Waffles with Blueberries

Lately, I am absolutely crazy about blueberries. Frankly, can you resist those bloomy blue beauties that through some kind of magic turn into the most gorgeous purple colour? While that they go through a change of flavour and get much more intense: a new dimension opens. The cardamom, coriander, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove boost the berries even more and finally the lime zest takes it to a whole new level! Actually, I haven't planned to post my breakfast, but it was such a hit that you must try it!

for the waffles:
100 g butter, softened

30 g sugar + 1 tablespoons
1 teaspoon vanilla paste
2 eggs
5 tablespoon cream
120 g flour

for the blueberries:
150 g blueberries

4-5 tablespoons elderberry syrup
3-4 pinches speculoos spice mixture
2 tablespoons sherry
zest of 1 lime

Cream together butter with sugar, add the egg yolks, vanilla paste and cream and whisk until it is well incorporated. In the meantime beat egg whites with sugar. Stir in sifted flour into the batter, then fold in the beaten egg white. Bake waffles in the hot waffle iron. Take half of the blueberries and bring to the boil together with the syrup, sherry and spice mixture and cook for 2-3 minutes, then stir in the rest of the bluberries. Season with freshly grated lime zest and serve warm with the waffles.

Spectacular! We don't get blueberries for another two weeks. We get to go out and pick the at the local farms for less than half the price of the grocery store.
