Cream Cheese Stuffed Waffles

You know when your husband is having a really bad day, and you’re stuck in the car together for an eight hour road trip during which you hopepraycrossfingers that you’ll be able to read even a half page of a book without being interrupted and you forget that putting down the dang book and offering compassion and a listening ear is way more important than reading the dang book then a cop decides to pull over your grumpy husband thereby making his day worse and your empathy more required but all you can think about is how nice it would be to ravage the words on the printed page and consider yourself an educated woman?

Yeah, I totally don’t know either. Just a scenario I thunk up in my brain.

Because, of course, road trips for us consist of me softly caressing John’s back while he shares his earnest woes into my ever listening ear, the kids singing campfire songs in the background whilst the parent pitch in on harmony every time and again. Uh-huh. Whatever.

So, it wasn’t the worlds hottest trip to see family for Thanksgiving, but we made it safely, despite Officer Grouchfest 2011 and his merry holiday speeding ticket.

We weren’t even doing it.

Isn’t that what people always say right before they go to the slammer?

But, the kids were splendid, and we’ve already visited Reams, the local Springville grocery store that makes me giggle happy thoughts up and down it’s vintage small-town-shopping aisles. There were bags of whole, unshelled pine nuts. And eight kinds of Stephen’s Hot Cocoa. And chocolate-covered cinnamon bears. Everyone needs a Reams.

Before we left town, the kids bellies were filled with waffles. Which were filled with cream cheese. Which were topped with blueberry syrup. Which was so much more exciting than getting a speeding ticket. But, who’s keeping tally anyway?

One simply can not be sad when such a fate greets them in the morning. No matter what misadventures the afternoon road trip brings.

Now if only I can caress the hubby into believing that, I’ll have redeemed my non-compassionate, book reading soul from today’s rather stinkyish behavior.

I love you babe. Blueberries forever.


Cream Cheese Stuffed Waffles with Blueberry Syrup


For the Filling:
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
3 tablespoons sugar

For the Waffles:
2 eggs
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 1/3 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 2/3 cups milk

For the Syrup:
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon corn starch
2 cups frozen blueberries


For the Filling:
In a large bowl, beat the filling with the sugar until light and whippy. Set aside.

For the Waffles:
In a stand mixer, beat the eggs until light and lemon colored. Add the sugar, butter, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and milk. Beat just until the batter is combined. Spoon about 1/8 cup of this batter onto a hot waffle iron which has been generously sprayed with nonstick baking spray. Place a tablespoon-sized scoop of cream cheese on top, cover with another 1/8-1/4 cup of batter, then close the lid and allow the waffles to cook. Remove once golden brown. Serve topped with blueberry syrup.

For the Syrup:
Heat the sugar, cornstarch, and blueberries together until boiling. Pour over hot waffles. For a thicker, sweeter syrup, add an additional cup of sugar and 1/4 cup of water. Enjoy!

  1. First- these waffles would last 3.2 seconds in my house! Yum!!! And I totally get you on the reading thing. A mom has a block of time where she doesn’t have to attend to every whim of her children? And everyone is strapped down?! Score!!!!

    These sound freaking amazing!

  3. Waffles? Cream cheese? HEAVEN! I will definitely be trying this over the long holiday weekend.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Springville? You’re in my neck of the woods! And yes, our Reams is the happiest place on earth. :) Have a fun holiday!

  5. Donna says:

    Those waffles look divine! Gonna have to try them Friday. Down in Spanish Fork we feel the same way about Macey’s. Always have to check out the “Holiday” aisle. And you can’t go without running into someone you know, no matter the time of day.

    Our road trip consisted of two screaming – SCREAM.ING! – toddlers, a teenager with a migrain, and a bloody nose. But no ticket. I guess we’ll count our blessings. :) Sorry your drive was so horrific!

  7. Holy cannoli, those look phenomenal! Waffles are my all-time favorite breakfast food, though sadly, I don’t make them often because my hubby doesn’t like them (huh? Someone explain this to me).

    However, I think I’ll remind him that since we got pulled over on *our* last car trip (two weeks ago), right after I said, “Please don’t speed”–he has some making up to do. Including eating cream cheese stuffed waffles. YUM!

    Even though I am not the least bit hungry, I am now desperately craving waffles. Desperately and I am on the verge of eating a big, big meal. Sending wishes for a blessed Thanksgiving.

    Ha! Don’t be dissing on Reams, it is our pride and joy! BTW, here’s a little trivia for you: The margarita wood fire pizza from Reams is to die for (and by die, I mean gives you a reason to live). Who knew? (I did.) xxx

  10. Betsy says:

    I know the point is the waffles (dang yummy looking) but I’m IN LOVE with that nail polish! What is it?! Where can I get some?! :-)

  11. says:

    Wow – I’m in love. Definitely trying these next time hubby has a morning off!!

    PS. I’m right there with you on the book vs compassionate listener thing. The things we do for love. :-)

  12. Erin says:

    That sounds absolutely delicious!! I will definitely be making that for breakfast!! :)

    I had a less than exciting drive back from NC yesterday, but thankfully no speeding ticket!

    These waffles are genious,

    This is Larissa Cory.. formerly McHardy. Not sure if you’d remember me or not. This isn’t my first time reading but this is my first comment post. These waffles probably saved my husband’s sanity yesterday morning. It’s been a rough couple of months but this scrumptious subsistence was a welcome boost indeed.
    So thank you!
