Cooking Light MAY 2006

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 2 waffles and 1/3 cup compote)

Ingredients

  • Compote:
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sugar orange marmalade (such as Smucker's)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 cups fresh orange sections (about 2 oranges)
  • Waffles:
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (about 3 3/4 ounces)
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour (about 3 1/2 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 1/3 cups buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange rind
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • Cooking spray
  • Powdered sugar

Preparation

To prepare compote, place marmalade, orange juice, lemon juice, and honey in a small saucepan over medium-low heat; cook 2 minutes or until the marmalade melts. Reduce heat, and gently stir in the orange sections; keep warm.

To prepare waffles, lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flours and the next 6 ingredients (through nutmeg) in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Combine buttermilk, 1/3 cup water, canola oil, orange rind, and egg in a small bowl. Add milk mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Coat a waffle iron with cooking spray; preheat. Spoon about 1/3 cup batter per 4-inch waffle onto hot waffle iron, spreading batter to edges. Cook for 5 minutes or until steaming stops, and repeat procedure with remaining batter. Sift powdered sugar over tops of waffles. Serve with orange compote.
