Cinnamon Belgian Waffles February 21, 2010

 This morning I felt like trying a new waffle recipes.  I doubled the recipe just so I would have some to freeze  (my oldest loves to have waffles or pancakes in the morning before school – freezing them makes that possible).  These were very yummy.  They tasted just like French toast!  And yes, those are farm animal waffles – I love my farm waffle maker.  I also made sausage links for the boys – they love Lil’ Sizzlers sausage and it is on sale this week for $1 a box at Reasors!  I stocked up – the cheapest I can normally find it is $1.77!

Cinnamon Belgian Waffles from


  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (I needed 2 cups since I doubled it – I used 3/4 cup wheat flour and the rest all-purpose)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon (I used 1 teaspoon)


  1. Preheat your waffle iron.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla, buttermilk and butter until well blended. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt and cinnamon; stir into the buttermilk mixture. In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites with an electric mixer until stiff. Fold into the batter.
  3. Spoon batter onto the hot waffle iron, close, and cook until golden brown. Waffles are usually done when the steam subsides.
