Is it just me or are waffles the most satisfying meal to have for breakfast? I mean, what’s more comforting than sinking your teeth into a golden, crispy waffle and then hitting that soft, fluffy center? It brings warmth and joy to your morning, making it the perfect way to start your day.
Now, have I made your mouth water yet? Yes? No? Well, if I haven’t yet, then I certainly will when you hear about Churro Waffles. Yeah, that’s right. The lovely Mexican dessert that is insanely popular for its exquisite cinnamon taste, is now combined with waffles!
I have to say, this was one of the best recipes to ever be invented! Not only was it fun to make, it tasted amazing and added a new twist to the traditional Mexican churro! So to get started, I will be sharing with you where I got this recipe from, as well as the three different ways that you can indulge this!
The process of making the waffles was extremely easy to follow and is even great for beginners! What made this waffle have more flavour would definitely be the cinnamon in the batter itself. I also enjoyed drowning the waffle in the cinnamon sugar (churro topping) almost as much as I enjoyed eating it! Oh, the joy of licking the sugar off your fingers was the cherry on top!
The recipe below was originally taken from The Big Oven.
1 teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoons of white sugar
4 teaspoons of baking powder
2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 ½ cups of warm milk
1/3 cup of melted butter
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
3 shakes of ground cinnamon (Or more if you wish!)
1 cup of sugar
½ cup of cinnamon (more or less, depending on how much you love cinnamon!)
½ cup of melted butter
Mix together dry ingredients in a large bowl and set aside (flour, salt, baking powder and sugar). Combine churro topping in a different bowl and set aside.
Preheat waffle iron.
Next, beat the eggs into a separate bowl, then stir the milk, butter and vanilla in. Pour this mixture into the flour mix and stir in the three shakes of cinnamon. Beat until blended.
Spray waffle iron generously with nonstick cooking spray. Pour batter into the waffle iron and cook until it is golden and crisp. Once cooked, use a brush to brush on the melted butter on each side of the waffle (or pour it onto the waffle) and dip each side into the churro topping. Serve immediately. (Serving size of 4 waffles)
Ways to Serve:
Now time to be creative and let your imagination run wild with different ways to enjoy Churro Waffles! The first way I tried was eating the churro waffles on its own with nothing added to it, and I personally think that this is the best way to eat it! However if you want something to accommodate your sweet tooth, then enjoy it with maple syrup! Lastly, I made blueberry coulis and poured it all over the waffles to enjoy it in a more sweet fruity way. (Recipe for coulis can be found below).
I think it’s safe to say that no matter which way you decide to each the churro waffles, it will still taste heavenly! Although, to give you guys my recommendation on the order of which tasted the best I’ll rate that eating churro waffles by itself takes first place! In second place would be eating it with the blueberry coulis, and lastly, in third place would be with maple syrup!
Hope you enjoyed this recipe as much as I did! Feel free to comment, because I would love to hear which way you enjoyed eating it the most!
Blueberry Coulis Recipe:
- 1 cup frozen blueberries (can also use strawberries or mixed berries)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Combine blueberries, sugar and lemon juice in a small sauce pan and over medium heat let it come to a boil. Transfer to a blender after.
Purée until it is smooth and strain. (I personally like the small chunks of the blueberry, don’t strain if you want the small chunks). Can be stored in the refrigerator for a week.
