Buttermilk "Fah-fahs" and Strawberry Syrup
My son calls waffles "fah-fahs", so we've sort of adopted that name. He calls pancakes "hot cake", which is pretty much right on the money!
I keep tweaking this recipe, trying to make it easier to remember.
I always get the syrup going before I start on the waffles because it takes about 15 minutes.
For the syrup:
1 lb. frozen strawberries
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup orange juice
Combine in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sugar breaks down and you have a nice syrup.
For the waffles:
2 cups flour
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 stick melted butter
2 cups buttermilk
Pre-heat waffle iron. Combine dry ingredients. Beat egg in a separate bowl. Whisk egg and melted butter into dry ingredients. Whisk buttermilk in slowly until the consistency is slightly thicker than heavy cream.
Pour approx. 1/3 cup batter onto waffle iron. Cook until golden. Serve with strawberry syrup and powdered sugar.
Don't forget the juice!
