Autumn Has Arrived

As soon as September hits, I am ready for all the fall decor and delectable food!

The autumn food scene begins with apple-picking and homemade cider, apple muffins, & more, and wraps up with pumpkin patches and everything from pumpkin spiced coffee to pumpkin cheesecake treats.

Between apple and pumpkin baked goods, it’s hard to pick my favorite! All I know is I cannot get enough.

What are some of your family’s staple fall goodies?

One dessert that has my heart is a pumpkin cheesecake roll. I can’t wait to do some recipe testing and fine-tune this recipe to share with you all!

Enjoy this cozy weather and snuggle up with some apple fritter waffles and other fall-themed comfort food!

How to: Make the Glaze

By far the easiest part, the delicious powdered sugar glaze is literally the icing on the cake!

You can’t have apple fritters without glaze, am I right?

This easy glaze only requires 3 ingredients and is ready in seconds.

In a small bowl, combine milk, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Whisk thoroughly and keep at room temperature until you serve.

If you won’t be eating right away, you can store the glaze in the fridge. It will harden, so just be sure to gently microwave it and stir to get fluid again.

Try not to lick the bowl clean while you wait for the apple fritter waffles to finish!

How to: Make Apple Fritter Waffles

Get ready for your mouth to water! These apple fritter waffles will have your whole house smelling of warm, baked apples and you may find a lot of wanderers ending up in your kitchen while you cook 

Use a large bowl and begin by mixing the wet ingredients: egg, milk, oil, and vanilla extract. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly. Then stir in the shredded apple and mix until well combined. Yum!

Pro tip: you can use a grater to shred the apples OR you can throw them in the food processor and they’re ready in seconds with 1/10 of the work.

Heat up the waffle iron and have a nonstick spray ready if you usually require one.

Pour the batter into the hot waffle iron and voila! This recipe should yield about 4 waffles and can easily be doubled.

When serving top with the glaze AND a little maple syrup for a picture-perfect breakfast dish!

      It’s an abundance of Yummy! All the recipes are available to anyone around the world and I just love that because I just shared this with my Croatian friend who loves sharing goodies with me! So yummy

  3. Beautiful presentation! I love the chopped fresh apples on top. Perfect pairing for Fall. We’ve been making waffles with almond flour and alternative natural sweeteners like Lakanto (monkfruit) or stevia to keep our waffles low carb.

  4. I have never heard of Apple fritter waffles! These look absolutely scrumptious! And they’re technically healthy right? Haha thank you for sharing!

  5. 4 stars
    These look lovely -after making them I would say they are decent waffles. The flavor was good but didn’t pop or remind me of fritters and the waffles were not particularly light or airy. It is possible the apples I used were not as flavorful or juicy as the authors and I think it is probably hard to attain a similar fritter flavor in this non-fried version. I would say this recipe is more of a good apple cinnamon waffle.
