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!

If you love these waffles, you may also love waffle maker cinnamon rolls!

For topping:


  • Heat waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, salt and baking soda.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, milk, vegetable oil, egg yolk and vanilla.
  • In a small bowl whisk together vigorously the egg white and one tablespoon of sugar until soft white peaks form. Alternatively you can use a hand mixer for this task.
  • Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and stir with a spatula or wooden spoon until a batter forms. Gently fold in the beaten egg white and sugar until no white streaks remain.
  • Following your waffle iron's instructions and cook four waffles.
  • Brush each waffle on both sides with melted butter.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the cinnamon and sugar. Coat each waffle lightly on both sides with the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  • Drizzle each waffle with caramel sauce and serve with fresh raspberries.

Fantastic recipe! I definitely recommend Dulce de Leche, over caramel sauce for a more authentic churro flavor. We buy the Nestle brand dulce de leche in a can, put it in a reused condiment bottle, warm it up and go crazy on our waffles with it.
