Lemon Waffles with Strawberry-Orange Compote
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 cups milk
1/2 cup Lemon Fused Olive Oil
1 tablespoon white sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Fresh Strawberry-Balsamic Compote
3 cups sliced, fresh strawberries
1/2 cup Cara-Cara Orange-Vanilla White Balsamic
1 cup sugar
For the Compote:
Place the sugar and 1/2 cup of balsamic in a heavy duty 2 quart sauce pan or larger. Heat over medium, swirling occasionally until the sugar is completely dissolved. Add the strawberries and cook at a simmer until the strawberries begin to lose shape and become a chunky sauce (about 8 minutes), stirring frequently. Cool to room temperature before serving.
For the Waffles:
Preheat a standard or Belgian waffle maker. Beat the eggs in large bowl with a mixer or by hand until fluffy. Beat in flour, milk, Lemon Fused Olive Oil, sugar, baking powder, salt and vanilla, just until smooth. Grease the preheated waffle maker with non-stick cooking spray. Pour mix into the ready waffle maker. Cook until golden brown. Serve with Strawberry Balsamic Compote and a dollop of yogurt or cream if desired.
Makes 8 standard size waffles.
