Between a doughnut and a waffle – simply scrumptious! This recipe is adapted from Cooking With Janica. However, this one is not fried. And for those that like to freeze – good news! You can freeze them and later reheat in the toaster oven on medium heat. They can also be a nice dessert with a scoop of ice cream, like apple pie a la mode.
Apple fritter waffles
In a medium sized bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt, and cinnamon.
Beat the yogurt, milk, eggs, vanilla, and butter until creamy.
Add the wet to the dry and mix with a spatula just until combined. Do not overmix - it will be thick, almost like a cookie dough.
Add the diced apples and mix with the spatula just until it's combined.
Preheat the waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions. Add a portion to the waffle iron (I like 1/2 cup for a medium waffle). Close it well to spread the dough. Cook until brown, and serve right away with a vanilla glaze or maple syrup.This dough tends to stick. If this happens, use a vegetable oil spray (like Pam) between each waffle.
Cool on a rack. Place in a sealed zip lock bag to freeze. To reheat, place the frozen waffle directly in the toaster oven until it is hot and crispy.
