Apple-Cinnamon Waffles

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

3 eggs
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!
