This Churro Waffles Recipe is a delicious breakfast idea that adults and kids alike will love!
Until recently we were using the boxed stuff. I’d like to stay because we didn’t know any better, but really it’s because we’re lazy and the homemade variety seemed like way too much work. We liked our weekly waffle tradition but weren’t in love with the waffles.
So I went to work concocting a waffle recipe that’s light and fluffy and can be made ahead of time, just like the boxed stuff, so we can enjoy homemade waffles whenever we want!
One weekend when we realized we were out of syrup, we took to the pantry to find something we could use to still have our Saturday breakfast. I figured since cinnamon and sugar go so well on toast and well, on churros, that adding it to waffles would be a natural transition!
Just like…churros. And so, this churro waffles recipe was born!
It’s perfection and there’s no need for syrup. Although if you’re a sugar fiend or a child you still might grab the bottle. Otherwise, churro waffles might just be the perfect sweet, dessert-like breakfast food.
- 2 eggs
- 5 T. white sugar
- 1 T. vanilla extract
- 1/2 c. butter melted
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2.5 c. flour
- 2 cups milk room temperature
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 5 T sugar
- 2 T cinnamon
In a large bowl, mix together eggs, sugar, vanilla extract, butter, salt, flour, milk, baking powder, and cinnamon until well combined.
- Allow to sit 10 minutes.
- Lightly coat waffle iron with cooking spray and spoon approximately 3/4 c. to 1 c. batter onto waffle iron for each waffle.
- While waffle is cooking, combine cinnamon and sugar for the churro topping together on a plate.
Once waffle is done, coat each side with melted butter or butter spray and then roll in churro topping.
- Breakfast is ready! If this isn't enough sugar for you, you can also serve this with syrup.
My girls just loved these waffles! My oldest daughter now requests these several times a week and never even has to use syrup. I think my youngest is convinced she’s getting dessert instead of breakfast on mornings that I make this recipe and is more than happy to finish her entire breakfast! And as delicious as these are, my husband and I don’t complain when we’re eating churro waffles for the second or even third time in a week.
