Churro Apple Pie Waffles

I envy anyone who hasn't ever had the chance to taste all the crispy, crunchy, spicy sugary goodness that is a Churro! 

For me I consider them one of those super hero desserts that are in the league of their very own, they join the ranks of other long time dessert rock stars. 

The classic chocolate chip cookies, chewy fudge brownies, warm apple pies and rich vanilla pound cakes each one with the over bearing potential to plumpt your from any diet plan with one simple taste of a crumb.  There's almost nothing that could make them any better, oh how enticing they are in their very own straightforward decadence! 

The ideas of these desserts reaching anything more gratifying are almost non-exsistent!.........Until you welcome them to a world of pecans, walnuts & salty peanuts, white chocolate chips, dulce de leche. To a land where mounds and mounds of sweet whip cream make a pillowy bed for ripe red strawberries.  OHhhh, the possibilities are limitless. 

So that brings me back to my amor for everything Churro, in the couple of weeks since I posted my original churro waffle recipe I've seen them loved and adored by many!

They've been blogged about and blogged about, pinned and repined, all of this attention has not only thrust me into the cielo ( heavens) but it has also let me see just how many of you adora ( adore) Chrurros as much as I do! 

Which in turn caused me once again to think of Churros in all their super hero glory. and that lead me to ponder whether or not just like their rock star counterparts Churro Waffles could be any more irresistible? 

And the answer was an undoutable Si!!

Roll them in cinnamon- sugar love, dip them in the beloved melted butter, but this time stuff them with plump, tangy apples.   Wow, The result was perfect marriage! 

An American classic with a Mexican twist.......and a new breakfast tradition is born from such sweetness!

1 teaspoon salt                                                                            

4 teaspoons baking powder

1 1/2 cups warm milk                                 

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
 3 shakes of cinnamon

For the churro topping-

1 cup of white sugar

1/2 cup cinnamon ( 1/4 cup if you don't love cinnamon like I do)

1/2 cup of melted butter

Apple Filling-  

1 can of Lucky Leaf Apples or any can you prefer

If your feeling really ambitious you can make your own apple filling.  I found a recipe here.                                                             


1.In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder and sugar; set aside.  Also at this time you can combine your churro topping and set it aside. Preheat waffle iron
2.In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Stir in the milk, butter and vanilla. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture;  Next fold in three shakes of cinnamon beat until blended
3. At this time you can also melt your 1/2 cup of butter used to pour over waffles. Next generously spray your waffle iron with no stick cooking spray. Than ladle a little batter into a preheated waffle iron, gently place on 4-5 apple slices ( depending on size of your waffle iron, smaller size use 2-3 apples. 

4. Next add more batter on top of apples, be careful not to overflow waffle maker. Cook the waffles until golden and crisp. ( Caution, mixing the apples directly into the batter yielded undesirable results for me)

5.Once fully cooked immediately pour melted butter on each side of the waffle and than dip each buttered side into your cinnamon/sugar churro mixture.

At this point if your mouth is not watering from the smell, check your pulse! 

Once again if your a sugar guru, you can add maple syrup. Or if your just interested into making this breakfast into a dessert add a creamy scoop of vanilla ice cream.......then proceed to devouring
( I mean sophisticatedly eating your waffles!)

The pie sets up beautifully! And smelled sooooo good while baking.

Absolutely delicious. My son,who is a dessert fanatic said they were the best thing he's ever had. I accidentally rated the recipe two stars somewhere and couldn't figure out how to change it. It was actually upsetting to us because they were sooo good ! We did cut the cinnamon as you said could be done and I think that was right for us.
