What two flavors taste like fall more than cinnamon and apples? These Cinnamon Apple Waffles are full of sweet, spiced, well-balanced flavors. Grated fresh apples are mixed into a batter punctuated by cinnamon and brown sugar, with tangy yogurt keeping the sweetness in check. They’re crispy on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside – and I share my secrets on how to make them that way!

  • Yield: 5 to 6 waffles 1x


  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 1/8 cups all-purpose flour
  • 6 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/8 cups milk (can use whole, 2 percent or 1 percent)
  • 6 tablespoons Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 large apples, peeled, cored and grated (I like to use Braeburn or Granny Smith)
  • Maple syrup, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Place a wire rack on a baking sheet and place it in the oven.
  2. Melt the butter in the microwave or in a small pan over low heat. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, sugar, cinnamon, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Set aside.
  4. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, yogurt and cooled butter. Stir into the flour mixture just until combined – do not overmix.
  5. Place grated apples in a dishtowel and wring out moisture; stir into batter. Set aside to rest.
    Lightly coat waffle iron with oil and preheat to medium-high.
  6. Using a heaping 1/2 cup batter per waffle, cook waffles according to manufacturer’s directions until golden. Place cooked waffles in a single layer on the wire rack in the oven to keep warm and crisp up while making the next waffle.
  7. Serve warm, with warmed maple syrup on the side.
