Buttermilk waffles with pink cherry compote
Note: header image is a recent update, made with frozen strawberries cooked with a bit of sugar and pureed with an immersion mixer.
This post goes with the previous one about cherry compote. I made the compote and served it over these waffles. It’s an easy, no-fail recipe that you can mix by hand in no time.
2 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups buttermilk, milk or plant based mil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda in one bowl.
combine eggs, buttermilk and vanilla in another bowl and whisk together.
Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and mix with a spatula just until combined. do not over mix. Let rest 5 minutes.
Heat up an electric waffle maker.
Pour the batter into the waffle maker, about 2/3 cupful at a time, depending on the size of your waffle maker.
Cook until crisp and golden.
Serve with the cherry compote spooned over the waffles. Add whipped cream, why not.
