An easy, fluffy waffle recipe with just the right amount of crisp on the outside, and the perfect level of sweetly spiced apple butter flavor on the inside. This warm waffle recipe will be a breakfast/ brunch favorite!
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ cup milk
  • ½ cup Musselman’s apple butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • nonstick cooking spray for the griddle
  • For the Cinnamon Syrup:
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water, cold
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat your waffle iron. I set mine to 4, which seems to be just right (see your waffle iron’s instruction manual for guidance on settings).
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In another bowl (or I like to use a large liquid measuring cup) whisk together the milk, Musselman’s apple butter, eggs,and vegetable oil.
  4. pour the liquid mixture into the dry mixture and stir to combine.
  5. Spray the waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray and spoon the batter onto the heated griddle. Close and cook according to your waffle iron’s instructions. Mine takes about 3 or 4 minutes to cook completely.
  6. To make the cinnamon syrup, add the brown sugar and cinnamon to a small saucepan. In a liquid measuring cup, whisk the cornstarch into the cold water. Pour it into the pan with the brown sugar and cinnamon and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Stir and continue cooking until the brown sugar dissolves completely. Remove it from the heat, stir in the butter and vanilla.
  7. Serve the Apple Butter Waffles with the Cinnamon Syrup (and whipped cream!)
  8. NOTE: For extra fluffy waffles you can separate the eggs and beat the whites separately until stiff peaks form. If you go this route, fold the whites in at the very end, after the batter is mixed and before you add it to the waffle iron.
