• Churros are wonderful. They remind me of being a kid. They taste yummy. I would love to eat them all the time. So much so that I have gone so far as to make churro cupcakes, churro pancakes, but most recently and most successfully churro waffles. Waffles are the perfect way to replicate a churro because they crisp up perfectly and still remain fluffy on the inside. This is a perfect Saturday morning treat for your family. If you enjoy a good churro I guarantee that you will love this recipe.

    Your first task is to make some waffles. You can make your own, or even grab some frozen ones to get things started. Me? I prefer to make my own so I will pass that recipe on too.

    To make your waffles

    2 cups of flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    4 tablespoons baking powder
    2 tablespoons brown sugar
    2 eggs
    1 1/2 cups milk, room temperature
    1/3 cup melted butter
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 teaspoon vanilla

    Preheat your waffle iron.

    Mix the dry ingredients except for cinnamon.

    In another bowl beat the eggs until fluffy. Add in milk, butter, cinnamon, and vanilla.

    Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and beat until well blended.

    Cook in your waffle iron until golden brown and delicious.

    To turn your waffles into churro waffles melt 1/2 cup of butter in a shallow bowl.

    In a separate bowl mix 4 tablespoons of cinnamon with 3/4 cup of white sugar.

    Dip each warm waffle into the butter coating both sides. Immediately dip buttered waffles into the cinnamon sugar mixture.

    Serve immediately. No syrup necessary. Maybe just a dollop of whipped cream for good measure.
