Macerating sliced strawberries in a little sugar creates a flavorful fruity syrup that soaks deliciously into the waffles.
Make Vanilla Cream.
Combine strawberries and sugar in a medium bowl; toss to coat. Let stand at room temperature until strawberries start to give off juice, 20 to 30 minutes. Top each serving of waffles (or pancakes) with strawberries and a dollop of Vanilla Cream.
Make Ahead Tip: The yogurt cream will keep, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
