Waffles with Strawberry Sauce

Breakfast and Brunch, Sauces | 7 comments

We almost had a dilemma on our hands this morning when I realized we were completely out of syrup and I had asked Eric to make his amazing waffles for breakfast. I did say almost. My waffle craving self wasn’t about to pass up an opportunity to have waffles for breakfast. And for a split second I actually contemplated making a trip just for maple syrup to serve with said waffles.

Then I remembered we had strawberries. Out of season strawberries no doubt, but they looked too good to pass up and after months of cold weather and wind, I wanted something sweet and juicy and fruity. Can you blame a girl? Let’s hope not, because today those strawberries became strawberry sauce and saved our breakfast!

Strawberry Sauce
a goodLife {eats} creation

  • 3 c strawberries
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 4 Tbs sugar
  • 1 tsp cornstarch

Stir sugar and cornstarch together. Puree half of the strawberries. Add strawberry puree, zest, and sugar mixture to a medium sized saucepan. Cut up the remaining strawberries in bite sized pieces, set aside. Cook the strawberry sugar mixture over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, for 3 minutes – until thick and bubbly. Add strawberry pieces and cook 2 more minutes. Serve over waffles or pancakes.
