Ingredients

For the waffle:

2 cups flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons sugar

2 eggs, divided into egg whites and yolks

1 2/3 cup milk

1/3 cup butter, melted

For the strawberry sauce:

½ teaspoon unflavored gelatin powder

1 lb. fresh strawberries (or frozen)

1/3 cup granulated sugar

 

Directions

  2. Place flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl. Whisk to combine. In a small bowl, mix egg yolks, milk and butter. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites with a mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form.
  4. Add egg yolks to flour mixture and stir to combine. Gently fold in egg whites.
  5. Drop by large spoonfuls onto greased waffle iron, close the lid and let cook for roughly 3 to 5 minutes.
  6. For the strawberry sauce, combine lemon juice and gelatin; mix to dissolve gelatin. Set aside.
  7. In a medium saucepan, combine strawberries and sugar. Place over medium-high heat and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 8-10 minutes. Add the gelatin mixture and stir to combine. Continue to simmer, stirring occasionally for 5-7 minutes more, or until sauce is thickened. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
  8. Top waffles with strawberry sauce and dust with powdered sugar (optional).
