These apple dutch baby waffles are puffy and gooey just a like a dutch baby pancake. Flavored with apples, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, and cinnamon.
These apple dutch baby waffles are sweet and gooey thanks to the delicious apple syrup. Apples are cooked in apple cider vinegar and sugar and reduced down to a sweet gooey syrup.
If you do not already have a waffle iron I would recommend the Cuisinart Waffle Iron. You can but it for less than $30, but honestly any waffle iron will do. Don’t waste a bunch of money on an overpriced waffle iron. It is just not worth it.
- ½ cup apple cider vinegar
- ½ cup water
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 granny smith apple, skinned and diced
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tbsp baking soda
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 cups milk
- ⅓ cup neutral oil
- Place the vinegar, water, cinnamon, vanilla, brown sugar and white sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and allow to simmer until liquid has reduced by half. This should take about 10 minutes. Pour the liquid into a measuring cup if needed to verify the liquid has reduced and then return the syrup to the stove.
- Add the granny smith apple and cooked for another 15 minutes until apples are cooked through.
- Set syrup aside in the refrigerator to cool while you prepare the waffle batter. The syrup will thicken a little bit.
- Mix the apple cider vinegar and plant-based milk in a small bowl and set aside for 10 minutes. Add the oil. Mix the flour/sift baking soda sugar, cinnamon in a large bowl.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk to combine. Do not over mix.
- Spray a pre-heated waffle iron with cooking spray. Pour ⅓ cup of the apple syrup into the waffle iron. Then pour ½ cup of waffle batter into the waffle iron and close. Cook until waffle has cooked through about 5 - 10 minutes.
- Top with extra apples and powdered sugar.
