Lemon Waffles with Strawberry-Orange Compote

Needed for this Recipe:

Sunshine Coast Olive Oil Co. Cara-Cara Orange-Vanilla White Balsamic

Sunshine Coast Olive Oil Co. Lemon Fused Olive Oil


Waffles Ingredients:

2 eggs

2 cups all-purpose flour

1¾ cups milk

½ cup Lemon Fused Olive Oil

1 tablespoon white sugar

4 teaspoons baking powder

¼ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon vanilla extract


Fresh Strawberry-Balsamic Compote Ingredients:

3 cups sliced, fresh strawberries

½ cup Cara-Cara Orange-Vanilla White Balsamic

1 cup sugar

Whip cream topping optional


For the Compote:

Place the sugar and 1/2 cup of balsamic in a heavy-duty 2 quart saucepan or larger. 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.


For the Waffles:

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.
