For the waffles:

For the Blackberry Compote:

  • 16 ounces fresh or frozen blackberries
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water if using fresh berries


  • Preheat your waffle iron.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the buttermilk, eggs, honey, and vanilla extract. Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and stir until the ingredients are just combined. Stir in the melted butter.
  • Grease the hot waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon out ½ cup of batter (or the amount recommended by the manufacturer's instructions) onto the hot iron. Use a spoon to smooth the batter almost to the edge of the grids. Close the lid and bake until browned and crisp.
  • In the meantime, make the blackberry compote. In a small saucepan, place blackberries, sugar, and 1 tablespoon water (if using fresh berries). Cook over medium high heat, stirring occasionally, until the berries become soft and juicy, about 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Serve waffles with blackberry compote and whipped cream, if desired.
  • Note-the waffles freeze well. Place cooled waffles in a freezer bag and freeze. To reheat, place waffles in the toaster.

    These look delicious but as another commenter said – the wet to dry ratio is very off. I followed the recipe exactly and the batter was extremely thin and soup-like. I had to add another almost full cup of flour to get the batter anywhere near a consistency that would work in a waffle iron. Otherwise love the idea of a cornmeal waffle!

    This is my go-to waffle recipe, thank you! We make them with coconut cream instead of milk: 1 can plus water/fresh lemon juice to equal 2 cups. We also sub 1/2 cup of almond flour for 1/2 cup of the wheat flour to up the protein content. Delicious!
