Cinnamon Raisin Waffles
Low Calorie Recipe
Satisfying waffles spiced nice with cinnamon, made tender with buttermilk and sweetened with raisins, orange extract and maple syrup cooked right in the batter.
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups unbleached flour
1-1/2 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 whole egg whites, slightly beaten
1-3/4 cup fat-free buttermilk (see note)
1/4 cup fat free sour cream
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon orange extract
1/2 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350-degrees.
Prepare waffle iron with cooking spray and heat up. In a small bowl, combine three-tablespoons sugar and half-teaspoon cinnamon; set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, remaining sugar and cinnamon. In another mixing bowl, combine egg whites, buttermilk, sour cream, maple syrup, vanilla, orange extract, and raisins.
Mix dry ingredients with wet ingredients just until moistened. Pour enough batter to fill two-thirds of the waffle iron. Cook until crisp and golden brown. Set aside. Repeat with remaining batter. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon mixture over waffles.
*Fat-Free Buttermilk: Combine 4-teaspoons vinegar with enough skim milk to equal 1-3/4 cups; let stand five minutes.
