Grandpa’s Autumn Waffles

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


5 waffles (about 7-1/2 inches each)

These waffles make a delicious breakfast on a cold Iowa morning. This is my father's original recipe, and I've used it all my life. I've handed it down to my seven children, and I'm sure they'll pass it on to their own children!


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 medium tart apples, sliced
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup half-and-half cream
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Maple syrup, warmed


  1. In a large skillet, melt butter and brown sugar. Add the apples, raisins and pecans. Cook and stir over medium-low heat for 3-4 minutes or until apples are tender; keep warm.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, cream and butter; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  3. Bake in preheated waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions until golden brown. Serve with apple topping and maple syrup.
