I just purchased a new waffle iron and am on a search for awesome waffle recipes. This is one I found on Mr.Breakfast.com. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family did. Any left over waffles would freeze well (OAMC). NOTE: You can also try adding different fruits and spices instead of apple and cinnamon. I added a couple fistfuls of semi-sweet chocolate chips to the batter and the grandkids flipped over them.
- Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
- In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff; set aside.
- In a meduim bowl, beat egg yolks well. Stir in milk.
- Add sifted dry ingredients to egg yolks and mix until moistened (be careful not to over mix).
- Add vegetable oil.
- Fold in egg whites.
- Stir cinnamon into mixture.
- Add apples. Blend lightly into mixture.
- Bake in preheated waffle maker for at least 4-5 minutes, until crisp and brown. (They'll be done when waffle iron is no longer emitting steam).
- NOTE: Waffles should be done when steam subsides from waffle maker.
I made these yesterday and they are good. I made a couple of changes: I used half whole wheat flour and half white flour to make them more healthy. I also grated the apple, and that seemed to work great. I needed only a tiny bit more liquid to make up for the fact that I used whole wheat flour. The waffles smelled divine while they were cooking, and tasted great when they were done: not terribly sweet, but with a great apple-cinnamon flavor. I also made homemade applesauce to put on the waffles as a special treat. The kids gobbled them! Thanks for the recipe, Happy Hippie!
I thought these were pretty good. I decided to use whole wheat flour and applesauce in place of the oil for healthier waffles. I also chopped the apples finely instead of thinly slicing them so that they were more evenly distributed. One thing I did find was that I had to add at least 1/2 c more milk because my batter was so thick. The flavor was good and my 3 kids gobbled them up AND I have enough for tomorrow morning. I also made some cinnamon apples for a topping; thinly sliced one peeled apple, covered with water, sprinkled with cinnamon and 1 tbsp brown sugar. I let that simmer until apples were soft and syrupy. It was a great topping, though some of my kids preferred powdered sugar or maple syrup.
