Carol's Cinnamon Waffles

Carol's Cinnamon Waffles

"If you like those cinnamon waffles from the frozen food department of the grocery store, you'll love these! I developed this recipe because I don't care for syrup. Most waffles need the sweetness of syrup to make them special. These waffles are yummy just as they are; no syrup necessary! Whipped cream and fruit are a great addition if you want to go all out or just add butter and powder sugar to the top. These may brown quicker than standard waffles because of the sugar in them, so test the first one and adjust the time. I have also added 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed; you can't taste a difference. Enjoy!"

  1. Whisk flour, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl until no lumps remain.
  2. Pour milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract into the flour mixture; stir until just combined.
  3. Beat egg whites until foamy in a large glass or metal mixing bowl until soft peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form soft mounds rather than a sharp peak.
  4. Fold the the beaten egg whites into the batter.
  5. Preheat a waffle iron and coat with cooking spray.
  6. Pour batter onto waffle iron in batches and cook until crisp and golden brown, about 2 minutes; repeat until all batter is used.

I used "soured" milk in this recipe--that was the only change I made. One of the best waffle recipes I've ever used, cooking-wise, and one of the best waffle recipes we as a family ever have eat...

I added 2 mashed ripe bananas and some chopped pecans....used the whole eggs,,,butter flavored cooking spray.....husband said very delicious...I agree

By the way, when I make these waffles my family demands I make the Chocolate Cream Pudding by Mimi with the leftover egg yolks.

Great recipe. Increased cinnamon to 1 tbs instead of 2 1/2 tsp. Also, substituted 1 cup whole wheat flour for 1 cup of the all-purpose flour and added an extra 1/4 cup oil. With this substitu...

I decided to try this recipe on a whim after it was emailed this morning. I must say that these waffles just melt in your mouth. They are soft & most importantly flavorful. I've tried other wa...

For some reason they would stick in the waffle maker...I did use less oil and less sugar. I do not know if this affected the mixture. All I can say is that they tasted great, but the fact that I...

six picky kids and a lovely woman that cant stand waffles gave this more stars... cant go wrong sticking to the directions.

I liked the cinnamon flavoring, but the waffles turned out tougher and chewier than I like. The added sugar does make them burn easier, so watch for that.

I just finished making these waffles just as the recipe is written. I LOVED THEM!! A tasty twist on a waffle with the sweetness of the sugars plus the cinnamon, this is now my go to recipe for...
