I added frozen blueberries into the batter halfway through making waffles so I had plain and blueberry waffles. Or you can add 1 Tablespoon of sifted matcha powder for green tea waffles. I also whipped heavy cream and confectioner sugar to make homemade whipped cream. Additional toppings can be freshly sliced strawberries, maple syrup or honey or applesauce, and a sprinkle of confectioner sugar.
