Best Waffle Batter and Strawberry and Orange Compote

We had breakfast for dinner one night last week while Jenna was gone. I wanted to try my new waffle maker I got for Christmas. These were good, but some reviews said to cut down on the butter. Next time we will use only 1/2 the amount. Kathleen found the compote recipe on the web. It, too, was very good.

Best Waffle Batter
1 3/4 cups flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups milk
1/2 cup oil or melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine dry ingredients in large bowl.
In a separate bowl, beat wet ingredients and then add to dry, stirring just until moistened.
Cook on pre-heated waffle iron until waffles are browned and test done.

Strawberry and Orange Compote

10-12 Strawberries
3/4 Cup Orange Juice – fresh or store bought
1 Tablespoon Orange Zest
1/3 Cup Sugar (or any other substitute, adjust amount)
Heat until reduced a bit. We used whole frozen berries and it worked just fine.

  1. I love waffle recipes where the eggs don't have to be separated. The one my mom always used took a million mixing bowls!
