Blueberry Cornmeal Waffles

Equal parts flour and cornmeal give these waffles a good crunch and "corny" flavor. Use a nonstick waffle iron if you have one or lightly brush a regular waffle iron with oil. This recipe makes 16 waffles that are about 3" square. Some waffle irons have 4 individual squares and some have only 2. Whichever type of iron you have, use 1/4 cup of batter per waffle, spooning it into the center of the waffle square.

1 cup yellow cornmeal
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
