Sweet Potato and Marshmallow Waffles
Recipe By:

Ingredients
  • 1 medium sweet potato or yam
  • 1 ½ c. flour
  • ½ t. baking powder
  • ½ t. baking soda
  • ½ t. ground cinnamon
  • ¼ t. salt
  • ¾ c. buttermilk
  • ⅓ c. oil, plus more for brushing on waffle iron
  • 3 T. brown sugar
  • 1 large egg plus 1 large egg white
  • Syrup
  • 1 ½ c. mini marshmallows

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven 350. Poke potato with fork and bake until soft in center. Let cool, then scoop out flesh and puree in food processor until smooth.
  2. Turn oven down to 200 (to keep cooked waffles warm). Preheat waffle iron to medium high.
  3. Whisk together flour, baking powder, soda, cinnamon and salt in a bowl. In another bowl, whisk the milk, ½ c. of the puree, oil, brown sugar, egg and egg white.
  4. Pour the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture and gently stir until incorporated (ok, if there are lumps).
  5. Lightly brush top and bottom of waffle iron with oil. Fill each section about ¾ of the way up (there should be some of the waffle iron showing.)
  6. Close and cook until golden brown and slightly crisp, about 6-10 minutes.
  7. Keep waffles warm in oven covered with foil until all are cooked.
  8. Switch the oven to broil, drizzle each waffle with a little syrup and ¼ c. of marshmallows. Broil until golden, about 15-30 seconds. Serve with additional syrup.
