Homemade Cinnamon Waffles Recipe

Cinnamon Waffles, the perfect homemade treat when you want to indulge yourself without spending money on a ridiculously posh and equally expensive breakfast/brunch in a 5 star restaurant. All you need is a waffle maker, and you won’t really break the bank, the price range being more than affordable.

The waffle machine will end up being a very good investment in the long run, trust me on this.

Oh, also worth mentioning that the waffles are ready in under 30 minutes. Brilliant! Breakfast is ready just in time!

From sweet to savoury, simple or as fancy as one wishes, waffles are ever so popular, and not only with kids.

I remember as a child having a not-so-fancy old-fashioned waffle maker that had to be heated on the gas stove and had some pretty heavy handles.

I must say, these modern electric waffle makers are a life saver, all you have to do is switch them on, and job done.

Mum used to make a huge batch at once and sandwich the waffles together using chocolate filling. They were sheer goodness!

How do you make the best cinnamon waffles?

  • Melt the butter and allow it to cool.
  • Sift the flour, and add it to a bowl together with a pinch of salt, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla extract.
  • Beat the egg, pour in the milk and cooled butter, and mix well, then add the mixture to the bowl of flour.

You will get a smooth, sticky batter, so don’t worry about the texture.

Heat up the waffle maker, add about 2 tablepoons of batter, depending on the size of the maker, and leave to cook for about 3-4 minutes.

The waffles can be enjoyed simple, or spinkled with some sugar and more cinnamon on top.

Cinnamon is one of those spices that can always be found in my kitcken cupboard, like the never missing salt and pepper.

So, are you giving the a go? The heart shape makes them ideal if you want to surprise your loved one with a delicious batch of waffles? Breakfast in bed perhaps?

If you are a savoury person rather, how about some fabulous Cornbread Waffles with Bacon and Cheddar? They are the best you can get for a healthy and nutritious breakfast.
