For the waffles with Gala apples from Val Venosta put butter with sugar, vanilla sugar and salt in a bowl. Beat with a whisk until frothy. Separate eggs. Set aside the egg whites. Add the egg yolks and mix in with a whisk. Then add sifted flour with baking powder, beat, add milk and beat again.
Wash, peel and coarsely grate two Gala apples from Val Venosta. Add the grated apples to the dough along with the grated lemon zest and fold in with a spatula. Finally, beat the egg whites until stiff and fold in with a spatula, making movements from the bottom to the top.
Heat the waffle maker. Pour a generous tablespoon of batter for each waffle into the hot waffle maker. Bake for approx. 3 minutes until golden brown. Remove the apple waffles from the waffle maker and keep them warm. Repeat until the batter is used up.
In the meantime, wash and slice the Gala apple that you need for serving. Decorate your waffles with Gala Val Venosta apple slices and sprinkle them with powdered sugar and cinnamon (if you like) before serving.

South Tyrolean DOC or Italian with German mother tongue – this is how Julia describes herself. She likes reinterpreting old family recipes from mom Reinhild and grandma Imma and enriching them with a few innovative and international elements. No matter how relaxed she is when cooking – there is one thing she can’t do well: cooking according to recipes. She likes being adventurous, experimenting and combining when cooking, but there is one ingredient that you can find in every single recipe: her smile.
