My Grandmother's Waffles

Simple, easy, and light... (and a perfect way to use up some of those bushels of strawberries you voraciously and foolishly bought.  And by you, I mean me.)

2 cups Bisquick
1 egg
1 small bottle (1.25 cups) club soda
scant 1/3 cup vegetable oil

Mix all ingredients together, trying to get out as many lumps as you can.  Use in your waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions.

For variation: replace a little bit of the club soda with orange juice, add a few drops of orange extract, a tablespoon of grated orange zest, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Make this to go with it: 

Orange Syrup

1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons grated orange rind
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons orange liqueur

Combine all ingredients in a heavy saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat.  Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about five minutes or until sugar dissolves.
