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 for this Baked Caramel Apple Waffles with Crumb Topping. 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.
