Apple Cinnamon Waffles with Apple Compote

Apple Cinnamon Waffles with Apple Compote

Apple Cinnamon Waffles with Apple Compote is so amazing and perfect for this cooler, autumn weather.

I just love my weekend to start on a happy note. Preferably with warm waffles or pancakes, and a hot cup of coffee.

I made these more than a couple of times last autumn as well as winter season. My family just love warm and cozy breakfasts, especially when we are all still in our PJs.

Anyhow, I really love pancakes, but waffles hit the spot every single time. Well, in particular with a flavor and aroma when I make these waffles with apple compote.


Do you like apple picking? I absolutely love getting apples from our local farms. To be honest, I am a huge supporter of our farmers, as we all should.

With that being said, getting a wooden case of delicious, locally grown apples is pure bliss. They are magical and so juicy.

The kids enjoy apple picking as well, so when we make something like these waffles with apples is just labor of love in my eyes.

Autumn to me means roasting sweet pumpkin or winter squash, chestnuts, and apple compote. When I was a little girl I could not wait for the fall season to arrive.

I didn’t have an opportunity to eat waffles like this when I was a child, but I sure loved my apple compote and crepes.

Apple Cinnamon Waffles are so easy and tasty. They make a perfect weekend breakfast or a brunch.


  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 3 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 3 Eggs separated
  • 1 and 1/4 cups milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 apple finely chopped or shredded
  • Butter for greasing the waffle iron

Apple Compote

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 4 Apples chopped, (Honeycrisp)
  • 3 Tablespoons Maple Syrup, or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Pinch of Salt


  1. Preheat the waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  2. In a bowl sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In a second bowl use whisk (I use small from the electric mixer) to beat together the egg yolks and sugar until sugar is completely dissolved and eggs have turned a pale yellow.
  4. Add oil, and milk to the eggs and whisk to combine very well. Combine the egg-milk mixture with the flour mixture and whisk just until well blended. Do not over mix.
  5. In the third bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, few minutes or so.
  6. Gently fold egg whites into the waffle batter.
  7. Add a finely chopped or shredded apple in the mixture and fold it again.
  8. Lightly brush butter on the waffle iron and pour enough batter in iron to just cover waffle grid, about 1/2 cup, of course, this depends on the size of your waffle maker.
  9. Close and cook as per manufacturer's instructions -until golden brown.

Apple Syrup

  1. In the sauce or frying pan add butter and coat it well over the medium-high heat.
  2. Add chopped apples, and saute apples for about 3-4 minutes turning them so they could get a nice color on all sides.
  3. Add Maple Syrup, cinnamon and lemon juice, and just a pinch of salt.
  4. Cook for a couple of minutes or until the sauce is thick and all diced apples are coated well with the sauce.
  5. Drizzle over the waffles and scoop apples and use them as a topping. You can also add nuts. I used almonds, but you can add walnuts or hazelnuts, etc.


You may try other fruit or sweet potatoes, maybe sauteed bananas... be adventures!

You can use Gluten-Free Flour and sugar-free pancake syrup instead of maple.
