Apple Cider Waffles with Caramel Apple Syrup

Sharing is caring!

This recipe for Apple Cider Waffles is part of #NationalWaffleDay. They are SO good and I cannot wait to share the recipe with you.

I don't know about you, but waffles are my jam. I love them more than pancakes or french toast. You can turn waffles into savory waffles like my Cheesy Hashbrown Waffles. Or, you can turn them into amazing breakfast waffles like these Apple Cider Waffles.

We topped these delicious waffles with a homemade Caramel Apple Syrup that is hands down SO good.

How to Make Apple Cider Waffles

To make these waffles, all you need is a waffle iron and some easy pantry ingredients. Mix your waffle batter together and then place it in your waffle iron.

Bake until your waffles are done. I mean, that's not hard at all right? When they get done, you can simply split them in half like we did or you can serve them whole.

How to make the Caramel Apple Syrup

To make the syrup, in a saucepan, combine 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup of apple cider, and then 1/2 cup of diced apple.

Cook on medium until the apples have softened and the liquid has reduced some.

I took a potato masher and mashed the apples some instead of leaving them whole. That is a personal preference. You can do whatever you want with the apples.

When you are ready to serve, pour the caramel apple syrup over your waffles. Then, enjoy!

These waffles would be great for brunch, or for dinner. I would eat them any day of the week at anytime. Like I said earlier, I LOVE waffles!
