Churro Waffles

Question: What’s better than waffles?

Well, not much is better than waffles, but humor me.

Answer: CHURRO WAFFLES!

You know churros: the fried dough pastry that’s often coated in cinnamon and sugar.

The cinnamon sugar coating gives a slight crunch to these tender, cinnamon-y waffles.Churro Waffles | A Nerd Cooks

I drizzled these waffles with just a bit of maple syrup.  They’d be great with a chocolate sauce, too.  I love how that bit of syrup looks, pooling on the napkin.

These churro waffles are a jazzed up version of my Classic Waffle recipe.

You’ll need (makes 4 large waffles):

For the waffles – 

  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbs baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tbs sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 egg whites, beaten until stiff

For the churro topping (you likely won’t use all of this up) –

  • 2 tbs butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1.5 tsp cinnamon

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and cinnamon together.  Set aside.

Add the milk, egg yolks, vegetable oil, and vanilla to a large measuring cup.  Whisk to combine.  Pour the liquid into the flour mixture.  Whisk until just combined.  The batter will be lumpy.

Gently fold the whipped egg whites into the batter.  The batter will still be lumpy.  This is still okay.

Pour batter into your waffle maker and cook until they reach the desired color.

While the waffles are cooking, mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl.

Immediately after removing the waffles from the waffle maker, brush one side with melted butter.  Sprinkle the buttered side liberally with the sugar-cinnamon mixture.
