Thinking about a special breakfast for this weekend?
I have recently bought a cookbook by an American food blogger, Tieghan Gerard. She has great ideas and I do take loads of inspiration from her book and blog Half Baked Harvest.
I have tried her recipe for waffles (with some adjustments) and served them with sautéed apple slices tossed in a hot pan with butter, cinnamon, and sugar. Yum! Super moist and delicious!
With this recipe, I was able to make 5 individual waffles, but you may get more or less depending on your waffle maker.
Waffles with Sautéed Cinnamon Apples and White Chocolate
For the satueed apples
Heat your waffle maker.
Separate the egg whites from the yolk and beat the egg whites in a bowl, until stiffed. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, milk, melted butter, and vanilla paste. Stir in the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the beaten egg whites and gently fold them in until you obtain a smooth, fluffy batter.
Cook the waffles in the waffle maker, follow the instructions of your waffle maker. In my case, it took approx. 5 minutes for each waffle.
While you are cooking the waffles, prepare the apples. Slice them thinly (5mm thin). Heat the butter in a pan, once melted and not too hot, add the apple slices and toss them in the butter. Add the cinnamon, lemon juice, and sugar and toss well until the sugar melts (it will take 3-5 minutes). Your apples will still remain a bit crunchy, but you can cook them longer if you prefer them well cooked.
Once the waffles are ready, top them with the sauteed apples (and the juices released while cooking them) and sprinkle some chocolate chips if desired.
