Patriotic Waffle

Patriotic Waffle

Happy Fourth of July to you…some people might be grilling; some lifeguards might be working…there is probably some fourth of July road race in your area (or maybe Patriotic aerobics…)

As for me, I’m doing a road race and traveling.

Living the dream.

I always thought it would be cool to make a Fourth of July Patriotic Waffle.  I’ve made other interesting waffles…I didn’t have any criteria for it, just that the Patriotic Waffle should be red, white and blue.   I even brainstormed of various red, white and blue foods I could use.  White ended up being hardest, but yogurt made that easy.


Patriotic Waffle Ingredients (i.e., Blueberry Pomegranate Waffle): 

2/3 cup flour (all-purpose flour, wheat flour…)

¾ cup pomegranate juice (other red ideas included: cranberry, strawberry, and cherry)

1 tablespoon oil

1 tsp baking powder

1 cup blueberries

Patriotic Waffle Recipe:

  1. Preheat and heat up your waffle maker
  2. Mix all dry ingredients  in a large mixing bowl
  3. Add wet ingredients (including pomegranate juice) together and mix in a separate mixing medium bowl.
  4. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
  5. Pour waffle batter into your hot waffle iron and cook until golden red.
  6. After cooked, put on a plate and add a layer of melted butter, maple syrup, and greek yogurt.

So yes, if you wanted to impress your friends with a patriotic waffle (or pancakes) then you should go this route.  Impress your friends with a 4th of July, American Flag waffles, Patriotic Waffle!

If you want to go a slightly more fun route for your Patriotic Waffles add whipped cream.


Question for you:
