  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sifted cake flour
  • 1-1/2 cups whole milk
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature, well beaten
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-2/3 cups water
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 8 ounces frozen blueberries
  • 8 ounces frozen raspberries
  • Vanilla ice cream, optional


  1. Preheat waffle maker. Mix first 7 ingredients in order listed just until smooth. Bake waffles according to manufacturer’s directions until golden brown.
  2. Meanwhile, for topping, combine water, sugar, cornstarch and corn syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat until thickened. Remove from heat; cool. Stir in berries. Serve warm over waffles; if desired, add vanilla ice cream.
Test Kitchen Tip
  • As you can imagine, corn syrup isn't an ingredient Amish cooks would have available to them but it does give the sauce a velvety texture and consistency. You can certainly leave it out, just add additional sugar to your desired sweetness level.
  • Blueberries
    If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
