I’m loving fall breakfast lately! I save these kind of recipes for the weekend and it always gives me something to look forward to. These waffles are one of my favorite fall breakfasts especially when topped with this incredibly delicious Apple Cider Syrup and a little sweetened whipped cream. The flavor combination of the two is simply irresistible and it couldn’t be more fall inspired.

Don’t skip the step of separating the eggs and whipping the whites in this recipe. Using the whipped egg whites will give you a fluffier, not so dense waffle. It may seem tedious, and more what I’m thinking is one extra dish to clean, but it’s worth that extra dish. It really just creates such a light and fluffy batter. Also, if you don’t plan on serving the waffles with the Apple Cider Syrup then you could definitely up the spices a little if you’d prefer (I don’t think it really needs more but some of you may).

Enjoy! Happy Fall!
