It is now fall and it’s time for my annual week of apple recipes. I always have a hard time picking just a few to share. We are starting off the week with delicious apple butter waffles with cinnamon syrup.
This waffles recipe is simple. There is no need for seperating eggs and whipping whites with this one. However, you always can if you want fluffier waffles. However, it isn’t nesessary with this recipe.
All the flavor in the waffles comes stictly from the waffle butter. If you have’t used apple butter before you can find it with the jams in the store. It’s kind of like a super cinnamon apple sauce. It adds so much flavor with just a small amount.
To finish these apple butter waffles off, you top them with a homemade cinnamon syrup. The syrup is made using brown sugar, cinnamon, water, cornstarch, butter, and vanilla. This syrup adds even more fall flavor but isn’t too sweet.
