Waffles with Cranberry Pineapple Syrup

Author: Canadian Living

Enjoy these for brunch - or add whipped cream, if they are for dessert. To make pancakes instead, cook in nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until bubbles break but do not fill in, 1-1/2 to 2 minutes. Turn and cook until bottom is golden, 1 minute.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
Cranberry Pineapple Syrup:
  • 1 pineapple
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup dark rum (or add 2 tsp/10 mL rum_extract or vanilla to pineapple juice)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberry

Method

In large bowl, whisk all-purpose and whole wheat flours, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. In separate bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk and 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the oil; pour over flour mixture and stir just until combined.

Heat waffle iron; brush with some of the remaining oil. Pour in 1/2 cup (125 mL) batter per waffle; spread to edges. Close lid; cook until steam stops, 4 to 5 minutes. (Make-ahead: Wrap individually; refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Or place in airtight container; freeze for up to 2 months.)

Cranberry Pineapple syrup: Cut off peel from pineapple; cut out core. Cut pineapple lengthwise into quarters; cut crosswise into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices.

In skillet, bring maple syrup, butter, rum and cinnamon to boil over medium-high heat. Add pineapple and cranberries; reduce heat and simmer, stirring, until pineapple softens, 5 minutes. (Make-ahead: Let cool to room temperature; refrigerate in airtight container for up to 5 days. Microwave until hot, about 5 minutes, stirring once.) Spoon over waffles.
