It is the time of the year when the berries are coming on strong in our area. I love fresh berries. I also love breakfast for dinner on hot summer nights. Waffles are so simple and easy for any age.

What is so great about this recipe is when you have a little bit of sourdough starter left over, waffles are a great option. Then to add fresh picked berries – how can you go wrong with this?

I also suggest that you try different kinds of waffles. Maybe whole-wheat with our South African sourdough starter or a different flour that may sound good. What I have learned about sourdough is that part of the fun is trying different things.Yield 10 to 12 waffles
