How to make Cinnamon Belgian Waffles
Belgian waffles are a delicious breakfast staple that originated in Belgium. These waffles are larger and fluffier than traditional waffles and are typically made with yeast to create a light, airy texture. Cinnamon Belgian Waffles are a variation of this classic breakfast treat, adding a warm and cozy cinnamon flavor to the mix.
To make cinnamon Belgian waffles, you will need a Belgian waffle iron, which has deeper pockets than a standard waffle iron to hold the batter. The batter itself is made with flour, eggs, sugar, milk, and butter, and is flavored with cinnamon for a warm and inviting taste.
Prep.: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Servings: 3 servings

Belgian cinnamon waffles can be a healthy breakfast option if made with the right ingredients. Choose whole-grain flour and add fresh fruit, such as berries or sliced bananas. This way you can increase the fiber and nutrient content of the dish. Whole-grain flour is associated with a lower risk of heart disease and diabetes. In addition, berries and bananas are excellent sources of vitamins and minerals such as potassium, vitamin C, and vitamin K.
Tips for Making Cinnamon Belgian Waffles
Making perfect cinnamon Belgian waffles takes a little bit of practice, but with a few tips and tricks, you can easily master the technique.
- Make sure your waffle iron is hot before adding the batter. This will help ensure that your waffles cook evenly and have a crispy exterior.
- Use room temperature ingredients. When the ingredients are at room temperature, they will mix together more easily and create a smoother batter.
- Don’t overmix the batter. Overmixing can lead to tough, dense waffles. Mix the batter until it is just combined, with a few lumps remaining.
- Grease your waffle iron well with cooking spray or butter to prevent sticking.
- Add a little extra cinnamon to the batter for an even stronger cinnamon flavor.
