I love fresh waffles, especially when they are a bit crispy and fresh off of the waffle iron. Both waffles and pancakes provide a nice way to enjoy both your garden and wild fruit preserves. I served these with my rosehip jelly and highbush cranberry compote. Make a full batch of the waffles as you can always pop the extras into the toaster for breakfast the next day.


2 eggs

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 tablespoon ground flax seed

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1-3/4 cups milk

1 tablespoon brown sugar

4 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat the waffle iron. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs until fluffy. Beat in the remaining ingredients until batter is smooth. Ladle some batter onto waffle iron (the amount depending on the size of your iron) and bake for about 5 minutes. Remove the baked waffles and place them into a warm oven until all waffles are baked. Serve immediately.
