This is Stuart’s waffle recipe that his family makes every other weekend. The Grains of Paradise really add a unique touch to the strawberry topping!
For the Topping:
2 pints strawberries, diced
1-2 T Vanilla Sugar
A few grinds of Grains of Paradise
For the Waffles:
1 C Flour
1 C Stoneground Cornmeal
1 1/2 t Baking Powder
1/2 t Baking Soda
1 t Salt
1 T Butter, melted
2 C Buttermilk
Toss the berries with 1 tablespoon of the vanilla sugar and the grains of paradise. Let stand for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the juices are running.
To make the waffles, mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Mix the melted butter into the eggs, and then stir into the buttermilk.
Combine wet and dry ingredients, being careful not to over mix. Cook according to waffle maker instructions.
Breakfast. Not Just for Breakfast Anymore!
The waffle recipe above can be easily changed if you are having breakfast for dinner! Skip the topping, add a pinch of dried sage and a pinch of pepper flakes. Serve topped with sausage links and real maple syrup. (And butter, but that goes without saying!)
