Spiced Buttermilk Waffles with Apple Cider Compote


  • 2 cups apple cider
  • 2 tart apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter


  • 6 eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups brown rice flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon cloves


Pour the apple cider into a saucepan.  Add the apples, cinnamon, brown sugar and butter.  Bring to a simmer over medium low heat and simmer until thick and the apples are softened and caramelized.

When the compote is nearly ready, preheat your waffle iron.  In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, oil, buttermilk, vanilla and sugar.  In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves.  Whisk dry ingredients into the wet and whisk until smooth.

Pour batter into waffle iron and cook according to the manufacturer’s instructions.  Serve with the apple cider compote.

Yields 10 waffles, depending on the size of your waffle maker.
