|01||For compote, combine rhubarb and sugar in a large saucepan off the heat. Stand until sugar draws out some of the liquid (10-15 minutes), then add orange rind and juice and 60ml water, and bring to the boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low and simmer until rhubarb has broken down but some pieces remain whole (5 minutes). Remove from heat and stir in rosewater.|
|02||For orange syrup, bring juice and sugar to the boil in a saucepan and cook until reduced by half (5-6 minutes). Set aside to cool.|
|03||Heat a waffle iron. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and a pinch of salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together buttermilk, melted butter and eggs, then mix in flour mixture until smooth. Pour about ½ cup batter into each section of the iron (depending on its size) and bake until golden brown (4-5 minutes). Serve waffles warm topped with warm or room-temperature compote, crème fraîche or ice-cream and drizzle with orange syrup.|
