Compote

2. Simmer, uncovered, for 8 to 10 min or until reduced by half.

3. Stir in blueberries, lemon zest and cinnamon. Return to boiling. Reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 more minutes.

Waffles

1. In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, brown sugar, baking powder and salt.

2. In a medium bowl, combine buttermilk, milk, oil, egg yolks and vanilla. Whisk to combine. Whisk into flour mixture; do not overmix.

3. In another bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold into batter.

4. Make waffles as per instructions on your waffle maker.

Waffle Compote

Verdict: I found these waffles very grainy. My sister found them bland. The compote was delicious. It had a nice subtle lemon taste and was the best part of the dish.
