Author: Canadian Living

Whole wheat flour gives a nutty taste to these waffles; the fruit topping makes a delicious change from maple syrup.

  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon each baking soda and cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Topping:
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 4 apples peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberry
  • 1/2 cup raisin
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Method

Topping: In skillet, melt butter over medium heat; stir in sugar. Add apples; cook, stirring, for 10 minutes. Add apple juice and cranberries; bring to boil. Dissolve cornstarch in 1 tbsp (15 mL) water; add to pan and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until thickened. Set aside; keep warm.

Meanwhile, in bowl, whisk together all-purpose and whole wheat flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. In separate bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk and butter; pour over flour mixture and stir just until combined.

Heat waffle iron; brush lightly with some of the oil. Pour in 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the batter for each waffle, spreading to edges; close lid and cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until steam stops and waffle is crisp and golden. Serve warm with topping.
