Waffled Apple Bread

Waffled Apple Bread

It looks like a waffle, but it’s not! This is a fun and clever way to put a different spin on homemade apple bread. It still has the same delicious flavor, but with a crispier texture. And heck, it’s just plain fun. More on that later.

Golden Delicious apples were used for this recipe, but of course, you can use another type if you’d like. Just get on over to your local grocery store and pick up a couple of whatever you’re using. Better yet, take advantage of apple season and head to an orchard or a roadside market instead. While you’re there, pick up some of your favorite apple varieties, and grab a variety you’ve never tasted—you might just end up with a new favorite.

Do you need a little help deciding which variety of apple works best for a specific recipe or task?  If so, you’re not alone. It’s hard to choose between all those apples!

Here’s a little guide to help you choose among some of the more popular types. It’s just a guide, though, so if you like Granny Smiths for munching, you’ll get no judgement here.

Waffled Apple Recipe

INGREDIENTS (Serves 8)

1½ C. flour
¾ tsp. ground cinnamon
½ tsp. baking soda
⅛ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
1 egg plus 1 egg white
1 C. sugar
½ C. vegetable oil
1½ tsp. vanilla

Melted butter

DIRECTIONS

In a small bowl, mix flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a medium bowl, beat egg and egg white; add sugar and oil and beat until well blended. Stir in vanilla and the flour mixture. The batter will be thick. Toss in the chopped apple and walnuts and give it a good stir. Now you’re ready to waffle it.

Preheat your waffle iron and coat it lightly with oil.

Pour some batter onto the hot iron, close the lid, and bake until done.

Drizzle with a little melted butter and this bread will simply melt in your mouth.

This may easily become your favorite way to make quick bread!
