Ingredients:

Cherry Sauce

2 cups fresh or frozen (not thawed) pitted cherries (10-ounce package)

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup honey

2 teaspoons cornstarch

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Waffles

2 cups white whole-wheat flour

1/2 cup fine cornmeal

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 large eggs

1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

2 cups low-fat or nonfat buttermilk

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil or canola oil

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions:

To prepare cherry sauce: Combine cherries, water, honey, cornstarch, lemon juice and vanilla extract in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture thickens, about 1 minute. Set aside.

To prepare waffles: Preheat oven to 200°F; place a large baking sheet on the center rack.

Whisk whole-wheat flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Lightly beat eggs and brown sugar in a medium bowl. Add buttermilk, oil and vanilla; whisk until well blended. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined.

Preheat a Belgian-style waffle iron. Lightly coat it with cooking spray. Add enough batter to cover about two-thirds of the surface (about 2/3 cup); distribute evenly with a spatula. Close and cook until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer the waffles to the baking sheet to keep warm until ready to serve; do not stack. Repeat with the remaining batter, using more cooking spray as needed. Warm the cherry sauce over medium heat until hot and bubbling; serve with the waffles.
