sauce is easy to prepare with a thick consistency. It is a smooth beautiful purple blueish color. Next time I may need to double the amount of sauce because it was just enough for 4 waffles. The waffles with blueberry sauce makes for a really nice presentation. Based on the original recipe I give it a 3 stars rating while my family's feedback is a 5 stars. With the addition of the 1T sugar plus the delicious blueberry sauce everyone raved about I feel it is more of a 4 star rating. I would make this again with my adjustments and even use the sauce for other recipes.
