Blueberry waffles with strawberry, peach, blueberry compote

I made Hamish a special Father-to-be breakfast this morning. I have to say....it was deeeelicious!

Waffles are a nice treat on any given weekend. They are really easy and make breakfast extra special. I jazzed these up by adding a little ground flax seed to the batter (shhhhhh...its healthy!) and also topped them off with a fresh fruit compote.

(im hoping the omega-3's in the flax seed are going to counteract all the butter and syrup. Wishful thinking perhaps?)

This waffle recipe is from the Joy of Cooking cookbook.

Makes 8 6-inch waffles

Preheat waffle iron

Whisk together:

1 3/4 cup flour
1 tbs baking powder
1 tbs sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup ground flax seed (STK addition)

In another bowl whisk together:

3 large eggs
5 tbs unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 cup milk

1-2 pints fresh blueberries, rinse and set aside.

Combine wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Do not over mix.

Pour approx 1/2 cup batter onto waffle iron. Sprinkle 5-6 blueberries on top and then close the lid. Bake waffle until golden brown. Serve immediately or keep warm on a wire rack in a 200 degree oven.

For compote:

In a small bowl combine sliced strawberries, peaches and remaining whole blueberries. Mix well. Use compote to top waffles in addition to other goodies like butter, syrup and whip cream. Enjoy!
