  • Waffles
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1¾ cups milk
  • ½ cup Olive and Then Some Eureka Lemon Fused Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  1. For the Compote
  2. Place the sugar and ½ cup of balsamic in a heavy duty 2+ quart sauce pan. Heat over medium, swirling occasionally until the sugar is completely dissolved. Add the strawberries and cook at a simmer until the strawberries begin to lose shape and become a chunky sauce (about 8 minutes), stirring frequently. Cool to room temperature before serving.
  3. For the Waffles
  4. Preheat a standard or Belgian waffle maker. Beat the eggs in large bowl with a mixer or by hand until fluffy. Beat in flour, milk, Lemon Fused Olive Oil, sugar, baking powder, salt and vanilla, just until smooth. Grease the preheated waffle maker with non-stick cooking spray. Pour mix into the ready waffle maker. Cook until golden brown. Serve with Strawberry Balsamic Compote and a dollop of yogurt or cream if desired.
