Calling all Mexican food fans for a 'Churro' Breakfast!!

Cinnamon Sugar Churro Waffles

This weekend, I'm giving you a delicious reason to dig your waffle iron out of the cupboard, with my eggless, crispy, golden Waffles slathered in Cinnamon Sugar! 

Oh - and guess what? These waffles will be the best tasting street fair churros you ever had!!!

Feeling nostalgic? Me too!!!

Street Fair is THE place where I first tasted Churro and I fell in love with it, at first bite! 

Oh boy! I must tell you, when I ate churro first time, I did not realize a 1/2 foot long fried piece of dough will disappear, from my cinnamon-sugar slathered paper napkin, in seconds! On top of that, I'll be still hungry for one more!! Seriously, I finished churro, and were eagerly looking for NEXT Churro shop. Can you believe this?

I clearly remember, we were newbies to street fair that day and Vishal was carrying very less paper money. He could see in my eyes, the desire of ONE more churro that he specially took some money from ATM and bought me one more. 

We don't get to visit a street fair that often... So, I came home and tried to find a place where I can get churro. I was overjoyed to know that even Costco sells churro in their mini cafeteria. How didn't I notice it before?!!

I'm sure you thinking, why a savoury-food-addict girl is aaaaa-all for sweet-cravings today?! Well, if you have tasted churro, you know, why! If not, I have to tell you that even after being coated in cinnamon sugar, churros are not very sweet. These have just enough amount of salt to make'em sweet and savory...... Perfect for a not-so-crazy-for-sweets person, like me.

Today, my love for churro made it's way to Waffle Iron!!

Toppings!? I like'em as-is, but you can add as many as you want! These churro waffles are ready to with-stand any Waffle Toppings you want to use!

A few thoughts on:

Why should you make Churro Waffles, for breakfast, tomorrow:

1. Quick and Easy Breakfast: Churro waffles will be ready, from scratch, in just 20 minutes!!
2. Healthier: These waffles are eggless, good for all my friends who can't eat eggs. And if you are churro fan, then these churros are not fried!! win-win!
3. 5-Ingredient Breakfast: You just need just 5 base ingredients to make a batch of churro waffles! Toppings are optional!
4. And taste? I'm telling you, you will come back to 'thank me' for introducing you to this delicious-ness! (at your service, no thanks necessary friends :) )
5. Last but not the least, homemade is the BEST!

Just 20 minutes for a Crispy Churro Waffles Breakfast for 2 | chefdehome.com

My drooling love for Churros triggered just when I cut opened one of the waffle... in attempt to take few more clicks.

You know, how brain works?! it takes time for signals to reach from brain to your body parts. I saw a clear example of that when my mouth started working (closer to brain, of course) before I could get away from the plate of churro waffles.

In no time, I devoured almost one and a half of it and kept thinking........ I'm supposed to take few clicks, but..... fragrance of cinnamon sugar and that aroma of cooked dough slathered in cinnamon.... In other words, street-fair "churro" nostalgia.... just forced me to eat it all.

  • Step for Recipe - Cinnamon Sugar Churro Waffles
    1. Set the waffle iron to preheat. In a heavy bottom sauce pan, add water, sugar, salt, and butter and heat, stirring once or twice, until butter has melted and sugar has dissolved. (just 1-2 minutes)
    Additional Notes
    Don't boil the water. Once butter has melted, just stir the water to dissolve sugar in warm water.

    2. Remove pan from heat. Add all of the all purpose flour. (Keep a whisk or spatula ready to combine the dough)
    Additional Notes
    I often combine the flour into water with whisk, so as to avoid lumps, and then fold dough using spatula while cooking.

    3. Return the pan to medium heat and cook the dough for 2 minutes or until dough is shiny and leaves a film of flour on the sides of pan.

    If you waffle iron can cook 4 waffles at-a-time, then you can use all the dough.

  1. Huge kiss on cheek and hug to Savita! Family loves it, quick easy and no fuss.
    Angel, I'm glad your family enjoyed churro waffles.
  2. Looks great, can i mass produce this recipe ? Thanks
    Hi Saifaddin, I often double this recipe when making waffles for larger group.. So, I don't see a reason why it can't be mass produced. However, I have never tried more than double. Please note cooking time of churro dough - flour and butter, increases and needs more spacious consistent heat when cooked in larger batch. I hope it helps.
  3. I made these this morning. This batter was really thick, more like a choux. I pasted the dough onto the waffle griddle, it worked. Added cinnamon sugar while still warm and omg they are amazing! Tastes just like churros and no deep frying! You are a genius! Added whip and strawberries and BAM!
    I'm glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing your feedback. :)
  4. This was perfect. The only thing I did differently was only add 3.5 TBS of sugar to the topping. This was the perfect recipe to christen my new waffle maker!
    April, thanks! I'm glad your enjoyed waffles. I actually went ahead and checked your post and really your waffles pictures and mine are twinning :) loved it!
  5. Have been looking over several waffle iron churro recipes tonight to make tomorrow morning and this one looks great. Like not having to deal with eggs like the other recipes I've seen. Plan to try this out in the morning brushed with butter at the end then coat in cinn & sugar. Will report back!
    Alex, I'm glad you like this recipe and planning to try it. I always make churro eggless and they taste super delicious. I hope you too like'em when you try. Happy cooking!
  6. Can i make the batter a night before?
    Jennifer, you can make dough a night before. Refrigrated chuuro dough will harden due to buttter. I would bring it to room temp before making waffles. I hope it helps.
  7. Why dont you take this to the market! ill be one of the first ones buying them. I dont have a waffle iron...or not good with fllowing directions to make a recipe come to life! lol
    Olivia, thanks for your nice words. I'm glad you like Churro Waffles so much! I really wish I can take it to market :) I hope you get a Waffle Iron and make these sometime. Recipe instructions are not at all to follow. Let me know if you need any additional help.
  8. These were delicious and super easy to make! The only thing - I have a Belgian waffle iron and I preheated to setting 3 and after 5 minutes the outside were dark but the inside wasn't totally cooked so if you have this kind of machine I suggest using a lower setting and cooking for 7-8 minutes!
    Jess, I'm glad you like these waffles. I agree, Belgian Waffles do operate on high heat than regular waffle iron. Thanks for sharing this useful information.
  9. This is literally my dream come true! I'm a churro addict and this waffles is making me drool all over my keyboard!

  12. Churro waffles? Wow how awesome is that Savita! They look super delicious plus anything with cinnamon is always a winner in my book!

  15. Oh man, these are making me hungry! It's 11:00 p.m. Not breakfast yet. This looks like my kind of breakfast though. I love churros too! Great idea to make them into waffles...or chaffles. Love it!
    Thanks, Sandra for your kind words. Chaffle does sound like a good name, isn't it?
