Cinnamon Waffles

(Originally made 3/2012)

Made the base waffle only- definitely will be making again along with trying the topping!  We had ours with maple syrup and cinnamon chips.    I got 3 Belgian waffles from the recipe, which I found on Annie's Eats, awesome blog!    1 cup per waffle, cooked for 4 mins in my Presto Flipside.

 Cinnamon Waffles with Caramelized Apples

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
                        For the caramelized apples:
  3              tbsp.  unsalted butter
  6                     Fuji apples -- peeled, cored and cut into 1/4-inch slices
     1/2           cup  sugar
  1               tsp.  cornstarch
     1/2          tsp.  ground cinnamon
     1/4          tsp.  ground nutmeg
     1/4          tsp.  salt
  2               tsp.  vanilla extract
                        For the waffles:
  3                     eggs -- separated
  1 3/4           cups  buttermilk
  8              tbsp.  melted butter
     1/2          tsp.  vanilla extract
  1 3/4           cups  all-purpose flour
  1 1/2           tsp.  baking powder
  1               tsp.  baking soda
     1/3           cup  sugar
  1               tsp.  ground cinnamon
     1/4          tsp.  ground nutmeg
     1/2          tsp.  salt
                        whipped cream -- for serving

To make the caramelized apples, in a skillet over medium-high heat, melt 3 tablespoons butter.  Add the apple slices, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.  Mix until apples are evenly coated.  Cook about 18 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Remove skillet from heat and stir in vanilla.  Set aside.

To make the waffles, in a large bowl whisk together the egg yolks, buttermilk, melted butter, and vanilla.  In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.  Whisk the flour mixture into the yolk mixture until smooth.  In another clean bowl, beat the egg whites on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form, about 1 minute.  Gently fold 1 cup egg whites into batter; carefully fold in remaining egg whites.

Preheat waffle maker on medium-high.  Pour 1/3 cup batter into each well of waffle maker; close the lid.  Cook 5-6 minutes.  Repeat with remaining batter.  Serve waffles with caramelized apples and whipped cream. 

Yield: 12 4-inch square waffles
