Recipe: Orange whole-wheat waffles with yogurt and fresh berries

By: Betty Rosbottom
Fresh orange juice and zest add a clear, refreshing accent to these golden-brown waffles, which are prepared with a light version of whole-wheat flour. Dollops of Greek yogurt sweetened with honey and fresh seasonal berries replace the more typical garnishes of maple syrup and butter.

Orange whole-wheat waffles
  • 2¼ cups/285 g white whole-wheat flour (see note)
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1¼ cups/300 ml whole milk
  • ½ cup/120 ml freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 5 tsp packed grated orange zest
  • 6 tbsp/85 g unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled

Yogurt topping

  • 1 cup/240 ml plain Greek-style yogurt
  • 4 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp grated orange zest, packed

  • Fresh raspberries, strawberries, or blueberries

1 For the Orange Whole-Wheat Waffles: Preheat a waffle iron (and, if you plan to hold the waffles until serving time, preheat the oven to 200 degrees F/95 degrees C).

2 In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together the milk, orange juice, egg yolks, and orange zest. In a third bowl, beat the egg whites until firm, but not stiff.

3 Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the milk mixture, blending gently only until the ingredients are combined. Add the butter in a slow stream, continuing to blend until the butter is incorporated. Gently fold in the egg whites.

4 For the yogurt topping: In a small serving bowl, whisk together the yogurt, honey, and orange zest.

5 Pour ½ cup/120 ml of the batter (or more, depending on the size of your waffle iron) onto the waffle iron and, using a metal spatula or table knife, spread the batter to within ½ in/12 mm of the edge. Close the cover and cook approximately 3 minutes, or until crisp and golden brown. (If your waffles aren’t crisp, even after a “ready signal” has sounded, continue to cook them, watching carefully, until crisp and golden. If not serving immediately, place the waffles in a single layer on a baking sheet in the preheated oven while you finish with the remaining batter.)

6 Serve the waffles topped with a generous dollop of the yogurt mixture and garnish with some fresh berries.

Prep time: 25 minutes

Makes about six waffles.

Note: King Arthur Flour sells an unbleached white whole-wheat flour, which is available in most grocery stores. It’s lighter in color than traditional whole wheat and boasts a milder, sweeter flavor. If unavailable, use half whole-wheat and half white flour.
