Apple Pie Sourdough Waffles

Apple Pie Sourdough Waffles

For this month’s Sourdough Surprises we focused on Pancakes! YUM! Because its now September and the beginning of fall and back to school, I was feeling apple pies like no others! I decided to incorporate diced apples, vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice and toasted chopped pecans into my favorite waffle batter and OH MY GOSH I freaking looooove how they turned out.  Also, please forgive the lack of pictures for this post. As it turns out, getting down on the floor of your porch to snap a few photos isn’t as easy with a 9 month baby belly attached to you, and it was kind of hard to get any good angles. Add to the fact that it was raining and I was hungry and really wanted to eat these waffles, I wasn’t really in the mood to spend forever taking pictures. So there you have it. Did you know I take all my pictures on the floor of my back step?

Check out all the other amazing sourdough waffles and pancakes that were made this month for Sourdough Surprises!

    Gah, I love the fall flavours in these waffles! So yummy.

    Also, I'm guessing by the fact that you said "baby belly" that he/she hasn't arrived yet… Sending you good birthing vibes when the time comes! 🙂

    Haha, I take a lot of my photos kneeling down on the floor next to the patio door – it's where all the light is. Have to watch the cat doesn't stick her face in the food though…

    Your waffles sound sensational. My stomach actually did an excited little 'eee autumn!' somersault when I read the ingredients list. Ohhh, this time of year is the best.

    Hope you're well. 🙂

    They look delicious from the pictures you have (I'd rather eat than take pictures myself!) Nice job!
