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
2 eggs
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!
