SOUTHERN FRIED APPLES & SPICED WAFFLES
In the south, we just love our Fried Apples. We serve them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. Fried Apples are also a beautiful dessert as a topping on ice cream, cake, and waffles. I fix spiced waffles topped with vanilla ice cream and fried apples as a delicious dessert. YUM!
Simple Spiced Waffles
For breakfast, I make these simple spiced waffles using a cake mix and serve them topped with fried apples. You can find Fried Apples in the south in many restaurants, including Cracker Barrel, as a side item.
Pure Maple Syrup
My secret ingredient to Best Southern Fried Apples is Pure Maple Syrup. Most recipes for Southern Fried Apples include lots of sugar, but I add the maple syrup. It is amazing! Not only do the spice waffles smell amazing, but the aroma of the apples with the cinnamon and nutmeg draws everyone to the kitchen.
Use this easy recipe to help teach your children how to cook. I had one kid cut the apples. I had another kid measure the ingredients for the apples while someone else worked on mixing up the spiced waffle batter. You can get everyone involved by helping with the Best Southern Fried Apples.
