"I had about 1 1/2c of storebought blueberries left, so thought I would give this recipe a try. I garnished ours up with a scoop of light cool whip, then drizzled them with some failed strawberry freezer jam (very tasty as strawberry syrup though!). I love the hint of orange in these. I fresh squeezed it from the orange I zested. I have a 4 square waffle maker and mine made 8 nice waffles.

I did mess up the recipe, but it seemed to work out ok, I misread the ingrdients as 1/2c each of the milk and oj, and it was actually 1/4c."
