Almost once a week, we have breakfast for dinner. To be honest, it might be my favorite night of the week. Why? Because the kids will actually eat the dinner I make without a fuss and I get to make ONE meal instead of THREE. Plus, I love breakfast foods too.

Last week, I made homemade waffles for the kids and they totally gobbled them up. The two-year old out-ate us all! (Those of you who know him will not be surprised by this.) I was pretty low on groceries, but did have blueberries and lemons on hand (a favorite flavor combo here at B&B…see here and here), so ran with that.

Blueberry-Lemon Waffles


Makes 4-6 waffles, depending on waffle iron size.

2 cups of flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tbsp sugar
2 eggs
1 3/4 cup of milk
2 tbsp melted butter (cooled)
1/2 cup roughly chopped blueberries
2 tsp lemon zest


Prepare your waffle iron. Heat to medium.

Sift dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl, mix milk, eggs, and melted butter. Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients together. Gently fold in blueberries and lemon zest.

Pour batter into waffle maker. Cook until risen, and lightly browned. Repeat.

Top with blueberries, powdered sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice. Enjoy!
