Blueberry waffles with vanilla whipped cream recipe
A typical dish in Belgium, the Netherlands and northern France, waffles are also a speciality of the Aosta Valley and French-speaking Switzerland. In addition to wheat, which is the most common ingredient, there are also waffles made with corn (as in Burgundy) or potatoes (in the English-speaking countries).
