these waffles bring all the flavor of your favorite apple cider doughnut straight to the waffle iron! made with less than 10 ingredients and done in 20 minutes, they’re a perfect way to celebrate the fall season!


  • 1 1/2 cups apple cider (*reduced to 1 cup – see note)
  • 1 1/4 cup white whole wheat flour (all-purpose works as well)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil


  1. Place apple cider in a saucepan over low heat and allow to simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15-20 minutes or until it has reduced to 1 cup*
  2. Preheat waffle iron
  3. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and apple pie spice in a medium mixing bowl.
  4. In a separate, smaller mixing bowl, whisk together egg, oil and cider.
  5. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and gently fold until just combined (with no remaining flour pockets).
  6. Place about 1/3 of the batter in each section of the waffle iron then cook.
  7. Remove and allow to cool on a wire rack for about 5 minutes, then enjoy!


  • Note that you don’t have to do this if you’re short on time.  It simply enhances the apple cider flavor.  If you choose to skip this step, use just 1 cup apple cider.
