Weekend mornings here are usually a very relaxed time. Because the weekdays are so rushed with BeeBop heading off to work, our usual breakfast is a simple bowl of cereal or an English muffin.
On the weekends, we do like to take a little more time and ease into our day in a more leisurely way. It’s also a great time to experiment with breakfast and brunch ideas.
Last weekend, I decided I’d make waffles for a change. I took a fairly standard buttermilk waffle and upped the flavor a bit with some cinnamon, brown sugar, and vanilla in the batter and came up with these Cinnamon Brown Sugar Waffles.
Of course, a buttermilk waffle on its own is delicious, but that bit of something extra really made these outstanding! I served them with syrup, butter, and fresh blueberries, but they’d also be great topped with vanilla yogurt and fresh peach slices.
A little bacon on the side and a cup of sweet creamy coffee made our breakfast complete!
Hope you enjoy these!
How to Make Cinnamon Brown Sugar Waffles:
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk until just combined. Whisk in the melted butter.
Heat the waffle maker according to manufacturer’s instructions.
Lightly coat the waffle maker with butter and add an appropriate amount of waffle batter for your cooker. Cook according to your manufacturer’s instructions.
Serve warm with additional butter, blueberries (if desired), and syrup.
Note: the cinnamon in this batter will yield a slightly darker waffle than you may be accustomed to.
