Preparing your waffle batter with the blender gives the waffles a very light, airy texture. Not to mention, it makes clean up a snap since you use the same container to mix and pour. The addition of the cornmeal to the waffle batter gives these light waffles a little bit of crunch. Serve with syrup, blueberry jam or a nice fruit compote.
