Churro Waffles are brushed with melted butter, coated in cinnamon sugar and drizzled with caramel sauce for an amazing treat any time of day.
I’m so happy to be contributing here at Tastes of Lizzy T! I’m Jill and I’ve got over 500 family-friendly recipes so far over at my own blog Foodtastic Mom. I grew up near where Julie and her family live but now I call Cincinnati, Ohio home. My husband and I have two kids (a 12 year old son and 9 year old daughter) who keep us busy with swim team, piano lessons, Boy Scouts and Brownies.
The kitchen is truly my happy place. I have a lot of favorite recipes and one of them is this recipe for The Best Waffles. So to introduce myself to the readers at Tastes of Lizzy T I decided to remake those waffles into churro waffles.
Who loves churros? They’re a fun treat in the summer, probably most often associated with trips to the county fair or Disney World. It’s hard to resist fried dough coated in cinnamon and sugar. And sometimes they’re drizzled with chocolate or caramel sauce, YUM!
Instead of heating up a pot of oil and frying dough I decided to take the churro flavors and apply them to homemade waffles. You’ll be hard-pressed whether to make these for breakfast or dessert. That’s a terrific problem to have in my opinion.
A waffle hot off the iron mimics the light and airy churro dough and is ready to absorb the coating of melted butter and delicious cinnamon sugar mixture. The caramel sauce and fresh raspberries are an added bonus and make these churro waffles worthy of any occasion. The recipe makes four waffles but I’ll be honest it was hard to stop myself after eating just one. So consider yourself warned: these churro waffles are dangerously delicious!
