    I love these apple sesame whole wheat waffles, and have to thank Davebakes.com for desconstructing the recipe or at least one that's very close to the Sunlit Cafe's beloved version in Seattle.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup applesauce
    • 1 3/4 cup buttermilk
    • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
    • 1/4 cup honey (may substitute, sugar or agave nectar)
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 2 cups whole wheat flour
    • 1 cup sesame seeds
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

    Directions

    Step 1
    Mix wet ingredients.
    Step 2
    In separate bowl, mix dry ingredients.
    Step 3
    Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, one-half cup at a time, and incorporate until lumps are gone and batter is thick. It may take a little more buttermilk, at times.
    Step 4
    Heat waffle iron, coat grates with oil (high temps butter burns). Pour or spoon enough batter to cover two-thirds of the waffle iron's surface as the batter will spread when the iron is closed.
    Step 5
    Since all waffle irons are different, let your nose help you. Steam will rise and a good baking aroma, will alert you as when to remove or at least take a peak.
