Discard the cinnamon and keep warm over very low heat. (To make ahead, refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 1 month.) Method: Cornmeal Waffles 1. IIn a small bowl, combine the yeast and warm water. Let stand until foamy, about 10 minutes. 2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. 3. In another large bowl, sift together the cornmeal, flour, salt, and granulated sugar. 4. Add the yeast mixture to the eggs and milk, then whisk in the flour mixture until thoroughly combined. 5. Whisk in the melted butter until just combined. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or up to overnight. 6. Preheat the oven to 250°F/120°C. Preheat the waffle iron and brush lightly with oil. Set a wire rack over a baking sheet. 7. Remove the waffle batter from the refrigerator and stir in the baking soda. Ladle some of the batter into the waffle iron, close the lid, and cook the waffles until golden and cooked through, about 3 minutes or according to the manufacturer’s instructions. 8. Transfer the waffle to the rack to keep warm in the oven. Repeat with the remaining batter, placing the waffles in a single layer on the rack. 9. Serve the waffles warm with warm apple cider syrup.
