Sweet Caramel Apple Waffles



  • 3 tpbs unsalted butter, plus 8 tbsps (1 stick) melted butter

  • 6 Honey Crisp (or your fav) apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/4-inch slices

  • 1/4 cup plus 1/3 cup sugar

  • 1/4 brown sugar

  • Juice of half an orange

  • 1 tsp. cornstarch

  • 1 1/2 tsp. @tasticspice sweet

  • 3/4 tsp. salt

  • 2 tsps vanilla paste

  • 3 eggs, separated

  • 1 3/4 cups buttermilk

  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

  • 1 tsp. baking soda

  • Whipped cream for serving


1. In a fry pan over medium-high heat, melt the 3 tbsps butter. When the foaming subsides, add the apples, the 1/4 cup regularand brown, the cornstarch, 1/2 tsp. of the @tasticspice sweet, 1/4 tsp. of the salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the apples are tender and the sugar mixture becomes syrupy, about 18 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in 2 tsp. of the vanilla. Cover the caramelized apples to keep warm until ready to serve.

2. Preheat a waffle maker on medium-high heat according to the manufacturer's instructions. Preheat an oven to 200°F.

3. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, buttermilk, the 8 Tbs. melted butter and the remaining 1/2 tsp. vanilla. Over a sheet of waxed paper, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, the 1/3 cup sugar, and the remaining 1 tsp. @tasticspice sweet, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg and 1/2 tsp. salt. Add the flour mixture to the yolk mixture and whisk until smooth.

4. In another bowl, using an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the egg whites on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form, about 1 minute. Using a rubber spatula, fold 1 cup of the whites into the batter, then carefully fold in the remaining whites.

5. Pour about 1/3 cup batter into each well of the waffle maker and close the lid. Cook until the waffles are golden brown and crisp, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer the waffles to a wire rack set on a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven. Repeat to cook the remaining batter.

6. Serve the waffles hot with the caramelized apples and whipped cream. Makes twelve 4-inch square waffles.
