Apple Cinnamon Cake Waffles

These are my very most favorite waffles in the whole entire universe.

Yummo! I love them just out of the waffle iron with a bit of butter on them. And I love them completely slathered with butter and dripping with syrup. 

So, ya know, real healthy like. 

I found this recipe (or rather the recipe that I would tweak and would then become this recipe) about eleven  years ago. I loved it! Well, actually, the first attempt I liked but my husband thought they were too dense and too dry. 

Well, maybe he had a good point there. 

So, I fiddled with it a bit. Added some buttermilk and more butter (more butter...yep, that makes everything better, right?)

And came up with this recipe! I made it a few times and loved them. Then....I lost the recipe! I thought about these waffles every now and then. I tried finding the recipe on-line again. No luck. 

But a few months ago as I was sorting through a stack of recipe books I didn't need anymore....I found it! Huzzah! I was thrilled!

Now I'm putting it on my blog and I will never lose it again! (cue heavenly chorus)

Apple Cinnamon Cake Waffles

2 cups flour
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup buttermilk
3 large eggs
6 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup applesauce

Mix flour, sugar and spices until thoroughly blended. Add slightly beaten eggs to applesauce and then add to dry ingredients. Stir in melted butter and buttermilk. Bake in hot waffle iron until crisp and yummy! 

I'm not sure how many waffles this makes, but I triple it for our huge famiily and then usually have leftovers for the next day.
It seems there is an unwritten law which requires waffles in blog photos
to be stacked, drizzled with syrup and patted with butter. Seems like a brilliant plan to me.


  1. These sound so fantastic!

    I'm totally pinning this for future reference. I don't have a waffle iron but I've been hinting strongly this year for Christmas ;)

    Wishing you an amazing day.

  2. These sound so good! I'm going to have to try them!

  3. I am always looking for a new recipe and your Apple Cinnamon Waffles fits that bill perfectly. I can't wait to make them, especially with fall weather arriving. I bet your house smells great while they are cooking.
    I would love to have you to link up at my weekly Clever Chicks Blog Hop:

    I hope you can make it!
