May 11, 2009

wafflesMother’s day was on sunday, and there’s no better way to treat someone you love with a wonderful and colourful breakfast . I had fresh organic strawberries  and some Haiti vanilla beans, so i thought they would make a perfect compote to serve with fluffy made from scratch waffles.

Waffles (makes 5 servings)

1 and 3/4 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

3 beaten egg yolks

1 and 3/4 cups milk

3 egg whites – beaten stiffly

1 pinch of salt

Mix very well the egg yolks with flour, salt, baking powder and milk. Fold in the egg whites very gently. Cook in the waffles iron about 3-4 minutes.

Strawberry compote

2 cups of diced strawberries

4 tbsps of sugar

half vanilla bean

1/4 cup of freshly squezeed orange juice

Put in a pan the strawberries, the sugar, the orange juice and the vanilla bean split in half. Put over medium heat and allow it to cook 8 to 10 minutes from boiling point.

Serve the waffles with warm compote and a spponful of fresh whipped cream if you like it. Enjoy!
