Cinnamon Apple Waffles {Recipe}


The other night the kids were dying for breakfast for dinner. I wasn’t in the mood for our same old same old so I threw in homemade waffles. You see, we have always had a Cuisinart Waffle Maker. We got it for our wedding. It wasn’t until we moved that I found it again. It was hidden away somewhere (I still don’t know where) and it was like re-opening a wedding gift! YAY (for me!). Anyway, with our new found cabinet space, there is plenty of room to keep the waffle maker up front and so I think we may be adding some new creations to the mix.

I have been trying to experiment more with natural sweeteners in my baking. Attempting to cut back on some of the refined sugar that we eat. In an attempt to do this I have been encorporating more local maple syrup. This was the perfect recipe to try it out in.

The waffles were fluffy and had just more than a hint of apple and cinnamon to them. It was just the difference needed to give it a seasonal edge.

Served with fresh apples, the kids (and I) thought they were pretty delicious;)


Cinnamon Apple Waffles


2 eggs
2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1 3/4 cups whole milk
1/2 cup applesauce (I use homemade)
2 Tbsp maple syrup
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla


Beat eggs in a small bowl. Add in rest of the ingredients and mix until incorporated. Grease a preheated waffle iron with vegetable oil. Pour 1/2 cup of mix onto waffle iron. Cook until just browned.

**Make sure not to be too hasty when removing the waffle from the iron. I find that there is a fine line between cooking too long and not cooking long enough. If you don’t cook long enough they tend to stick to the waffle iron.
