coconut waffles

Like coconut? 
Like strawberries? 
Think mangoes aren't half bad either?
check, check, and check!

I thought I'd share with you this recipe for
Coconut Waffles with Strawberry-Mango Compote.  
I had this recipe given to me almost 10 years ago now and we make these waffles about once or twice a year in our home.
 With our local strawberry season just around the corner, I pulled this recipe out, along with a few others.  Strawberry season here is
short but sweet
and one must take advantage of it!

Coconut Waffles with Strawberry-Mango Compote

1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced 
1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted, and cut into small cubes  
1 tablespoon sugar

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter , melted
1 cup milk
3 large eggs , beaten
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup shredded sweetened coconut
Fresh mint, for garnish

Toss the strawberries, mango and sugar in a bowl. Let stand for about 90 minutes.

Heat a waffle iron according to the manufacturer's directions. Lightly oil the grids.

Meanwhile, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl to combine. Make a well in the center and pour in the melted butter, milk, eggs and coconut milk. Whisk just until smooth; do not over-mix. Mix in the coconut.

Spoon about 1/4 cup of the batter into the center of each quadrant of the waffle iron and close the iron. Cook until the waffle is golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes.

Serve the waffles hot, spooning the compote on top.
Garnish with the mint leaves. Enjoy!
