Home Made Waffles With Mixed Berries & Maple Compote

Home Made Waffles With Mixed Berries & Maple Compote

Hello spring break, aah have been waiting for tomorrow since a long time, time since we booked our tickets ie. Will be traveling a bit so looking forward to meeting extended family and friends.Just hoping weather would not damper our spirit.

During one of the many Christmas sales last year brought waffle maker/iron, till date I think its one of the best purchase ever made, having been putting waffle maker to test on a daily basis, so much so that I crave warm waffles for breakfast,lunch and dinner. Thanks to the multitude of waffle mixes you never get bored.

Waffles and maple syrup are made in heaven combination, however this weekend during our regular library trip picked up latest edition copy of Martha Stewart Living, I seriously have dreamsof working for MSL, everything about Martha Stewart feels classy, beautiful and absolutely stunning, one look at the berry maple syrup recipe and I knew I had to try it. So here goes my version


For Mixed berries & Maple syrup compote

1 cup frozen berries
1 cup your choice of maple syrup
1 tbsp of lemon jest
2 tbsp of fresh lemon juice

1. Heat waffle iron and mix waffle mix according to instructions and allow waffles to cook.

For Mixed Berries & Maple Compote
1. Heat maple syrup in a saucepan over medium heat until reduced by half. 
2. Add berries and mush them using  masher. Reduce heat, and simmer until berries are softened, 3 to 5 minutes. 
3.Remove from heat and lemon juice and lemon zest. 
4. Let it cool down for about 20 minutes. (recipe courtesy MSL)

Top warm waffle with compote and serve with chilled apple juice, morning breakfast cannot get any better than this.

Happy spring break everyone :)

Sending this over to Srivall as she celebrates her  3rd blog anniversary.

Have a great spring break. My kid's break starts on 16th :)
