These waffles begin and end with a nice bunch of fresh, just ripe strawberries.
Without them, don’t bother….
The waffle batter is not overly sweet, not overly tart. It’s a light batter and you get bits of sour when your tongue finds one of the fresh strawberries mixed in with the batter. The Maple Cinnamon Butter is not too sweet either and adds a smooth alternative to the crispness of the waffle edges.
The strongest flavors here are strawberry puree and the cinnamon. Both combine and swirl around in your mouth to balance out the plain waffle flavor. Add in a little cocoa powder to the batter for a more dessert like waffle.
My first attempt at waffle making. Definitely not my last.
For the Maple Cinnamon Butter, I used a new product from Trader Joe’s that combines Agave Nector with Maple Syrup. It is not super sweet and blends well with the sour strawberry flavors.
A wonderful idea for an Easter morning meal. Fresh ingredients that wont weigh you down for the day. Substitute any fresh fruit in the syrup to suit your own tastes.
Have a safe weekend out there!
