Apple Waffles

adapted from Isa Chandra Moskowitz

These are yummy any time of year, but especially good during the fall when you can feel at one with the foliage. It's like Apple Pie without all the hassle. Roll out of bed, invite your friends over and make them feel loved.

1 large or two small apples (I use granny smith), grated

Dry ingredients:
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon cloves

Wet ingredients:
1 cup applejuice
3/4 cup soymilk
1/3 cup applesauce
2 tablepoons corn oil (canola or veg oil will do)
4 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat waffle iron.

Sift together the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. In a medium bowl, mix together all the wet ingredients (including sugar) until well combined. Create a well in the center of the flour mixture and slowly blend in the wet ingredients until combined. Fold in the grated apple.

Make your waffles according to manufacturers directions. I use a belgian waffle iron and 1 cup of batter per waffle works for me, but you should consult your directions. For crispier waffles, let cook 30 seconds to a minute longer than the directions suggest.
