This is my new favorite waffle recipe! I had no buttermilk on hand, so I added a tablespoon of vinegar to 1 cup of regular milk and let it stand for five minutes. To save time i used pumpkin pie space in place of the other spices. I also halved the recipe as I was only making pancakes to serve myself and my sister. The recipe only made 6 waffles this way. These waffles were light, fluffy, and crisp...everything a waffle should be! Will definitely make again, maybe I'll attempt the apple syrup next time?

so good! I replaced the butter/oil with applesauce (to make it healthier) and reduced the sugar by about one-third. They were delish!

Yummy but I made many changes: substituted one cup whole wheat flour and reduced butter to 1tsp to make healthy. Didn't have apple juice so used water. Didn't have apples so used peaches. Didn't have pumpkin so used freshly roasted butternut squash. The result? Deliciousness that had my guests begging for more! Leftovers froze well.

We are Vermonters, And we are supposed to be loyal to maple syrup, right? Well, The Cider Syrup is just as good (Or maybe just a little better!) than Maple Syrup. The Cider Syrup packs a big flavor and the consistency is perfect. I did reduce the sugar by two Tablespoons. Haven't got around to trying the waffle recipe yet. We had the syrup with our whole wheat pancakes and it was fabulous.

I haven't tried the syrup, but these waffles are fantastic. I added some chocolate chips to part of the batch for my kids. Yum!

Made this for dinner one day. It's a great recipe, although a bit time consuming. I did everything according to recipe and it was delicious. Will certainly make it again.

Time consuming but certainly worth it. It was ALL delish!

Fabulous. Completely worth the time involved. Switched out the oil with applesauce and used less sugar in the batter. Would use less in the sauce next time also to let the sweetness of the apples shine through.

I didn't make the syrup, but the waffles were great. I halved the recipe, and it only made four Belgian waffles so next time I will make the whole recipe. Definitely worth the effort!

This recipe is great. It does take a long time but it is really awesome for a special occasion. On everyday mornings or nights I just make the waffles and the apple cidar syrup since the cooked apples are what take the longest. I definitely recommend trying the entire recipe at least once, though

This recipe looked so delicious and was rated so well, I tried twice...and failed twice, to get it to work out well. The Apples and Syrup turned out wonderfully. The Waffles, however, were always a soggy mushy disaster. I actually made this a 3rd time, since I was so determined to make it work, and used the America's Test Kitchen recipe for the waffles, and kept the myrecipes.com part for the syrup and apples and when put together, the recipe finally worked.

Syrup is amazing. Worth making all on its own.
