Strawberries are my ultimate go-to fruit. I could eat anything with strawberries in it. Well, maybe not anything! But I sure do love strawberries. On Saturday nights, I fix a “fun night meal” for supper. My family voted breakfast for supper on this particular Saturday. I had a hankering for some waffles and some strawberries, so I thought I would come up with my own creation and combine the two. I used my favorite waffle recipe and revised it with the addition of strawberries, their juice, and some good ol’ strawberry syrup. My creation had surpassed my own expectations. I was delighted! If you really like these strawberry waffles, double the recipe and stick the extras in the freezer for your upcoming breakfast. I sprinkled some powdered sugar on the top, but I think some whipped cream would make them extra decadent.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour*
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1¼ cups milk
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 cup unsweetened frozen strawberries, thawed & undrained
- 2 cups strawberries (frozen or fresh)
- ⅓ cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add milk, eggs, oil and strawberries with juice (strawberries need to be slightly mashed/cut into smaller pieces); mix well.
- Spray preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour mix onto hot waffle iron. Cook until golden brown and serve with Strawberry Sauce.
- To make Strawberry Sauce: In a saucepan, combine the strawberries, sugar and vanilla. Cook over medium low heat until slightly thickened. For a less chunky sauce, mash or puree the strawberries.
