|6||strips Maple Leaf Lazy Maple Bacon|
|1 1/2 cups||Cornmeal|
|3/4 cup||All purpose flour|
|3 tsp||Baking powder|
|2||Eggs, yolks and whites separated|
|1/4 cup||Maple syrup|
|1/2 cup||Melted butter|
|1 1/2 cups||Buttermilk|
Let’s start like we always do – fry up your bacon. I cut really tiny strips. You don’t want the bacon to interfere with the batter too much.
Fry till crispy and reserve on a paper towel.
Sift together your cornmeal, flour, baking powder and salt.
In a separate bowl, mix together your egg yolks and syrup. Mix these really,really well.
Add in your vanilla, melted butter and buttermilk and continue whisking. Add the wet ingredients into your flour/cornmeal mixture and stir everything together
In another bowl, beat your egg whites until they hold peaks. You can do this with a mixer, but I did it by hand. It’s good training, but a lot of work. I recommend a mixer.
Mix your bacon pieces into your batter, then carefully fold in your egg whites. We want the egg whites to add airiness to the batter, that’s why we beat them. If you vigorously mix in the egg whites, it will defeat the purpose of beating them. THIS is the key to a light and fluffy waffle.
Spray your waffle iron with some cooking spray and cook them waffles!
MmmMMmMMmmm. Sweet with a little hint of saltiness. You could even caramelize the bacon then put them in your waffles. THAT is what I’m doing tomorrow morning….
This batter also makes great pancakes.
