Soon you'll be able to't stop thinking about these Crispy Vanilla Bean Waffles with Cherry Compote.


– 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour – 1/2 cup cornstarch – 1 teaspoon baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon baking soda – 1 teaspoon salt – 2 cups buttermilk – 2/3 cup vegetable oil – 2 egg – 3 teaspoons sugar – 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract – 1 vanilla bean, split with seeds scraped out For the compote: – 2 lbs. sweet cherries, pitted – 3 Tablespoons maple syrup – 2 teaspoons cornstarch – Pinch salt



Whisk flour, cornstarch, baking powder, soda, and salt for waffles. Mix buttermilk oil, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and bean scrapings. Take 30 minutes to relax.


Step 1

Heat your waffle iron. Max setting makes crispy waffles. Start with a 250-degree oven. Cook 2/3 cup batter in waffle iron until done. 


Step 2

My time was 4 minutes. While making the rest, keep the waffle warm and crispy on the oven rack.


Step 3

For compote: In a medium saucepan, mix cherries, maple syrup, and salt. On medium, cover and slowly boil the mixture. Cook 15 minutes, stirring often and gently smashing cherries to release juices.


Step 4

Put 2 teaspoons of cherry juice in a small dish or cup after cooking. Turn cornstarch into paste. Back in pot, simmer cornstarch slurry 2-3 minutes to thicken. Keep heated for serving.
