Batter:

  • 1 1/2 C all purpose flour
  • 1/4 C cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp all spice
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • pinch cloves
  • 2 Tb light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs separated
  • 1 C milk
  • 3 Tb vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 C granulated sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. 
  • Peel and core apples. Slice into 1/4-inch thick pieces. Toss with brown sugar and cinnamon. Transfer to a small baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes or until tender. 
  • Preheat waffle iron. 
  • In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients, reserving granlated sugar for later. 
  • In a large bowl or glass measuring cup, combine liquid ingredients. 
  • Separate eggs, adding the yolks to the milk mixture and the whites to a clean medium bowl. 
  • Whisk milk mixture to combine. Pour into dry mixture, whisk or stir to combine until nearly smooth. Set aside. 
  • Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Add in granlated sugar. Continue beating until stiff peaks form. 
  • Fold egg whites into batter until no streaks remain. 
  • Add batter to coat waffle iron, cook until dark and crisp. *Do not overfill. Transfer to a wire rack to stay crisp or to an oven set at 250°F to keep warm until ready to serve. Repeat with remaining batter. 
  • Serve waffles with cooked cinnamon apples, maple syrup and whipped cream, if desired.
