I  love to play around with my waffle recipe as the seasons begin to change. It is one of the perfect dishes to incorporate new tastes and flavors. One thing that immediately comes to mind beginning in September through early spring is apple cider.

We go through more of my homemade apple cider during those months than we do any other drink, besides coffee and water, of course. We just can’t get enough of it! I keep some cold to drink straight out of the refrigerator when I want that refreshing flavor. It’s also perfect to drink warm on a chilly day – no matter warm or chilled, it is always welcome.

So the other morning, I decided to forgo my normal waffle recipe and make an Apple Cider Waffle recipe instead.

Oh my stars these are perfection on a plate and make the most delicious waffles and are great to serve anytime!

Apple Cider Waffles

Waffles have always been a favorite in our home. My son requests homemade waffles on many mornings for breakfast.

And if you love waffles or you love apples, I think you are going to love these waffles! Of course, I love both, so these are some of my favorites! The flavor is amazing!

These waffles fall into the category of not too much, as in they are “not too heavy” on the spices sort of recipe.

But, they are “not too little” either.

They are just right.

I like to serve them with warm maple syrup, a little bit of butter, and a large glass of apple cider or hot coffee to finish them off.

Recipe Review


  1. Has anyone had the waffles be too soft? They’re lovely, but not “crispy” which is what a “good” waffle should be. Any hints to fix this recipe to make it “crispier”? Thanks!

    1. Bev, I haven’t had these waffles be too soft. I have found that with some waffle makers I have to turn the temperature to a higher setting to get the edges as crisp as I like with some waffle recipes. I hope this helps.

    2. So, recipe is by far the best to me and my wife, and we changed it a little bit when our daughter came and her allergies to milk and eggs, we substituted egg with banana, and apple cider with 3/4 apple juice and 1/4 mineral sparkling water, it still works, and it’s still the best. One time i even changed the apple juice with pineapple juice, and half of the flour substituted with coconut flour, had to add more juice though, but they were awesome as well.

    3. Boris, thank you so much for your tips on substitutions for those with milk and egg allergies.
