Recipe by Bertha C.
I first made these as "pancakes" for a brunch at work years ago. I have actually never made the "waffles" for my family, but each time prepare them in the form of "pancakes." It's a nice "apple-cinnamon roll" type meal for a weekend brunch. Also, when I prepare it, I seem to have way too much syrup, so I always cut the syrup recipe in half.
- 1 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs, separated and beaten
- 1 cup evaporated milk, plus
- 1⁄2 cup milk (I use all milk)
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- 2 medium apples, peeled and chopped (I grate them with a coarse grater)
- 1 cup corn syrup
- 2 cups sugar
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 3⁄4 cup evaporated milk (again, I use regular milk)
