Sunday Eats -

I've done the Swedish waffle on here a few times, but this weekend's take on it was our favorite so far.  They were made by replacing 1/4 of the flour with stone-ground cornmeal, adding a dash of vanilla, and cooking it an extra 15-20 seconds so the edges got all crispy like the edges of cornbread taste like when they are cooked in a cast iron skillet.  They were SO good.

You WILL need a Swedish waffle iron to bake these up extra thin (unlike Belgium waffles).  I have the Chef's Choice 840 ($69) and I've been really happy with it. I got mine from Amazon The heart-shaped Swedish waffles are a staple around here and on really hot days we have them for dinner with a little bacon and fresh fruit.  It also makes a super delicious thin brownie dessert.
MMMM, waffles . . . .

Cornmeal Swedish Waffles

Mix in a medium bowl in order given:

3/4 cup flour (if using gluten-free flour add 1/2 tsp Xanthan gum)
1/4 cornmeal
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
dash of salt
a small splash of vanilla extract (about 1/8 teaspoon)
3/4 cup skim milk
1 egg
3 Tablespoons melted butter, cooled slightly

Whisk until all ingredients combined - there will be a few small lumps in it - that's normal.

Using a 1/3 cup measure (or following your iron's directions) pour batter in the waffle iron sprayed with a little nonstick spray. You'll be tempted to add more batter.  DON'T.  Trust me, you'll have a mess. I love this waffle iron as it beeps when they are done, they turn out perfectly (I always cook a few extra seconds though), and the waffle iron is super easy to clean if you don't overfill.

I served with  a choice of maple syrup or lingonberry syrup


  1. Waffles make everyone smile. Not only tasting delish, they make you feel good too. LOVE the heart shape version!

  2. Those must be so tasty. It looks like Abby definitely approves.

  4. they are a sweet childhood memory... my granny made them if we were sad or if we had bruised knees or a shiner or a bad grade in school ;O)))
