Recipe by
READY IN: 55mins
YIELD: 6 waffles




  • For the cream cheese filling:
  • Using a stand or hand mixer, or a whisk, blend all ingredients until smooth.
  • Place the filling in a piping bag or scrape it into a small bowl. Set the filling aside.
  • For the batter:
  • Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the brown sugar and egg yolks. Add the buttermilk, melted butter and vanilla and set aside.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whisk the egg whites until medium-stiff peaks form. You can also do this by hand.
  • Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet until smooth, then fold in the egg whites.
  • To make the waffles:
  • Preheat a waffle iron to the medium heat setting.
  • Generously spray both sides of the iron with non-stick spray.
  • Sprinkle 3 to 4 tablespoons of raw sugar onto the bottom of the iron, then spoon a scant cup of batter evenly on top of the sugar.
  • If using a piping bag, pipe a swirl of the cream cheese filling on top of the batter.
  • If not using a piping bag, drop 4 generous tablespoons of filling randomly over the batter.
  • Sprinkle a tablespoon of raw sugar on top of the waffle and close the iron. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes until the top is golden brown and releases from the iron when opened.
  • Spray the top of the iron with non-stick spray and sprinkle the top of the waffle with another generous tablespoon of raw sugar. Close the lid and cook for 1 minute more or until the sugar has melted and formed a crust.
  • Remove the waffle from the iron and place on a cooling rack. Wipe down the iron and repeat with the remaining batter.
  • Serve with lightly sweetened whipped cream.
