Apple Cider Waffles




I just love a recipe that comes together just as you envisioned it would. I had the idea to use some of the apple cider in my refridgerator to flavor my regular Belgian waffle mix. With the addition of some fall spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, I thought it would make a delicious seasonal waffle, just perfect for a cool, but sunny fall morning.

The cider worked perfectly as a substitution for the water called for by the mix and the texture before putting into the waffle iron was just as it needed to be. The scent when cooking was just lovely too. This is not an in your face flavor, but a delicate one, with the nutmeg coming through perfectly. This recipe couldn't be any easier to put together and would be perfect for something a little special, even on a busy morning. And, since I am cooking for one, I store the extra waffles in my refrigerator, put them in the toaster oven to warm and they are just as good the next morning.


Apple Cider Waffles


1 1/2 cups Belgian waffle mix ( I used Krusteaz brand)

1 egg

3 T oil

2/3 cup apple cider

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1 tsp cinnamon


Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl with a wire whisk. Heat waffle iron and spay with cooking spray. Place desired amount per your waffle iron instructions in waffle iron and cook until brown and slightly crisp. Serve with warm maple syrup. Makes 3-4 large waffles. Enjoy!

  1. Oh those sound so yummy. I know most are into the pumpkin thing, and I did just make a loaf of bread, but I love anything apple this time of year. I sent a loaf of WS's new gluten free caramel apple cake to our youngest and she loved it! Need to make a batch for us.

  2. What waffle mix do you like? I have not made them with a mix and would like to give it a try.

  3. As one of the grandsons would say when he was little . . .
    "good 'dea!"

  4. That sounds divine! I'm going to have to try it this weekend!

  5. Oh my, that does sound good! I don't use my waffle iron as much as I should.

  6. Its our Thanksgiving this weekend and my kids are all coming. We always have "Nanny Big Breakfast" the day after the turkey feast. And my son always brings some local organic apple cider. Guess what's going to be on the menu!!!

  7. Oh that sounds delicious:) Enjoy your beautiful FALL day dear friend, HUGS!

  8. What a fun fall substitute. Love it. Joni
