Juice of ½ lemon
55g brown sugar

To make the apple filling, drizzle the lemon juice over the apple slices.
Place the water, brown sugar, caster sugar, cornflour, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large pan. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook for 1 minute or until just thickened.
Add the apples to the pan and stir to coat with the sauce. Lower the heat to medium and cook until the apples have softened, about 10 minutes.
Add the butter to the pan and stir until it has melted. Allow the apple filling to cool slightly while you prepare the waffle batter.
To make the waffle batter, combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well.
Mix together the wet ingredients, add to the dry ingredients and whisk the mixture by hand until it forms into a smooth batter. Fold through half of the apple filling.
Spray waffle maker with Bertolli Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray, spoon batter into the preheated waffle maker and cook until golden and crispy.
Repeat with remaining batter then serve with extra apple filling. Also lovely with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream.
