Strawberry Waffles with Strawberry Sauce

Strawberry Waffles with Strawberry Sauce

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.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour*
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

Strawberry Sauce
  • 2 cups strawberries (frozen or fresh)
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Instructions
  1. 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.
  2. Spray preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour mix onto hot waffle iron. Cook until golden brown and serve with Strawberry Sauce.
  3. 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.
