Another waffle to try and enjoy!
- 1 cup natural almonds, sliced
- 1 cup flour
- 2 tbsp. cornstarch
- pinch of salt
- 1/3 cup crisco oil
- 2 large eggs, separated
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 cup 2% milk
- 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place almonds on parchment paper lined cookie sheet and, stirring occasionally, bake until they turn a golden colour. Let them cool down before placing in your blender,( saving 1/2 cup before grinding and set aside) and pulse of a fine powder. Do not over process.
Preheat waffle iron as you normally would.
In a large bowl whisk together the almond powder, remaining 1/2 cup of the toasted sliced almonds, flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. In another bowl whisk together the oil, egg yolks, buttermilk and vanilla. Add to the wet ingredients and stir together until just blended. Do not over-mix.
Beat egg whites in an electric mixer until soft peak form, about 2-3 minutes. Gently fold into the batter.
Cook waffles according to instructions of your machine.
To assemble, divide waffles among serving plates, top with the marinated oranges and sprinkle on the coconut ribbons. Serve the creme Anglais along side for your guests to help themselves.
Response: WOW and Yummy!
