Glazed Apple Fritter Waffle Doughnuts

(I am a compensated Great Day Farms and Goodrich Farms ambassador.)

Glazed Apple Fritter Waffle Doughnuts platedI’m not sure what gets me so excited over a perfectly prepared apple fritter, but I know it’s one of my most favoritest flavor combinations on the planet. Apples, cinnamon, and that sweet finger-licking glaze. Ohh my gosh.

Glazed Apple Fritter Waffle Doughnuts soaking in glazeWhile I love the apple fritter like a family member, I don’t love the calories associated with it. That cinnamony-apple goodness is too good to pass up, though. I felt I could eliminate the frying but still keep that delicious taste and slight crunch if I turned this into a waffle.

Total time
Recipe type: breakfast
Serves: 16
  • 2 cups organic all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup organic sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon fresh-ground Himalayan sea salt
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • ¼ cup organic butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 large Goldrich Farms eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Bourbon Madagascar vanilla extract
  • 2 cups chopped and peeled apples
  • 1½ cups organic powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
To make the waffles:
  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and mix well.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, and add the buttermilk, butter, and vanilla; whisk until combined.
  3. Add the liquid mixture to the flour mixture, and mix until fully combined.
  4. Add the apples and fold in gently, until the apples are fully incorporated.
  5. Preheat and spray your waffle iron, preparing your waffles as you would normally in your waffler (consult the waffler's instructions if need be).
  6. Once finished, set aside to cool, then cut along the lines into fourths.
To make the glaze
  1. Whisk together the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract until fully incorporated.
  2. Dip the cooled and cut doughnuts into the glaze, and let sit on a wire rack over a parchment paper lined cookie sheet for about 20 minutes, to let the glaze drip off and dry before serving.

This is one giant plate of happiness right here. The kids DEVOURED this like it was going out of style, omgosh!

Glazed Apple Fritter Waffle Doughnuts ready to eatThese weren’t over the top too sweet, either, which was fantastic. You could still put some syrup on top if desired (or, eat them section by section like a sandwich).

Kindergarten Awards

shocked to receive a second award

It was the tiniest piece of paper attached to his report card, a cut-out form letter that read "Your child will be receiving an award on Wednesday, February 11th. Please join us in the cafeteria for the awards assembly at 9:30am." He'd only been absent once this quarter, so I knew he was getting a "Faithful Attendance" award. (I kept them home on the day it iced, I didn't feel comfortable with just a two hour delay.) He was SO excited - he'd … Keep Reading

A few weeks ago, I joined a wonderful DIY community called "White Walls" for military wives who are looking for decoration inspiration to dress up our drab "white walls" in our military housing. Not all military housing communities are allowed to paint the interior of their homes, which leaves us coming up with creative ways to decorate our homes despite the lack of wall color. This community = seriously amazingness and brilliance. In my … Keep Reading

Hello, 2015. Not Sure About You Yet.

hubs and me

I want to celebrate you. I want to toast to a "fresh start" and "new opportunities" with the flip of a calendar page. I want to slough off the old and used from 2014 to reveal shiny and new for 2015, like so many others are doing. Hopeful. Excited. Ready. But I hesitate. Your calendar's days are already pre-planned for me for part of my year, colored in black with a void in our family's dynamic, as my husband is scheduled to travel … Keep Reading
