Cinnamon French Toast Waffles, a romantic breakfast or brunch for Valentine’s Day. Super easy to make, and ready in only 5 minutes, this little treat is a great way to say “I love you”.
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, there is red everywhere you look: teddies with “I love you” messages, red roses, heart ballons, and so on. Nothing wrong with celebrating love, it should actually be celebrated every day, and not just on this particular occasion.
But, still. If you are looking for romantic meals for the big day, why not start the day in style with a super easy, ridiculously quick to make french toast waffles. And since my waffle machine makes heart-shaped waffles, there can’t be anything more suitable for an indulgent breakfast.
Not that regular waffles are hard to make, and I’ve got quite the recipe for you if you are looking for the real deal: Cinnamon Waffles. But why not make things even simpler. And all you need is bread slices, eggs, a bit of milk, cinnamon and powder sugar if you like, and some maple syrup.
Another spectacular way of making french toast: my out-of-this-world yummy Apple Pie French Toast Roll-Ups. They can be served as a Fall treat, elthough they are great all year around.
How to make french toast waffles
Like any french toast, this recipe is super simple:
- beat the eggs with a bit of milk
- add ground cinnamon and maple syrup or sugar
- soak the bread slices well in the egg mixture
- transfer them to the waffle machine and leave to cook for about 2-3 minutes
And that’s all. If you want to serve with more maple syrup, honey or any other syrup, you might want to skip adding sugar or syrup to the egg mixture. But it’s up to you, depending how sweet you like them. I like to serve them with extra ground cinnamon sprinkled on top, after all, there is no such thing as too much cinnamon, right?
Can I make cinnamon french toast in a pan?
If yo don’t have a waffle machine, just go for an old-fashioned french toast, or egg bread, what’s called in the UK. Follow the exact same steps, add a bit of butter to a pan, and cook the bread slices on both sides until nice and golden.
Make sure you keep the heat on a low to medium, otherwise the bread will cook too quickly on the outside, while the inside might still have a bit of raw egg. Serve them with any fruit and nuts of your choice, or just plain. They are super yummy!
