Waffles are my favorite breakfast food. I decided that I’m going to try several different waffle recipes to find one that I like the best for Christmas morning breakfast this year – yes, I’m already planning Christmas breakfast. This recipe is for homemade cinnamon waffles.
I’m not really a huge fan of cinnamon so this recipe did not make the cut for Christmas morning breakfast but I thought I would share the recipe with you all anyways. Plus, this gave me an excuse to try out the new stand mixer I just bought! This would make a good Sunday breakfast or brunch.
If you don’t have a stand mixer because of how expensive they are fear no more because I found mine through Amazon for $40!!! It was such a steal and I absolutely love it. Here is the link if you would like to purchase one for yourself.
What you’ll need:
- Waffle Iron
- Baking Powder
- Canola Oil
You’ll need to separate the yolk from the whites. You’ll be whipping the egg whites until they form stiff white peaks. If you have a stand mixer I would recommend whipping the egg whites first. You can let that get whipped up while you continue on with the rest.
While you let the stand mixer do the work with the egg whites you’ll want to whisk the dry ingredients together and set aside. I would recommend using a sifter for this step. It helps break up any old ingredients you may be using so there aren’t any clumps.
The next step is to mix together the egg yolks, vanilla, oil, and milk. I forgot to get a picture of that step but that’s alright. Once the yolk mixture is done you’re going to combine it with the dry ingredients. Make sure everything is completely mixed together.
Now is the time to go back to your egg whites. They should look something like below. It is very important they have peaks. The egg whites are what makes the waffles airy and light.
You’ll want to gently fold in the egg white mixture. If you over mix it you’ll end up with tough, flat waffles. Once mixed you’ll drop some onto the preheated waffle iron and cook.
Voila!! You have amazingly, yummy waffles! Top with your choice of butter, syrup, powdered sugar, fruits, etc! I’m pretty sure you’re family will absolutely love this recipe.
This batch made about five waffles for me. I probably could’ve made the last waffle into two but I didn’t want a small waffle.
If you are a fan of cinnamon Eggo waffles then you will absolutely love this recipe. These waffles were fluffy and flavorful. I hope you enjoyed this recipe. Please, let me know what you thought!
