Enjoy a comforting, tasty breakfast you won’t soon forget with these Homemade Waffles, topped with mouthwatering Apple Cider Syrup!
My family has always been big on homemade breakfast foods. If we don’t have time in the morning to enjoy something warm, we simply eat breakfast for dinner!
My kids request waffles multiple times a week. Whenever I decide to appease their pleas, I’m always amazed at how much waffle can fit into their little tummies! They come running back for seconds and thirds! 🙂
My mom used to make my siblings and me waffles for breakfast often. In fact, today’s recipe comes straight from her kitchen and is the one I grew up eating and loving. If we were really lucky, she’d serve up her famous homemade Apple Cider Syrup to go with them.
I’ve got the best news! You get a double dose of goodness today with two phenomenal recipes that are on repeat at my house. These foods give me all the warm fuzzies inside whenever I get to make them for my own kids. There’s just something so special about sharing a meal with your children that came from your childhood.
A top notch waffle maker is a kitchen staple, especially when cranking out waffles at the volume we do. Which is why we have all the heart eyes for our Lagrange waffle maker!
It’s almost like having a personal chef. It cooks our waffles to our exact specifications every time!
It includes a button where you can set the texture for soft or crispy. Which do you prefer? My favorite is crispy on the outside, soft on the inside!
A green light turns on and a beeping sound signals that your waffles are ready! You can also adjust the dial for a light or dark brown preference.
The result is a warm waffle that will suit your fancy impeccably!
If you look closely, you can see the buttons in the center that allow you to switch out the cast aluminum, non-stick waffle plates to instead make paninis, grilled sandwiches and more.
And, because one is just never enough, you can make two waffles at a time!
The Lagrange waffle maker is available for purchase at Bed Bath & Beyond. With the holidays just around the corner, I’m sure you can think of friends, co-workers, and family members who would love to receive one as a gift! I know I can!
And now I can’t wait to share these favorite family recipes with you! Combined, they are absolute breakfast heaven! I mean, who could say no to Homemade Waffles with Apple Cider Syrup as an added bonus?
Waffles with Apple Cider Syrup
- 2 c. all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 3 tsp. sugar
- 3 large eggs-separated
- 1 c. milk
- 4 Tbsp. vegetable oil
- Apple Cider Syrup:
- 1 c. sugar
- 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
- 2 c. apple juice
- For the waffles, in a large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Carefully separate the egg yolks from the whites, placing the yolks in the bowl with the flour mixture and the whites in a separate bowl. Whip egg whites with an electric mixer until fluffy peaks form. Next, add milk and oil to the flour and egg yolk bowl and mix well with an electric mixer. Fold in egg whites using a spatula. Don't over do it with the folding. You'll want to still see bits of fluffy eggs white peeking through the batter. Cook to liking using a waffle maker (my favorite is Lagrange!).
- For the syrup, in a small sauce pan, whisk together sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg until combined. Pour in apple juice and whisk until sugar mixture is dissolved. Turn on stove top to medium-high heat and allow it to come to a complete boil, stirring occasionally. Syrup will thicken as it boils and as it stands. Serve warm, over waffles.
These recipes are very near and dear to my heart. I hope you get to enjoy them soon!
So tell me-how often do you eat waffles? And what is your favorite way to enjoy them? Soft, crispy, swimming in syrup or just a little, with or without butter, etc.? I’d love to hear!
