Apple cinnamon waffles

Ok, so I’ve been feeling good this week (second week of my second round of chemotherapy), so I’ve been enjoying time in the kitchen, cooking up yummy meals for the family. This week I bought a new waffle maker that cooks 4 waffles at a time, as opposed to our original one, which only made two. It means our big family of six gets their breakfast sooner! 

Enter apple-cinnamon waffle goodness. Monte is a big fan of anything apple, so when he mentioned apple-cinnamon waffles this morning, I was happy to experiment. Basically, I added apples and spices to my usual waffle recipe, using butter instead of oil. And, they were good! Really good!

We ate some of our waffles with maple syrup – very tasty! And we ate some with peanut butter – very very tasty! The peanut butter seemed to really bring out the apple flavour. So good. Too good. Just writing this is making me hungry. 

Apple cinnamon waffles


  • 2 cups self raising flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon 
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ground allspice 
  • 2 large Granny Smith apples, chopped/grated
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 150g butter, melted 


  • Mix dry ingredients 
  • Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl 
  • Add apples to dry ingredients and toss to coat well
  • Add wet ingredients to apple mixture and mix to combine
  • Let mixture stand for 5 minutes, meanwhile heat waffle maker/iron/oven (if using waffle trays)
  • Add 1-2 cups of waffle mixture to waffle plate (follow manufacturer’s instructions) and cook for about 5 minutes (longer if baking in an oven) or until the waffles are the level of ‘toastedness’ you prefer
  • Serve warm with desired toppings: cream, maple syrup, peanut butter, salted caramel, dulce de leche etc 

I hope you enjoy these waffles as much as we did! I’m looking forward to experimenting with my new machine!
