Nates Birthday food celebration

October 25, 2008

This morning i woke up and made some waffles with an apple compote syrup thing.  Sounds good eh? delicious. First i prepared the batter last night to rest overnight. I mixed it all up and jammed it into my fridge.

Overnight Waffles

  • 2-1/4 c all purpose flour
  • 2 Tbs sugar
  • 1 pkg yeast
  • 1tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1-3/4 c milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cooking oil or butter
  1. Mix together flour, sugar, yeast, vanilla, and salt. Add in milk, eggs, and oil. Mix well. Cover and chill overnight
  2. Stir and pour about 3/4 c batter into your waffle maker.

This recipe makes these lovely looking waffles

So after i created these godly syrup holders i melted down some apples and created a compote (nates request) I was VERY happy about how it turned out considering i completely winged the whole thing.

Apple Syrup/Compote (this made enough for 3 waffles so adjust accordingly)

  • 1 red delicious apple peeled, cored, and chopped
  • half a stick of butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 c milk
  1. I mixed all of this together and simmered in a saucepan for about 45 mins.

Here is the half-eaten result.

It looked better in person (i have a shit camera).

After some Boston Market lunch, an hr massage, some fish purchasing, comic books, and going to see Saw 5 we came home and i starting in on making Nate his official Birthday Cake. This cake, i can assure you, is the most delicious cake ever created on earth. Trust me.
