Notes

  • 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.

  • No waffle iron?  Just add a little milk or extra cider to thin the consistency and make into pancakes.  Or try this apple cider pancake recipe!
  • Storage: Waffles will keep in an airtight container for ~4 days in the fridge or 2 months in the freezer.
  • If you can’t find apple pie spice: Make your own by combining 1 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon, 1 1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg and 1 teaspoon ground allspice
