Buttermilk Waffles with Raspberry Sauce

It was a beautiful morning this morning. Perfect for lounging around on the deck, lingering over coffee and staying in our PJs longer than is probably right for grown adults. But sometimes, you just need those kinds of days. When you do, these buttermilk waffles with raspberry sauce are the perfect addition to that vacation-without-leaving-home feeling. (And the best part is, they're super easy!)

Buttermilk Waffles with Raspberry Sauce
(Makes 5 8" waffles)

Sauce Ingredients
1/2 c. seedless raspberry jam
2 Tbsp. water

Waffle Ingredients
1 1/4 c. buttermilk
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 egg
3 Tbsp. oil
1 1/4 c. flour
2 Tbsp. sugar

Method
To make the sauce, combine jam and water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until water and jam form a smooth, uniform sauce. Set aside.

For the waffles, combine the buttermilk, baking soda and baking powder in a medium bowl. Let sit 5 minutes until bubbly. Whisk in egg and oil. Add flour and sugar and beat until there are no lumps. Heat waffle iron. Laddle 1/2 c. batter onto iron. Close the iron and cook 2-3 minutes until waffle is golden brown and slightly crispy. Drizzle with raspberry sauce and serve. (Top with a dollop of whipped cream if you're feeling extra indulgent!)
