I have to say that I think breakfast might be my most favorite meal of the day. I love all breakfast food and there really is nothing better than a big stack of hot pancakes or waffles, in this case, first thing in the morning.
Or a nice egg and potato scramble.
Or eggs benedict.
Unless, of course, you’re like my husband and don’t really enjoy sweet stuff or breakfast food. I mean, seriously… how is that even possible? Well, he does enjoy savory breakfast food but he doesn’t usually eat it. I think the only time I’ve seen him eat breakfast is when we’re on vacation.
Anyway, it feels like it’s been quite some time since I’ve made breakfast for this little blog I have here so I thought it was high time to post something new.
Though the last 4 breakfast posts I did were waffles… meh, I’m gunna go with it because I made some churro waffles, y’all!
Churros are a big favorite of mine. Ya know, being part Mexican and all. So I though it only fitting to try and get that same churro flavor in some sweet waffles.
They turned out fantastic.
I used a basic waffle recipe and then just added the cinnamon sugar topping while the waffles were still warm so they would soak up all the goodness. Just melt a little bit of butter and dip the waffles in the butter to coat, then toss in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
Oh so delish!
You really don’t even need any extra syrup or anything, unless you want it, but these waffles stand on their own. I actually just ate mine with a little bit of whipped cream. My girls ate theirs plain.
Really anyway you want to… so go ahead and make some this weekend. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
