One more delicious waffle recipe. I just love my weekend to start with warm waffles and a hot cup of coffee. I made these more than a couple of times this past Autumn and Winter season. My family just loves breakfasts like this, too.
I love pancakes, but waffles hit the spot every single time especially flavor and aroma that comes with these. My family enjoys them especially when we can get apples from farmer market because they just taste so much better when they are locally grown by your farmer and you know they are in the season when they appear on your market. I just love our farmers and kids learn so much when they ask questions about apples or any other produce grown locally.
Anyhow, I hope you guys try these and if you do make sure to tag me @sandraseasycooking using hashtag #sandraseasycooking Let me see your delicious creations!!!
Apple Cinnamon Waffles
The Perfect Weekend Breakfast
- 2 cups All-purpose Flour
- 3 Tablespoons Sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
- 3 Eggs separated
- 1 and 1/4 cups milk
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1 apple finely chopped or shredded
- Butter for greasing the waffle iron
- 1 tablespoon unsalted Butter
- 4 Apples chopped
- 3 Tablespoons Maple Syrup, or to taste
- 2 teaspoon Cinnamon
- Preheat the waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions.
- In a bowl sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
- In a second bowl use whisk (I use small from the electric mixer) to beat together the egg yolks and sugar until sugar is completely dissolved and eggs have turned a pale yellow.
- Add oil, and milk to the eggs and whisk to combine very well. Combine the egg-milk mixture with the flour mixture and whisk just until well blended. Do not over mix.
- In the third bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, few minutes or so.
- Gently fold egg whites into the waffle batter.
- Add finely chopped or shredded apple in the mixture and fold again.
- Lightly brush butter on the waffle iron and pour enough batter in iron to just cover waffle grid, about 1/2 cup, of course, this depends on the size of your waffle maker.
- Close and cook as per manufacturer's instructions -until golden brown.
- In the sauce or frying pan add butter and coat it well over the medium-high heat.
- Add chopped apples, and saute apples for about 3-4 minutes turning them so they could get a nice color on all sides.
- Add Maple Syrup and cinnamon. Cook for a couple of minutes or until the sauce is thick and all diced apples are coated well with the sauce.
- Drizzle over the waffles and scoop apples and use as a topping. You can also add nuts. I used almonds, but you can add walnuts or hazelnuts.
You may try other fruit or sweet potatoes, maybe sauteed bananas... be adventures!
