Waffles and Raspberry Syrup

I got a waffle iron for Christmas! I knew Mom had a great recipe for waffles because we ate them at her house earlier this year. She said she got it from Studio 5 and they called them "Christmas Waffles" because they don't know this can be Any Day of the Week Waffles. The raspberry syrup is to die for.


2 c. flour

2 T. sugar

2 T. baking powder (yes, TABLESPOONS)

3/4 tsp. salt

2 c. milk

2 eggs

1/4 c. vegetable oil

Mix dry ingredients together; mix wet ingredients together, then combine. Pour into hot waffle iron and cook. (Every waffle iron is different. Ours took about 4 minutes to look like the picture.)

Raspberry Syrup

2 c. frozen raspberries (I used fresh because that's what I had - it turned out great)

1 1/2 c. sugar

2 c. water

3 T. cornstarch in 1/2 c. cold water

1 T. lemon juice

Cook raspberries, sugar and water together in a saucepan on medium heat until raspberries are thawed. Bring to a boil. Dissolve cornstarch in cold water, then add a little of the raspberry mixture and combine. Add cornstarch mixture to saucepan. Add lemon juice. Simmer on low heat until ready to serve, stirring often. (Syrup can be cooled and strained, then reheated.)
