  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 apple chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

For the garnish:

  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • ice cream


  • Prepare the dry ingredients. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder and baking soda.
  • Prepare the wet ingredients. In another bowl, lightly beat the egg, milk and melted butter.
  • Core and chop the apple.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix just until blended. DO NOT overmix.
  • Throw in the chopped apple, cinnamon and nutmeg. Fold in gently but thoroughly.
  • Spray the waffle iron with oil or brush with melted butter.
  • Drop dollops of the batter into the waffle iron (a little less than a quarter cup for small waffles; about 1/3 cup for full-sized waffles) and cook on "medium" setting.
  • Place the 1/4 cup melted butter in a shallow bowl.
  • Stir together the 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg in another shallow bowl.
  • When the waffles can be handled without scorching your fingers, dip both sides of each waffle in melted butter then coat with the cinnamon sugar.
  • Serving suggestion: Stack two to three waffles and top with ice cream.


If you want to serve these apple cinnamon waffles to a big bunch of people over the holidays, make the waffles a day or two ahead. Cool and freeze in a resealable bag. Thaw an hour before needed. Reheat in the bread toaster, dip in melted butter, coat with cinnamon sugar and top with ice cream.
