We all know that not all raspberries are created equal. Driscoll’s Berries are notoriously beautiful and photogenic. This is not only good for me (because they sure make my photos look amazing) but, they also can make any dish you make look stunning. Driscoll’s exclusive patented berry varieties are developed through years of research using only natural breeding methods. None of their berries they sell are genetically modified. This is a good for food geeks like me who don’t like chemicals or machines messin’ with my food. Driscoll’s is the trusted brand for Only the Finest Berries ™. And fine berries, they are indeed.
Berries are the perfect addition to nearly every dish – sweet or savory. Especially during the summer. I’ve been adding them to my oatmeal since before I can remember, but I’ve found myself adding them to more baked goods recipes like muffins, pancakes, banana bread, and now waffles. Minnesota is the third most berry-loving state in the country and the Minneapolis-Saint Paul metro area is named the leading consumer of raspberries in the entire country. That’s crazy!
These waffles are not only delicious, but they also make the perfect addition to Sunday brunch with the fam. You won’t feel guilty after eating two of these. So many words come to mind when I think of these waffles. These are only a few:
