Bready or Not Classic: Churro Waffles

Posted by on Apr 24, 2020 in Blog, Bready or Not, breakfast | Comments Off on Bready or Not Classic: Churro Waffles

I prepared two classic recipes to repost while I was on vacation this summer. That isn’t happening now. Therefore, I’m sharing them earlier with the hope that my fellow #stressbakers can enjoy them. Eat well and stay safe out there!

Churro Waffles. For real.

Churro Waffles

This reprinted Holy Taco Church recipe produces waffles that are sweet, fluffy, decadent, and not the slightest bit healthy. CHURRO WAFFLES, people. These are hardcore churro.

Churro Waffles

This recipe is amazingly easy. As typed up below, it makes three big waffles in your waffle iron. Double or triple to feed a crowd or stash extras to freeze. You won’t need extra pats of butter on top, and you’ll probably need just a minimal amount of maple syrup, dulce de leche, or chocolate sauce. Heck, even dip these in something like Nutella.

Churro Waffles

Be crazy. Be churro-y. Dip your whole day in cinnamon and sugar.

Bready or Not: Churro Waffles

These hardcore churro waffles are fluffy, decadent, and coated with butter, cinnamon, and sugar. You likely won't need to add much (or any) extra butter or maple syrup. You also might need to wear sweatpants today. Recipe makes 3 large waffles, so double or triple the recipe to feed a group!

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 Tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 shakes cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk or almond milk
  • 3 Tb unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 Tb cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup melted butter


  • In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder, sugar, and cinnamon. Melt the 3 tablespoons of butter so they can cool a few minutes. Preheat waffle iron.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the egg with the milk, melted butter and vanilla extract. Pour the milk mix into the dry ingredients until just combined.
  • Apply non-stick spray to the waffle maker. Use a 1/2 cup to add batter to the iron and close the lid. While the waffle cooks, melt the butter for the topping and in a separate bowl combine the cinnamon and sugar.
  • Remove the waffle from the iron. Brush butter all over a side, then sift or spoon the cinnamon and sugar over it. Flip over waffle and repeat. Add more batter to the waffle iron and repeat the process.
