Lemon Waffles & Compote


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup The Spicy Olive's Lemon Infused Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Whipped cream, for topping, optional
  • 3 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1/2 cup The Spicy Olive's Cara-Cara Orange-Vanilla White Balsamic
  • 1 cup white sugar

Cooking Instructions

Step 1: For the Compote: Place the sugar and 1/2 cup balsamic in a heavy duty 2-quart pan or larger.  Heat over medium heat, 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, stirring frequently, about 8 minutes.  Cool to room temperature before serving.

Step 2: For the Waffles: Preheat a standard or Belgian waffle maker.

Step 3: Beat the eggs in a large bowl with a mixer or by hand until fluffy.  Beat in flour, milk, Lemon Infused Olive Oil, sugar, baking powder, salt, & vanilla, just until smooth.

Step 4: Grease the preheated waffle maker with non-stick cooking spray.  Pour mix into the now-ready waffle maker.  Cook until golden brown.

Step 5: Serve right away with strawberry-balsamic compote and a dollop of whipped cream.
