Cornmeal Waffles

For this month's Secret Recipe Club assignment I had a very different experience. I was assigned Emily's blog Life on Food
Usually when I work on my assignments, I have a tough time trying to decide which recipe I should choose. However this month I didn't have to go too far. When I saw Emily's Cornmeal Waffles I immediately knew this was the one I wanted to try.
Waffle variations are a favourite with my kids so when I saw cornmeal and waffles I simply went for it. I did tweak up the recipe a it to give it a healthy twist.

Cornmeal Waffles

1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup fine cornmeal
Jaggery to sweeten
1tbs desiccated coconut
1 tsp baking powder
1cup yoghurt
1 cup milk
3 large eggs separated
  • Whisk together all the dry ingredients.
  • In a separate bowl mix wet ingredients except the egg whites.
  • Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
  • Whisk the whites in a  blender to stiff peaks.
  • Fold into the batter to get the right consistency.
  • Ladle onto the waffle iron and cook till golden and crisp.


  1. That's the perfect looking waffle. I keep promising myself to get a waffle iron one day, but I'm concerned that might be a bit hazardous for my waistline :-)

  2. I am glad you enjoyed the waffles!

  3. These sound intriguing. However, what is desiccated coconut? I'm allergic to coconut so what would be a good substitution?

  4. Yumm!! What a great twist for batter - we will have to give this one a try!

  5. Beautiful waffles! I still have to try waffles sometime, never had one... :-(

    hope you are enjoying a great Monday Reveal!

  6. I love cornmeal in waffles. It makes them nice and crisp while adding flavor!

  7. Oh I'm totally making these. I love anything cornbread, and love the addition of the coconut. I did the same thing with my SRC post this month with cornbread filled jalapeno poppers. I used coconut oil, and it was just the right amount of coconut. Stumbling and pinning this one!

  8. I bet these would be great for breakfast topped with fruit, or for dinner topped with chili or something! How versatile! Awesome pick this month :)

  9. These sound great! Love the addition of the coconut... yum!

  10. I have fond memories of homemade waffles from when I was young. Thanks for sharing these on SRC.

  11. Those sound so yummy! I think I "need" a waffle iron.

  12. This looks delicious, especially with the coconut. I will definitely have to try it. Great pick!
