Cinnamon-Raisin Mochi Waffles
Place apples and sea salt in a medium saucepan. Add enough water to just cover the bottom of the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and let simmer until apples are soft. Stir in the barley malt and let cook another 10 minutes.
- 4 large tart apples -- cored and coarsely chopped
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 Tablespoon barley malt syrup
1 package cinnamon-raisin mochi -- sliced in half and each half cut through the thickness
1 teaspoon canola oil
When the apples are nearly done, preheat waffle iron. Using a pastry brush, lightly coat the surface of the iron with oil to prevent sticking. Place one slice of mochi on the iron. Cover and cook 1 to 2 minutes. The mochi will puff up and brown like a traditional waffle when done. Repeat with remaining mochi slices. Top with apples and serve.
In case you don't know, mochi is a Japanese sweet rice cake that you can get at most international food stores.
