A wonderful brunch item for your next gathering!
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 3/4 cups milk
- 1/2 cup Fresh Harvest 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 Fresh Harvest Strawberry Balsamic
- 3/4 cup sugar
For the Compote:
Place the sugar and 1/2 cup of balsamic in a heavy duty 2+ quart sauce pan. 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 thick, chunky sauce (about 8-10 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.
