You will need a waffle maker for this recipe. I never knew how simple waffles were to make, or how quick, before I used one. I’ve only used strawberries because I have bucket-loads of them in my garden; other fruits such as raspberries and apricots would be just as good.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient

For the waffles

Quantity Ingredient
250g plain flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon caster sugar
3 free-range eggs, lightly beaten
425ml whole milk
110g unsalted butter, melted, plus more for the waffle maker

For the strawberry compote

Quantity Ingredient
75g caster sugar
25g unsalted butter
250g strawberries, hulled
1 unwaxed lemon, finely grated zest
500ml vanilla ice cream, to serve
4-8 tablespoons maple syrup, to serve

Method

  1. For the waffles, preheat a waffle maker to a medium setting and preheat the oven to 140°C.
  2. Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Whisk in the eggs, milk and butter.
  3. Butter the waffle maker lightly, then ladle some of the batter into each well of the waffle maker, close the lid and cook for five minutes, or until golden-brown and crispy. Remove and place on a tray in the oven to keep warm while you cook the rest.
  4. To make the compote, place the sugar and 75ml of water with the butter into a small sauté pan, then add the strawberries and lemon zest and simmer for five minutes.
  5. Stack the waffles on to a plate, top with some strawberry compote and a dollop of vanilla ice cream. Finish with a drizzle of maple syrup.
