Waffle Wednesday is here again! It has become my favorite day of the week. Today I bring you a cinnamon waffle with applesauce made form scratch. I love applesauce so much, sometimes I even put it on my toast!
Yields 1 Serving
1 3/4 C Flour
1 Tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp Salt
2 C Milk (I used almond milk)
1/3 C Veggie Oil
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
6 Large Apples
1/4 Cup Sugar (you can add more if you like your applesauce sweeter)
2 Tsp Lemon Juice
1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
For the waffle, combine all ingredients and mix well making sure not to have any lumps. Pour into the waffle iron. Easy peasy. As you can probably tell, I’ve been using the same base recipe for the waffle and adding different ingredients to create different variations.
For the applesauce, remove the skin and core and quarter apples. Be sure to remove all seeds. I used one of those apple cutters from Ikea for mine. It really cut down on the chopping time! Place your apples in a large saucepan filled with about an inch or two of filtered water. If your apples are more or less ripe, this will alter your cooking time. You need the apples to be very soft. If your apples are ripe, you’ll only need to simmer them for about 10 minutes and you can add time if they are less ripe. You shouldn’t need to simmer them for more than 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the pan and let them cool. Place in a blender or food processor to get rid of any large bits then add the lemon juice, sugar, and cinnamon. I add my ingredients in stages so that the sauce doesn’t come out too sweet or sour. You can add each ingredient little by little until you find a taste that’s just right!
I hope you make this waffle and enjoy it as much as I did. Next up: Peanut butter waffle with homemade jelly! Whoo-hoo! Also, happy first day of spring!
