One of the flavors that I love to enjoy each fall is apple! I have done an apple week each fall over the past few years and this week is the week for 2017.
Fall is my favorite season besides the coolness in the air and the bright colored leaves, the food is part of the reason I love it so much. This recipe for Apple Fritter Waffles with Spiced Whipped Cream is actually my favorite from all of the tasty recipes I have lined up for you this week. I think this is partly due to the fact that I love breakfast and I also love waffles.
These waffles have that lovely light cinnamon flavor paired perfectly with pieces of tender, juicy apples. I have an apple cider syrup and caramel syrup that would be fabulous to serve with these. However, I chose to serve them with Buttermilk Syrup and finish them off with s spiced whipped cream. The Buttermilk Syrup also has a caramel like flavor to it.
Can I just tell you that the combination of those 3 things is a knock out! It was is spicy, caramely (I think I just made up that word and the next one), appley goodness!!!!!!!! I was in pure fall heaven eating these apple fritter waffles with spiced whipped cream! Included is the recipe for the spiced whipped cream for you as a bonus. I used apple spice in it but it could also be made with pumpkin spice to go along with a pumpkin recipe!
- 1 3/4 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 1/2 cups finely diced apple
- In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
- In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, vanilla, and brown sugar.
- Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and whisk together just until smooth. Then fold in the diced apple.
- Cook batter according to your waffle maker instructions. I use ½ batter for my regular waffle iron and 1 cup for my Belgian waffle maker. Makes 8 regular waffles or 4 Belgian waffles.
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 tsp apple pie spice (can also use pumpkin pie spice)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- Add all of the ingredients to a medium bowl and beat with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form.
