Red Fife Waffles with Apples & Nuts
We encourage everyone to support local farms and eat sustainably this Mother's Day. This delicious farm to table recipe is sure to be a treat for mom and the whole family. Pair with one of our 100% estate grown sparkling wines, our Brut or Sparkling Riesling. For a dry sparkling wine lover, our traditional method Brut has a beautiful harmony of citrus fruit and minerality. Our Riesling is done in off-dry style. With white peach, ripe apple and a touch of sweetness, this is the perfect spring brunch wine. Both wines are available through our online shop.
This recipe serves 2 but you can double the recipe for a family brunch. As well, you can switch it up with the seasons! Sub the apples for strawberries and rhubarb in June or peaches in August. The whole recipe only takes 30 minutes and is super simple, so kids can help make mom a fabulous breakfast.
- 1 cup K2 Milling Red Fife Flour, sifted
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup Sheldon Creek Dairy Whole Milk
- 1/4 cup Rolling Meadows unsalted butter, melted
- 1/4 cup Rolling Meadows unsalted butted, cold
- 1 large Ontario egg
- Vegetable oil, for waffle iron
- 1 Red Prince Apple
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together milk, syrup, butter, and eggs; add flour mixture, and mix just until batter is combined. Don't over mix! There should still be lumps.
- Heat waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions; brush with oil.
- Pour batter onto iron (amount depends on iron size), leaving a 1/2-inch border on all sides. Close iron; cook until waffles are golden brown and crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to warm oven to keep warm.
- Meanwhile, slice red prince apple into 1cm slices.
- Heat skillet until just below smoking. Add butter, brown sugar and apples. Toss to coat and let simmer for 2-3 minutes. Add nuts, toss to coat.
- Serve atop warm waffles -- and crispy bacon -- with a side of maple syrup!
