Method

  1. 1. Mix the flour, spices, caster sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
  2. 2. In a measuring jug, add the milk, egg yolks, melted butter and vanilla extract.
  3. 3. In another bowl, whisk the egg whites until soft white peaks form.
  4. 4. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the milk, egg yolks, melted butter & vanilla extract. Mix to make a smooth batter and then fold through the egg whites.
  5. 5. Transfer a ladleful of the batter to the waffle maker and cook for 3–4 minutes until golden brown. Keep the waffles warm in a low oven whilst continuing until you have used all the batter.
  6. 6. For the caramelised apples, put the apples into a pan with the caster sugar and butter. Cook gently over a medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes until the sugar has melted and the apples are glossy. Increase the heat and bubble for 3-4 minutes until they are caramelised and sticky.
  7. 7. Place the warm waffles onto serving plates and divide the apples between them. Drizzle over any of the caramelised juices from the pan and serve straight away with the pouring cream on the side.
