This rendition of a breakfast favorite owes itssubstantial crunch to yellow cornmeal and its subtle tang to buttermilk. Warm, syrupy nectar from the fruit compote seeps into the wafflesfor a touch of sweetness. A dollop of creme fraiche blended with confectioners' sugar adds another layer of texture and taste.

This is an all-time fave in our household! It's the perfect sweetness, fluffiness and crunch that even my picky nephews will even eat:)
