There is nothing, I say nothing, better than a really cold and drizzly morning, that Daddy is still out hunting, and your two adorable boys looking at your with bright blue beggin' eyes for waffles.
So, we had an extra couple cups of orchard apple cider in the fridge and we whipped these up in no time.
Very satisfying and hearty but not too sweet.
Personally, I'll add a bit more molasses the next time but maybe you like your waffles not-so-sweet.
ps-make a double batch. Waffles freeze perfectly and it's just as easy to make a double batch and give your kiddos, healthy, homemade versions of Eggos.
Come to think of it, my boys don't know what an Eggo is.
And I think that's a great thing.
Whole Wheat Apple Cider Waffles
Makes around 8.
2 cups whole wheat flour (or a combo of regular and wheat)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon table salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1-2 tablespoons molasses...up to you how sweet you want it!
2 cups apple cider
Combine (or sift, if you aren't lazy like me...) all the dry ingredients.
Add molasses, eggs, and cider. (And really, you should whisk these together first. Again, lazy here.)
Mix until just combined. Lumps are a-okay.
Preheat your waffle iron and spray with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
Prepare according to your iron's instructions.
Slather with butter and warm maple syrup and enjoy!
Would be fantastic with a warm apple compote on top. If one wasn't so lazy.
