Apple Cinnamon Waffles

I got this from my Pillsbury Cookbook.  They are sooo good!  Everyone loves them and they have apples sneaked in them!  No one will ever know.

2 eggs, separated
2 cups buttermilk
2 cups all purpose flour, I use whole wheat
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup margarine or butter, melted, or oil
1 peeled shredded apple
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Heat waffle iron. Place egg yolks in large bowl; whites in small bowl.  To yolks add buttermilk;beat well.  Add flour, baking powder, soda, and salt; beat until smooth.  Stir in melted margarine. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form; fold into batter.  Bake in hot waffle iron until steaming stops and waffle is golden brown.  Serve with syrup of your choice.  I like real maple and you only need a little bit!

Side note:  If you don't always have buttermilk in your fridge, powdered buttermilk is a great alternative.  It is actually the real buttermilk.  The stuff we have now is like thin yogurt, which isn't really buttermilk.  I got my stuff at Walmart, so you can find it almost anywhere.  And isn't expensive.  Mine takes 4 tsp powder and 1 c water to make 1 cup buttermilk.  Mix the powder in with the flour then add your liquid.
