These Churro Waffles are tender, sweet, and slightly crunchy on the outside!
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.
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.
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tbs baking powder
- 1 1/2 tbs sugar
- 1/4 tsp kosher 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
- 2 tbs unsalted 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.
Gently fold the whipped egg whites into the batter.
Pour batter into your waffle maker and cook according to the manufacturer's directions 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.
