- These always made the loveliest weekend breakfast for the family; the kitchen was so fragrant with the smell of spices and apples.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 tsp. ground ginger
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs, separated
- 2 cups buttermilk (plain yogurt may be substituted; you can add a little milk or water to the batter if it seems too thick)
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
Combine flour, brown sugar, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Stir together egg yolks, buttermilk, and the melted butter; stir into flour mixture.
Beat egg whites at high speed with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form; fold into batter.
Bake in a preheated, oiled waffle iron until golden.
Serve with butter and warm applesauce.
