Ingredients

For The Waffles

  • 1 envelope of active yeast
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 3/4 cup of warm milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of melted butter
  • 2 tsp Rodelle Vanilla extract
  • 3 cups of All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar

For the Caramel Apple Filling

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 8 apples – peeled cored and diced

Instructions

To Make The Waffles

  • Sprinkle the yeast and sugar over the warm milk in a small bowl. Allow to sit for at least 5 minutes. The yeast should be foamy at this point.
  • Whisk together the eggs, butter, and vanilla until evenly combined. Whisk in the milk.
  • In a large bowl combine the flour, cinnamon, and salt, Whisk the dry ingredients together until evenly combined.
  • Make a well in the center of the flour, and pour in the egg mixture.
  • Whisk until everything is well incorporated. The dough should form into a ball.
  • Cover and let rise until doubled, approximately 30 to 45 minutes.
  • Gently stir in the sugar.
  • Divide into 16 individual golf ball sized balls and let rest about 15 minutes.

To Make The Caramel Apple Filling

  • Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Stir in the water, white sugar, and brown sugar, and bring to a boil. Reduce the mixture to a simmer, stirring occasionally.
  • In a medium bowl, combine diced apples and caramel sauce, leaving about 1/2-3/4 cup of caramel aside to pour over the waffles.
  • Heat the Nordic Ware Stovetop Waffler according the the manufacturer's instructions. Brush the inside with melted butter.
  • Stretch one of the balls of dough out a bit and place it one of the waffle iron pockets, so that it covers the majority of it. Quickly place a heaping spoonful or two of the filling in the middle of the dough. Top with a second ball of stretched out waffle dough. Repeat three times, until all the pockets are filled.
  • Gently close the waffle iron and flip per the manufacturers instructions. All the toppings will meld into the dough.
  • Cook for about 2-3 minutes, or until your waffles are nicely browned and cooked through.
  • Remove the waffles from the iron to a waiting plate. Continue with the remaining waffles until all are cooked.
  • To serve, top with a spoonful of apple filling, a drizzle of caramel sauce, and a dollop of freshly whipped cream.
  • If you’re really in the mood for dessert, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!

Notes

If using a full size waffle iron, divide the dough into 8 baseball sized balls, and it will yield 4 large waffles, at one serving each.
