Step by Step Method

Step 1

Toast the coconut in a 350-degree Fahrenheit approximately 10 minutes, or until golden brown (or microwave in a glass pie plate on high, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until golden brown, stirring twice). Set aside to cool.

Step 2

In a large mixing bowl stir together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar.

Step 3

In a medium bowl combine the egg yolk, melted butter, milk, coconut milk, vanilla, and toasted coconut.

Step 4

Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the egg-yolk mixture. Stir until just combined.

Step 5

In a medium, dry, clean bowl beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Gently fold the egg whites into the batter.

Step 6

Cook waffles in a preheated waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Step 7

*Pineapple Syrup* (optional)

Step 8

Combine all ingredients in a medium, heavy-bottomed, noncorrosive saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat.

Step 9

Reduce the heat, keeping the mixture at a boil, and cook until reduced by half (approximately 10-15 minutes), stirring frequently. Remove from heat.

Step 10

Allow the syrup to cool somewhat, but serve while it is still warm.

Love these waffles, the flavor and the texture. We love coconut and this treat does not disappoint. They were crispy and tender and full of flavor. Garnished with butter and warm maple syrup. Thank you for a new family favorite. Kudos on making it into my Best of 2019 Cookbook.
