How to make Pumpkin Waffles with Maple-Walnut Apples

For the waffles:

You can also use a whisk attachment attached to a food processor. I know this Teach me, please Whisk the flour, wheat germ, sugar, baking powder, spices and salt together in a large bowl.

2) Beat together the milk, pumpkin puree, melted butter and melted shortening, egg and egg white, in a bowl. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients. Technique: Whisk Using light, rapid sweeping strokes to thicken or thoroughly combine ingredients. You can also use a whisk attachment attached to a food processor. I know this Teach me, please Whisk together to make a slightly lumpy batter.

3) Pour and spread about 240ml batter into the waffle iron. Cover and cook until crisp and a rich golden brown, about seven mins. (Try to resist the temptation to open the waffle iron too soon. Steam will puff out of the iron while the waffles cook, when this stops the waffle is cooked.) Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve hot with the apples.

For the topping:
Melt the butter in a frying-pan over a medium heat. Add the apples and cook until slightly browned, but still crisp, about four minutes.
