Start your morning off with a stack of these Pecan Caramel Apple Waffles. They are perfect for a cozy, delicious breakfast.
I know that fall is a couple of weeks away, but I can’t help but to start celebrating the season a little early! Fall is my absolute favorite season! After several months of record-breaking high temperatures in the south, I’m extremely ready for some cooler weather!
One of my favorite things about the fall season is the comforting, cozy food! Meals such as soups, stews, and warm breakfasts like pancakes and waffles just seem to make life a little bit happier! A few of my favorite fall flavors include apples, caramel, and pecans—which inspired me to create these AMAZING Pecan Caramel Apple Waffles with my homemade caramel sauce!
I know that this recipe sounds fancy, but it was very easy to make thanks to Kellogg’s® Eggo® Waffles! My kids are huge fans of frozen waffles, so any time we go to Publix, I always make my way towards the frozen breakfast aisle and stock up on a few boxes, including their new favorite flavors—Kellogg’s Eggo®. Salted Caramel, Thick & Fluffy Waffles and Kellogg’s Eggo® Apple Cinnamon Waffles. You can check out the Breakfast Time at Publix saving offers here!
We love Kellogg’s Eggo® Waffles because they are super convenient and they taste so good! It’s a great way to start the day, that’s why they’re our favorite waffle!
How to Make Homemade Caramel Sauce
This recipe was a cinch to make and the homemade caramel sauce makes you feel like you’re eating breakfast in an upscale brunch restaurant!
Start by melting down the sugar over medium-high heat. Whisk the sugar frequently during this process. It may start to clump together at first, but then it will start to melt shortly after that. The whole melting process should take about 10 minutes.
Once all of the clumps are gone, stop whisking and allow the sugar to cook a little more. The color will turn to a deeper amber color and you should notice a nutty aroma. As soon as this happens, remove it from the heat.
Next, add in the butter and whisk it in to the sugar. It’ll start to bubble up, but keep whisking. Add in the heavy cream and whisk until combined, and that’s it! Let it cool for about 15 minutes before using it, or pour it into a jar and store it in the fridge for a couple weeks. It’s easy to reheat and pour over pretty much anything such as these Pecan Caramel Apple Waffles!
How to Make Pecan Caramel Apple Waffles
Slice a few apples and gather some pecans. Toast a few of the Kellogg’s Eggo® Apple Cinnamon Waffles and start layering them with apples and pecans. (Serving Size 2 Apple Cinnamon waffles). You can choose to use cooked apples, but I like the taste and texture of freshly sliced apples. Drizzle a hefty amount of the homemade caramel sauce on top of the waffles and enjoy!
Now it’s time to curl up on a couch with a cozy blanket, a cup of coffee, and my stack of Pecan Caramel Apple Waffles!
Easy Homemade Caramel Sauce
Makes 1 and 1/2 cups
- 1 cup sugar
- 6 tbsp salted butter room temperature
- 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream room temperature
Pour sugar into an even layer in a large sauce pan. Heat on medium-high heat, whisking the sugar until melted. The sugar will clump up first, but will eventually completely melt. This will take about 10 minutes.
Once the sugar has melted, stop whisking and allow it to cook until the sugar turns to a little darker amber color and the mixture has a nutty aroma. Remove caramel from the heat.
Add butter and whisk until combined. The mixture will bubble up, but keep whisking until all the butter has melted and combined.
Next, slowly pour the heavy cream into the caramel and whisk until combined.
Cool for about 10-15 minutes before using, or store leftovers in a jar with a lid. Refrigerate up to 2 weeks.
