Best Waffle Recipe Coconut Macadamia Nut Waffles

Hawaiian Style Waffles, coconut syrup, macadamia and coconut? Amazing!

For us this is a fabulous waffle recipe, not only are the memories of these and our trip last long in our mind ,but the smell lingers in your home while they're cooking!
 A few years ago, my husband and I were lucky enough to take our second trip to Hawaii. Every morning at breakfast we had these waffles with fresh coconut syrup. I have tried to recreate the recipe for years now and have never been able to master this one until now. It's a little effort but well worth it! If you love coconut and macadamia nuts, this one's for you...The longer you cook these the crispier they will be. If you like soft, then don't over cook them.

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

2 egg whites
2 egg yolks
2 tablespoons finely grated coconut ( I just put it through the food processor)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups milk
6 tablespoons butter, melted
Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions.
In a large bowl mix the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt together in a mixing bowl, set aside. Beat egg whites until foamy in a separate large glass or metal bowl. Whisk the egg yolks, lemon zest, and vanilla extract together in a third bowl, beat in the milk. Stir in the flour mixture until smooth. Fold in the melted butter and then the beaten egg whites until just blended.
Cook the waffles until golden brown.

Macadamia nuts
shredded coconut
coconut syrup see below

Coconut Syrup
8 tablespoons butter
¾ cup coconut milk
1 cup sugar
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla or coconut extract
2 tablespoons of shredded coconut (put through food processor)

Place butter, milk and sugar in 2 quart pan. With range on medium heat, dissolve sugar and melt butter. Boil for one minute. Remove from heat and add baking soda and flavoring. It will foam up give this a few minutes before serving to go down.
