oh. em. gee. i could not be more excited to share this waffle recipe with you. are they breakfast? are they dessert? whatever you decide on, i will not judge you. to break it down: a cinnamon waffle, topped with fresh apple pie filling, drizzled in scratch made salted caramel & topped with a healthy amount of fresh whip cream. i am in love with salted caramel & could put it on just about anything (AND I WILL). i am thinking a salted caramel apple pie next, what do you think?! after a rainy, but beautiful wedding weekend spend in muskoka.. it's waffle time!


for the salted caramel

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

for the waffle

  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

for the apple pie filling

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 large crisp apples
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg


  • for the caramel: in a saucepot add the sugar and water. bring it to a boil while wiping down the crystals that form on the sides of the pan using a pastry brush. continue to boil until the mixture turns to a deep amber colour (approximately 5 minutes). be sure not to burn the caramel! it will go from a deep amber to burnt sugar VERY quickly. remove from heat and immediately whisk in the butter and cream. cool to room temperature before serving.

  • for the waffle: in a mixing bowl using a wooden spoon add egg, milk, butter, oil, vanilla, and brown sugar. stir until well combined. sift in flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. stir until ingredients are just mixed in. do not over mix! using a waffle maker place 1/4 cup of batter in the center of each waffle. cook until golden brown.

  • for the apple pie filling: in a saucepan over medium-low heat melt butter. add sliced apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. stir until the apples are soft & brown.

  • to assemble: layer waffles with apple pie filling, drizzle in caramel & top with whip cream.
