½tablespoons brown sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour

¼cup chopped macadamia nuts

½cup pineapple chunks, canned or fresh

  • Preheat waffle iron.
  • In a small bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the egg white until it is stiff. In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolk well and mix in the melted butter and buttermilk.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, stir the baking powder, salt, and brown sugar into the flour, blending thoroughly.
  • Make a “well” in the middle of the flour mixture. Pour the beaten egg mixture into the well and stir into the dry ingredients. The batter should resemble a muffin batter. Gently fold in the egg white. Gently stir in the macadamia nuts and pineapple.
  • Cook the waffles according to the instructions on the waffle iron.
