Belgian Waffles with Berry Compote

Needed to use the berries I still had as extra from when I made the Blackberry and Blueberry Frozen Pie so I decided to make a berry compote and serve it on top of some Belgian waffles. Sounds good, right? This recipe makes about 10 waffles. For the compote you can use any kind of berries you want, even frozen berries work. You might want to make the compote the day before to give it a chance to cool down properly. Does not mean you can pour some warm compote over the berries either.

For the compote:

  • Blueberries and or blackberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • 2 tsp. corn starch
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1/8 tsp. cinnamon
  1. In a small bowl mix the cornstarch with 1 tbsp. water and set aside.
  2. Place all of the berries, the sugar, the 1/4 cup of water, lemon juice and cinnamon in a sauce pot.
  3. Over medium high heat bring the berries to a boil and simmer until the berries just begin to fall apart.
  4. Increase the heat till the berry mixture bubbles and add the cornstarch and water mixture, stirring constantly to incorporate.
  5. Remove from the heat and chill down.
For the waffles:
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  1. In a bowl mix all of the dry ingredients.
  2. In a separate bowl lightly beat the egg yolks. Add the milk, melted butter and vanilla and mix to combine. Add this mixture to your dry ingredients and mix well to fully incorporate.
  3. Then in another bowl beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Add the beaten egg whites into the batter.
  4. Preheat your waffle iron and spray with some non-stick cooking spray. Bake them according to the manufacturer's directions and until they are a deep golden brown.
