Method

For the waffles

  1. 1

    Preheat your waffle maker. Combine all the dry ingredients in a medium bowl and the melted butter, milk, sweet potato and egg yolk in a separate large bowl. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and stir together until smooth.

  2. 2

    Beat the egg whites until stiff. Gently fold into the batter in 3 parts until combined. The batter should be thick but still able to move. Lightly brush your waffle maker with the oil. Using a ladle, pour in enough batter to fill and then bake for 8 minutes. They should be risen and golden brown. Remove and keep warm in a low temp oven until needed.

For the topping

  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6. Combine the 2½ tbsp sugar and rosemary leaves in a bowl, then add the apples, tossing together until coated. Spread in a single layer on a medium rimmed baking sheet and then bake, turning halfway through, for 20-25 minutes until tender but still retaining bite.

  2. 2

    As the apples bake, start on your cider syrup. Add the cider, 200g light brown sugar, vanilla extract and cinnamon sticks along with a pinch of sea salt to a medium saucepan. Cook on low until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to a gentle boil for 10-15 minutes until the mixture has reduced to about half and thickened. Remove from the heat and leave to cool slightly.

  3. 3

    Serve the waffles piled with the roasted apples and warm cider syrup and a dollop of Greek yogurt.
