Churro Waffles

As I have mentioned before, I am not much of a “hot breakfast” kind of girl . . . I just love my bowl of cold cereal each morning. However, I made these for my kids last weekend and they may have changed the way that I think about breakfast! These are so delicious and just melt in your mouth.
If you are super adventurous, you could smother them in maple syrup (just don’t call me when you have to get your cavity filled at the dentist . . . ha ha!!).
These would also make an amazing dessert! Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you have an amazing treat!
(PS If you like a more traditional churro, be sure to check out my Baked Cheater Churros! They are delicious!).

  1. As the connoisseur of waffles in my family... this one made a home run... I mean hit way out of the ballpark! Sisters, you totally killed this one. My only frustration is how soon can I make these. I'd do it tonight, except it's after midnight and cooking anything after midnight can be a bit scary!My suggestion... serve it for lunch on Saturday. Or, if that's reaching... pick a winner. I promise I'll buy all the raffle tickets!No, seriously, you guys did good on this post! :)

    Was in the mood for cinnamon waffles this morning. Tried this recipe and LOVED it!!!!!!! I let the waffle cool a bit first because when it was warm it kinda flopped all around and didn't stick together. But when it had cooled a bit, it was sturdy enough to hold the butter and cinnamon mixture. Will make again, but I have a small family so I didn't need quite so much cinnamon mixture. I will keep the mixture however in a jar and make it again this winter. Thanks for the great recipe
