Sprouted Yeasted Waffles
- 1 packet (or 2 1/2 teaspoons) active dry yeast
- 3/4 cup warm water (about 80 degrees)
- 3 eggs, pastured or organic
- 3 cups whole organic milk
- 1 cup sprouted yellow cornmeal
- 2 cups sprouted red wheat flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons coconut sap sugar (or sugar of choice)
- 3/4 cup organic butter, melted
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- • Olive or coconut oil for greasing waffle iron
- 1 1/2 cups coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
- 2 cups organic apple cider
- 2 cinnamon sticks (or 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon stirred into sugar thoroughly before adding liquids)
- 2 tablespoons organic butter
- In a small bowl stir together yeast and water. Let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes.
- In a large bowl whisk together eggs and milk. In a medium bowl blend cornmeal, flour, salt, and sugar.
- Add yeast mixture to eggs and milk and blend. Whisk in dry ingredients, then the butter.
- Cover the bowl and let batter stand on counter about 1 hour. (You could also place batter in frig overnight for a stronger fermented taste. Remove from frig and let batter warm up on counter next morning for at least 30 minutes before cooking.)
- Stir baking soda into batter.
- Preheat waffle iron and brush lightly with coconut or olive oil.
- Cook waffles until golden brown - about 4-5 minutes.
- Keep finished waffles in a single layer on a large baking sheet in a 200 degree oven to stay crisp.
- Combine all syrup ingredients in a medium saucepan.
- Bring to a boil and reduce until liquid coats the back of a spoon - 10-15 minutes.
- To serve - butter up your waffles, drizzle with cider syrup and dig in!
