I woke up this morning thinking, “Waffles!” As much as I like to cook, breakfasts have not been a high priority for me. My secret sin is that my morning pancakes and have always come from a box. Recently, I learned how easy pancakes and waffles from scratch were to make. Today, I thought about using cinnamon in the waffles and topping them with a fruit compote.

I woke up wanting waffles this morning. Plain waffles are a bit bland, they need something to top them. I had a large Asian pear in my fruit bowl and thought, “Why not.” A compote is simply fruit cooked in a sugar syrup—apple sauce is just one type of fruit compote.

This is my sister’s last day here and I am making pancakes for breakfast. I noticed a few pears on the counter that were past their eating prime. Fortunately, they were still good on the inside. I decided to make compote to go on this morning’s pancakes.

Eilene’s birthday party turned into an overnight, so I had to come up with a breakfast. Eilene asked for waffles. I had a Bosc pear on hand so I decided to whip up some fruit compote to go on top.
