Fried Apples & Waffles Made with Einkorn Flour

fancy up breakfast

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope everyone had a great week! I love Sunday mornings I think that’s why I write a lot of my blog posts on Sunday because I love to sip on my coffee and write down my thoughts…two of my favorite things to do! It is easy to get caught up in the south in going out to Sunday brunch but truth be told breakfast is healthier and a lot less expensive to eat at home. It is fun to fancy up breakfast from time to time so today I am going to share just how we did that today!

So this Sunday morning we drank our coffee and while doing so we cooked up some crispy center cut bacon, some fried apples and waffles made with Einkorn (gluten sensitive) flour and oh boy were the results delicious! I even turned to the Viking our “Waffle Master” and said this is as good as any brunch we have had at a bed and breakfast or fancy brunch! So I thought I would share with all of you how we fancied up our breakfast!

The apples were really apples we just had around the house for eating but they were beginning to go soft and you know how I hate to waste food; so I thought what could I do with those? We had leftover buttermilk from our son’s birthday cake I had made the day before as well. I mentioned to my husband the Viking in my life this would be a perfect time to make waffles which because of my gluten sensitivity we rarely make. We were both looking forward to having them as a treat! I should preface I had not made the waffles or the cake ever before with the Einkorn flour and I must say the results were fabulous. Most importantly I did not get an upset stomach from either which if you know about gluten sensitivity an upset stomach is one of the first symptoms, and there are several others that range from general malaise, mood swings, sinus issues, to aches and pains such as rheumatoid arthritis and even leaky gut syndrome but I digress that’s another blog post 😉

If you have not heard of Einkorn flour though click here to read about it but it is important to note Einkorn flour is not a good choice for celiacs as it does still contain some gluten but if you are just gluten sensitive you may decide like me it is a great way to keep some flour in your life and my family was sure glad it does work for me because they love it too!!

the apples

Fried Apples

Heat up a cast iron pan

Place a tablespoon of ghee in pan

Peel and slice about 4 or 5 apples and place in pan

Drizzle 1 tablespoon of honey all over apples

Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of cinnamon all over apples

Cook and stir until apples get brown on edges like they are roasted

Crispy Bacon

Place center cut bacon in a hot cast iron skillet

Cook until crispy and drain well

the waffle

The Waffles

Heat up waffle iron
Use ghee for oil to keep your waffles from sticking
2 Cups sifted flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 TBSP. sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
3 eggs separated
1 1/2 C. buttermilk
5 TBSP. melted butter

Whip egg whites until fluffy and set aside
Mix all other ingredients together
Fold in egg whites
Add milk as needed to provide desired consistency as this recipe can sometimes come out to thick

Make waffles with this batter in your waffle iron as usual and enjoy! We like to wait until the edges get a tiny bit crispy and golden….oh my!

I hope you enjoyed our version of how to “Fancy Up Your Breakfast!” and I wish you all a beautiful week…until next time! The other really great thing is we have some leftover waffles we put in the freezer for breakfast this week. A great on the go breakfast in the morning is a gluten-free or gluten-sensitive made waffle with peanut butter on top…YUM! That’s my kind of fast food!

  1. Looks yummy!! We haven’t had waffles here since my waffle maker died of overuse!! I keep looking as I don’t want the nonstick coating on it…tends to leave a rather funky aftertaste to things. I use the same recipe as for waffles here to make pancakes, our usual Sunday lunch treat Hope you are having a lovely long weekend!!!

  2. Christine I am so excited I have one more day to sleep in! I hope you find a good waffle maker my hunny found a vintage one but it was heavy and cumbersome some modern items are just good to have around. I asked him to make waffles because I love how delicate they are! Hope all is well with you 🙂 Always great to hear from you!

I Love Hearing From All Of You! Thanks for sharing!
