Strawberries and Cream Buttermilk Waffles Are Totally Happening This Weekend
These strawberries and cream buttermilk waffles are the kind of breakfast people write songs about. The waffles are light, fluffy, and perfectly golden brown. You could top them with pecans, maple syrup, powdered sugar, or even crumbled bacon. But few things say “special” like fresh strawberries and whipped cream.
Homemade whipped cream is absolutely worth the effort of making it. If you have a stand mixer or an electric mixer, it only takes a minute or so to make. But if you don’t have either of these appliances, you can also just put heavy cream in a jar and shake it for a few minutes (this is my favorite party trick!).
Combining fresh sliced strawberries and sugar in a bowl with a tablespoon of orange juice brings the juices out of the strawberries so they make their own syrup, perfect for drizzling over waffles or pancakes. (Or ice cream. Or yogurt. Really, once you’ve made strawberries this way, you’ll think up a dozen ways to use them.)
Making these waffles for a group is a good way to make friends. The key to making party waffles is preheating the oven to a low temperature like 200 degrees or so before you start. Make the waffles on a waffle iron as usual, but store them in the oven until you have enough waffles for everybody. The waffles will stay warm and perfect in there, and they’ll taste just like they came fresh off the iron.
