Tuck into Autumn with Homemade Spiced Apple Waffles

Imagine a crisp fall weekend. Sleeping in (just a little). Waking to bright sunshine, turning leaves, the smell of coffee brewing…and the spicy scent of cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg and fresh apples wafting through the house.

So comforting, right? Now, if I could just get someone to bring all of that to me in bed. A girl can dream.

Homemade Spiced Apple Waffles are Cinch to Make

Provided you have a waffle maker. Otherwise, it might be kinda hard. Speaking of waffle makers…I recently acquired a new one that has interchangeable plates — it also turns into a grill and a sandwich press. I love a multi-tasker.

Anyway, it took a little trial and error to get the amount of batter right. I still need a little practice with it. But, that reminds me that I should mention number of servings…I get nine waffles out of this batch. However, depending on the size of your waffle iron, it may be more or less. With that said, I won’t boss you around about how much batter to use per waffle. 

There are no crazy ingredients. You’ll probably have everything you need in your pantry or fridge. So here’s how it goes…

Grab yourself a big bowl. Dump in the flour, baking powder, brown sugar, all the spices and salt. Combine everything with a whisk to remove lumps and distribute. Then, make a well in the center of the dry mix.

In a smaller bowl or measuring cup, combine the eggs, milk and oil. Pour this into the dry mix and stir to combine.

Finally, add the grated apple and fold that in. You’re ready to make waffles!

Serving Suggestions

It seems a little silly to have a paragraph about serving ideas for waffles, but just in case…

  • Top these with pure maple syrup, maple whipped cream, cinnamon sugar, ice cream, etc.
  • Use them instead of bread for sandwiches…like a grilled apple + brie or a Nutella + apple sandwich!
  • Serve them with Caramel Apple Compote with Dried Cherries + Pecans (pictured below!)

A Few of Tips for Homemade Spiced Apple Waffles

Grating an apple.

Peeled or unpeeled, leave the apple whole. Using a box grater, grate one side of the apple until you nearly reach the core. Spin it one-quarter turn and repeat. Continue until you’ve grated all four sides. You’ll be left with only the core which also just saved your knuckles!

Greasing your waffle iron.

Even if your waffle iron is non-stick, it doesn’t hurt to provide a little insurance. I don’t recommend cooking spray as it tends to build up and leave an annoying sticky residue over time that’s impossible to clean off. I prefer a pastry brush dipped in softened butter or oil to grease my iron — it doesn’t take much!

Storing leftovers.

Store in an airtight container in your fridge for 3 to 5 days. To reheat, pop them in a toaster or warm them in a 350°F oven for 5 minutes.
