Baked Caramel Apple Waffles with Crumb Topping Recipe

Baked Caramel Apple Waffles with Crumb Topping

Baked Caramel Apple Waffles with Crumb Topping 

This recipe was totally inspired by Paula Dean. She has a recipe for a killer, Baked French Toast Casserole with Maple Syrup. This is where the inspiration came from. Thank you darlin’! She’s one of my foodie heroes. I love the woman. She reminds me of the women in my family, on my dads side. One day I would like to meet her. Yeah, it’s on my bucket list. :)

This dish could easily pass for breakfast or dessert. If serving for dessert, may I suggest a la mode style?! Bring. It. On. Baaaby. Whoops, forgot for a moment I was watching my calories. :(

Don’t let the ingredients list/directions fool you, this was easily put together!

Ingredients

  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 2 boxes (11.6 oz.) each Eggo thick & fluffy – cinnamon brown sugar waffles
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup 1% milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • pinch of allspice
  • sprinkle of salt

Caramel Apple Topping

  • 3 large granny smith apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch caramel topping + extra for drizzling the crumb topping.

Crumb Topping

  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup salted butter

Directions

  1. Spray a 3 qt. baking dish with non-stick cooking spray, set aside.
  2. Arrange 10 Eggo waffles in your baking dish, in two rows, overlapping each one. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs,  1 1/2 cups heavy cream, 1/2 cup 1% milk, 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon sugar, 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, pinch of allspice, sprinkle of salt. Pour this mixture over the waffles, making sure that each waffle is covered evenly. If needed spoon some of the mixture into the waffle indentations. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or until the waffles soak up most of the milk/egg mixture. You may have a bit of the milk/egg mixture left over in the bottom of the baking dish, this is okay.
  3. Using the same large bowl that you used for the milk/egg mixture let’s make the caramel apple topping by combining diced apples, 1/3 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon allspice and 1/2 cup butterscotch caramel topping; stir. Set aside.
  4. Once waffles have absorbed most of the milk/egg mixture, remove from the refrigerator. Spread caramel apple topping over the waffles.
  5. Let’s make the crumb topping. In the same large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup salted butter, mix together with a fork or pastry blender to make pea sized crumbles. Top caramel apple topping with crumb topping. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F. oven for 45 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and drizzle generously with butterscotch caramel topping. Serve as is or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.

Did you know that you can make Caramel Dip with only ONE ingredient.  All you need is a can of Sweet and Condensed Milk.

First take the label off your can, then place the unopened can in your crock pot.  Cover the can with water, turn the crock pot on high put the lid on and WALK AWAY! Set the timer for 4 hours, open the can and enjoy some amazing caramel.   Yes easy as that you will have yummy caramel dip.

 I was away longer than I thought so mine cooked about 6 hours… oops.  So it was a little darker than normal.  If you cook it 4 hours it will be a lighter golden caramel color.  If you do not have a crock pot you can cook it on the stove, bring to a boil for an hour… but I would not leave it unattended.  That is why I like to do mine in the crock pot.

Dont forget to check out the great deal we recently posted on a great price on a Slow Cooker

How to make butterIt’s Matt. I made Butter in a Jar back when I was a kid as a youth activity. It was very easy and just took some time. So the other day at the store I grabbed some Heavy Whipping Cream and planned a night with the kids to make butter. It is really easy and will provide some tasty and easily home made butter!

home made butter in jar

Ingredients:

  • Heavy Whipping Cream – any amount 6 cups makes about 1 pound of butter
  • Salt – 1/2 teaspoon per pound of butter- optional, used for preserving butter
  • Jar – with lid, any size, baby food jars are great for kids to make it with

home made butter heavy whipping creamDirections:

Pour Heavy Whipping Cream into jars no more then 3/4 the way full. It is best to leave room for the shaking and turning action. Next begin shaking! And Shake and Shake. Some music to shake too makes it fun for the kids and helps pass time. Something with a fun and quick beat. The best way I figured to shake the jar was to hold it length wise in my hands with the lid in my palms and the base of the jar wedge in my forearms.

It takes about 5 minutes before you notice a thickening forming in the jar. This heaviness is the beginning of the fat changing and sticking together. At this point you really just have a thick whip cream in the jar. Keep shaking. At this point the jar edges will look like:
home made butter foam

 

As another 5-10 minutes pass you will notice the jar filling with the foamy cream.  It feels as if there is no room in the jar as the thick Heavy Cream is aerated even more with the shaking, but keep shaking. It will look like this:

Keep shaking and don’t stop you are almost done when it gets thick. I have heard some add a large marble to the thick foam. But I don’t think it really matters. Just the pressure of the shaking will continue the fat to congeal together. Don’t worry if you don’t think the foam is “churning” or rotating in the jar, gravity and pressure is still working to form the butter.
Before you know it you will see the foam separate and a thin liquid forms in the jar. That thin liquid is buttermilk! The butter is in the last few moments of shaking. Keep shaking until the butter or mass inside is a consistent size.

At this point you can separate the buttermilk out and save it for biscuits or pancakes and other fun recipes. Then you can add the 1/2 teaspoon salt which is optional. Some say the taste is different, but the main reason is to preserve the butter. Now with the remaining butter you can place it in a small container for refrigeration and easy of using it. So congrats you just made you own butter!  Enjoy your work!

As the butter sets you may see drips of buttermilk on the butter. Just let it drip off and drain.

If you enjoyed making your own butter, then you will enjoy making your own cheese!
