Fresh Cherry Mascarpone Waffles


Ingredients:
2 cups flour
1 cup mascarpone, at room temperature
1 cup milk, at room temperature
1 cup halved fresh sweet cherries
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
pinch salt
2 eggs, at room temperature

Directions:
Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium sized bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, oil, mascarpone and milk. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir to combine. Fold in the cherries. Follow the instructions included with your waffle iron to complete the waffles. For most large, Belgian-style waffle irons you would use 1 cup of batter for each waffle. I love my waffle maker.


Yield: 4 large Belgian-style waffles

My thoughts:
I haven't posted a lot a of cherry recipes (maybe one?) over the years but it isn't for a lack of cherry love. I just end up eating them fresh out of hand and next thing I know, the bowl is empty and I haven't made anything special with them. I decided to remedy that with these waffles. I had some leftover mascarpone so on a whim I thought I'd add it to the batter. I am glad I did, the waffles turned out creamy, moist and light. No small feat for a simple waffle. The cherries add a juicy pop of flavor to nearly every bite.
