Freshly juiced strawberries replace the milk in this recipe to create a crispy waffle in a lovely shade of pink. Just process the berries in a juicer, or blend them and strain the juice. Make sure to bake the waffles on the lowest waffle iron setting, or they will start to brown and not look quite as festive.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • Red food coloring (optional)
  • Whipped cream (optional)
  • Additional sliced strawberries, for topping (optional)

Directions:

  1. Heat the oven to 200 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl, use a fork to whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the strawberry juice, eggs and honey.
  4. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry. Mix in some red food coloring if your batter is not pink enough from the berries.
