Raspberry Waffles

Instead of using milk or buttermilk in waffles, I decided to puree some raspberries and use them as the main liquid ingredient.

I really didn't expect to end up with thick, puffy waffles, but these were some of the thickest, puffiest ones I've made to date (we don't have a Belgian waffle maker, so our waffles tend to be relatively thin but still delicious). Go figure.


I really can't figure out why people buy waffle mix because this really isn't any harder and is so much tastier. Perfect for a weekend brunch!
