As many of us know it by know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and there’s no better way to start your day with than a rich, tasty, healthy recipe, just like the sweet potato waffles with blueberry syrup. This nutritious meal is going to be a true delicacy due to the fresh berries, and additionally, it’s also a wonderful meal rich in antioxidants.

Waffles are one of the ancient healthy treats in culinary history, having their origins in Middle Age’s wafers, which were thin crisp cakes, baked using wafer irons. Since those times, waffles managed to gain tremendous popularity. Additionally both the serving and preparation quickly developed from eating them plain or with sprinkled sugar, to a large variety of topping and syrups, fruits, ice cream or jam. The most popular waffles are the American, the Belgian, the Liege waffles, the stroopwaffles, or the Scandinavian ones.

If the popular American waffles are usually served as a breakfast meal and they’re made from a batter with baking powder, the Belgian waffles are made from a yeast batter, and they have a rectangular shape; these waffles are commonly sold on the street by various vendors, and they are topped with fruits, chocolate or whipped cream.

The Liege waffles are denser and sweeter than the common waffles, while Scandinavians are more romantic, turning their waffles into heart-shaped ones. The name of stroopwaffles originates from Germany, where the word stands for syrup waffles, and they’re also very popular in Netherlands.


The Pancakes
  • 1/3 cup peeled and diced sweet potato
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup whole-wheat (whole-meal) flour
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose (plain) flour
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal, preferably stone-ground
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 cup plain soy milk (soya milk)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp of ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp of ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp of salt

  • The Syrup
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 2 tbsp of water (if you're using fresh berries)
  • 1 tbsp of fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp of grated lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp of dark honey
  • 3 tbsp of light molasses

  • Preparation

    The syrup should be prepared first, by putting in a pan all the ingredients and bringing them to boil over medium heat. Don’t forget to stir occasionally, and cover the pan. When the mixture begins to thicken, and the berries burst, in about 7 minutes, the syrup is ready. Set aside, but make sure the pan remains warm.
    Take a saucepan and bring the potatoes to boil in it, until they become tender, and then use a food processor or a blender to process them. Put the potatoes into a bowl and create a mixture using the milk, 2 spoons of molasses and the olive oil. Take a bowl and mix the cornmeal, the flour, the baking powder the ginger, the cinnamon and some salt. Now combine the potato mixture with the flour. The egg white should be beaten and then gradually added in the batter mixture. Now all one has to do is cooking the batter using a waffle iron. When ready, top each waffle with the blueberry syrup and serve while still warm.
