Apple season is underway and the weather is slowly evolving here. There’s no better way to wake up on a crisp morning than with the scents of the season filling your home. These spiced waffles with caramel apple syrup are the perfect Fall breakfast, when all you want to do is stay in your pajamas curled up by the fire with a cup of warm apple cider. Just like my macadamia waffles (and cashew waffles in the book), these are as simple as throwing everything into a blender and then letting the waffle iron do the work for you. And you won't want to skip the syrup. The underlying tones of caramelized honey and butter mixed with the tart flavors of apples complete this blissful seasonal breakfast.
By the way, people often ask me about the use of waffle irons and the non-stick coatings. We eliminated all teflon a long time ago in my kitchen, but every once in a while, I think it's ok. We can't be perfect and waffles are too fun to pass up so I let it slide. Although, I did just find this $20 cast iron waffle maker online and may have to try it out and see how it fares! If anyone already has one and likes it, please let me know because I would be thrilled to switch!
