Ngoc Minh Ngo
Yield Makes 4 servings
We love the contrast of crunchy cornmeal, tart berries, and smooth lavender cream in these waffles, a version of the ones on the ever-changing brunch menu at the Lark Creek Inn in Larkspur, CA. Prep and Cook Time: 40 minutes.

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

How to Make It

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Whisk in the eggs and buttermilk until well blended, then stir in the butter.

  2. Cook in a waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions. Serve hot with lavender cream (recipe follows) and fresh blueberries.

  3. Lavender cream. Cook 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream and a scant 1/4 teaspoon dried culinary lavender in a small saucepan over medium heat until hot but not boiling. Cool completely, then strain. Stir in another 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream and 1 tablespoon sugar, then whip to soft peaks. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
