Blueberry Waffles topped with a Saison Strawberry Compote

Blueberry Waffles topped with a Saison Strawberry Compote

Although its long, long past due – I present to you the last recipe of waffle week that never came. It’s blueberry waffles topped with a saison strawberry compote. Where’s the beer? Well, we used Dog Ate My Homework, a blackberry saison by Brouwerij West. The color of this beer is an absolutely gorgeous purpley-maroon. There are light flavors of blackberry and it almost reminds me of a fruity wine. I’m convinced this beer was made to be cooked down and combined with strawberries for this exact recipe. I was afraid it would disappear behind the strawberries but instead, the flavors shined through to make an above average strawberry topping. This quick and easy recipe is sure to make any morning just a little bit brighter.

 

Serving Size: Makes 6 waffles

 

Ingredients:

1 cup basic mix

2 tbsp butter

2 eggs – separated

½ cup mashed strawberries

1 cup of Dog Ate My Homework by Brouwerij West

1 tbsp cornstarch

3 tbsp sugar

Optional:

Let the liquid thicken and reduce – about 3-5 minutes on the stove. When the time is up, set it aside until its time to pour all over your delicious waffles.
