Apple Cider Waffles

In honor of Waffle Day, I decided to post a whole week of fun waffle recipes!  Enjoy!!!!!



Aren’t these a beautiful color??  They scream fall or cold weather, and their flavor is light but full.

Apple Cider waffles are another easy recipe.  I used just store bought apple cider, but if your hitting the apple orchard, it would be great with some fresh pressed!  I am thinking you could use apple juice as a substitute, but I would add a little more cinnamon.

These waffles do get a crispy crust on them.  The sugar content is high, and almost caramelizes when cooked in your waffle iron, giving the waffles a crispness.  I didn’t have a problem with burning, but I supposse if you started a batch and forgot about it, they would probably burn.  If your going to reheat them in the toaster, they might get a little brown.

I will also be posting a recipe for Buttermilk Syrup which is fabulous with these!
