Ingredients

  • 2 cups unbleached AP flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon lavender extract (optional – for deeper lavender flavor)
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup nonfat, plain yogurt
  • 1 1/2 cups skim milk
  • 2 teaspoons loose leaf earl grey tea (or 2 earl grey tea bags)
  • 1 teaspoon dried lavender buds
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

Instructions

  1. Scald milk on microwave or on the stove. Remove from heat. Add lavender buds and earl grey tea leaves and let steep for about 5 minutes. Strain into a container and set aside to cool.
  2. Preheat a waffle iron. Prepare with cooking spray.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugars together.
  4. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together egg yolk, strained and cooled milk, vanilla extract, lavender extract if using, yogurt, and softened butter together, until completely mixed.
  5. Pour the liquid mixture into the flour mixture, add the blueberries, and stir until just combined.
  6. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Gently fold into waffle mixture until just combined.
  7. Bake in waffle iron according to manufacture’s instructions (should take about 4-5 minutes to come out nice and browned.)
  8. Top with a pat of butter and a drizzle of honey if desired. Serve immediately.
