Apple-Cinnamon Belgian Waffles
The recipe is a great alternative to plain old waffles, but it uses many of the same ingredients. It is very tasty and great served with pork sausage patties or links.
2 c flour
pinch of salt
1 T baking powder
1 tsp (or more) ground cinnamon
3 T sugar
1 large apple (Granny Smith or tart apple), peeled and grated
1/2 cup canola oil
1 c milk (skim is fine if you are watching your calories)
In medium bowl, blend first 6 ingredients. Toss apple in mixture so it doesn't brown. Set aside.
In large measuring cup, measure the 1 c milk, then add the 1/2 c of oil. Beat the 3 eggs into this mixture. Add these wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir just until combined - do not over mix. You may thin the batter with a bit more milk if it is too thick. Let batter sit for 20 minutes if possible.
Preheat your waffle iron and when hot, spray with a little cooking spray to prevent sticking. Add large scoop of mixture to the waffle iron and cook until golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter.
|Serve with sausage patties or links, fresh berries, pats of butter or perhaps a dollop of applesauce.|
|Don't forget the pure New York State maple syrup|
|Mmmm....go ahead and lick the plate!|
Why not enjoy these yummy waffles for breakfast or as a quick and easy dinner. They are good anytime!
