  • 2 cups apples diced small
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 and ½ cups whole milk
  • cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Caramel Sauce

  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup cream or whole milk
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Saute' apples in butter in a large saute' pan 3 to 5 minutes until heated through but still firm. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In another bowl combine eggs, milk and oil.
  • Heat waffle baker.
  • Combine wet and dry ingredients, add apples and stir until combined. Do not stir too much.
  • Spray waffle baker with non-stick spray.
  • Ladle batter onto waffle baker being careful not to over fill.
  • My waffle baker is a thick Belgian type make and has a setting to set for how crisp you want them. I set mine to medium, this takes 2 to 3 minutes to cook. Adjust your baker to the desired doneness you desire. Serve with warm caramel sauce.

For caramel sauce

  • Melt butter and sugar over medium heat in a medium saucepan. Stir occasionally. Allow mixture to simmer until it starts to bubble and look foamy. Cook 3 to 5 minutes. CAREFULLY, stir in milk, salt and vanilla. Remove from heat. Serve with hot waffles.


Keep waffles crisp by placing on a wire rack in a 200 degree oven until the entire batch is cooked.
