Hard cider waffles

Happy Friday Happy Weekend Breakfast Planning.

I'm spending the weekend working/maybe some home organization shopping because I'm a mature 27 year old but also I love to procrastinate.

Hard Cider Waffles // Wit & Vinegar

These waffles have been something I've been wanting to throw together for a while now. I've got the ricotta waffles from the book on here that are actually really really good, but they require the having of ricotta in the fridge and unless you're a Giada you probably have to run to the grocery store to grab that, not a good look for a waffle emergency.

I had a bunch of leftover hard cider from the holidays so I wanted to utilize it for something that wasn't drinking 4 by yourself while watching tv, and I landed on waffles. If you can make waffles with club soda and beer then cider is an obvious answer to the equation.

The carbonation helps give some air that you'd normally get from whipping egg whites and the cider itself lends a nice yeasty flavor you'd normally get from a belgian waffle. The waffle your left with has a nice crispy exterior and a fluffy inside and it has for me the sign of a waffle that gives good waffle with the little bubbly outside like you can see above. More syrup pores which is a gross thought but if you don't think about it too hard and just eat the waffle you'll be happy about them.

The even better news is that even if you don't have the hard cider you could easily use a nice light beer or if you're doing the no drinking for january just for funsies you can do any club soda or seltzer water, godspeed.

Hard Cider Waffles
Makes 4-6, depending on your waffle maker I had this one for a while, just got this one at costco for a really good deal (like $30 really good, not $80)

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons white granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup neutral oil, I used vegetable
  • 1 large egg
  • 12oz hard apple cider, light beer, or just club soda


  1. Turn on your waffle maker to get it preheating, line a baking sheet with a cooling rack and pop it in a 200*F oven.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, corn starch, baking powder, and salt until it's all evenly combined.
  3. In a large measuring cup measure out the oil, beat in the egg with a fork, then add whatever fizzy business you want and beat until it's all combined.
  4. Add this to the dry ingredients and whisk together just enough to combine the batter and have the foam subside. Don't worry about the batter being perfectly smooth.
  5. Cooking the waffles according to the manufacturer's instructions for your waffle maker and transfer them to the cooling rack lined baking sheet in the over to stay warm and crispy until they're all cooked and ready to serve.
