…was especially fun, as we had family to share it with!  This morning we made delicious waffles with a homemade strawberry sauce.  The given recipe serves 2, so we doubled it.

For buttermilk waffles and strawberry goodness you need:

  • 3 eggs, separated
  • a pinch cream of tartar
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 tbsp. and 1 tbsp. melted butter, divided
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 quart strawberries, sliced
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 lemon, juiced and zested
  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch
  • powdered sugar

Start by beating the egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form.  I am telling you, beaten egg whites are the key to perfect waffles!  Also, grease your waffle iron with a bit of melted butter and let it start heating.

Whisk together the egg yolks, buttermilk, vanilla, and 2 tbsp. of melted butter.  Then, in another bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and soda, and cinnamon.  Mix these dry ingredients into the liquids just until everything is combined and gently fold in the egg whites.

Pour the batter into your iron and let it cook for 3-5 minutes until nice and golden brown.

While the waffles are cooking, make the delicious strawberry sauce.  Simply combine the berries, sugar, water, cornstarch, and lemon zest/juice in a sauce-pot over medium heat.  Bring the sauce to a simmer and whisk  it gently until it begins to thicken up a bit.

Serve a waffle topped with the strawberry sauce and dusted with powdered sugar.  Yum!

We.love.waffles. and this recipe is certainly no exception! This strawberry sauce is delightful.  In fact, it’s so good, we are making more of it to top leftover birthday cake!  Ah, another day in breakfast heaven.
