1 egg, separated

1⁄4 cup melted butter

3⁄4 cup plus 2 tablespoons buttermilk

11⁄2 teaspoons baking powder

1⁄8 teaspoon salt

21⁄2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour

1⁄4 cup chopped macadamia nuts

1⁄2 cup pineapple chunks, canned

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.
