Cinnamon Bun Waffles
Breakfast just got a lot tastier with these cinnamon bun waffles. If a cinnamon bun and a waffle had a baby, this cinnamon bun waffle recipe would be it. These homemade waffles are perfectly fluffy in the center, with the tiniest touch or crisp on the outside. Combined with the vanilla and cinnamon, and these breakfast waffles are dangerously good. They are so good that you might need to make two batches because you ate the first one by mistake.
About this waffle recipe
Honestly, I always considered myself a pancake person until now. These cinnamon bun waffles are exactly what you need during your next brunch. What’s great, is that they only take 30 minutes to make. I know homemade waffles sound complex, but trust me they’re so easy and worth it. Your friends and family will be blown away by how delicious these waffles are.
Serve these waffles with a homemade cinnamon vanilla glaze. However, maple syrup, butter, berries or whipped cream would work well too. This waffle recipe makes five waffles which is perfect for two to three hungry people.
When prepping the batter simply combine all of the ingredients except the egg white. You’ll want to beat the egg white in a separate bowl until it is foamy and fluffy. Then, you’ll gently fold the beaten egg white into the rest of the batter. Be sure to spray your waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray before adding the batter. Cook for 2-2.5 minutes before removing the waffle from the iron. You can also spray your ladle with cooking spray to help prevent the batter from sticking to the ladle.
Store any leftover waffles covered in the refrigerator for one to two days. Reheat in the microwave until heated through. You can also store any leftover waffles in the freezer. Make sure the waffles are fully cooled, then add them to a freezer safe, Ziplock bag. Place a sheet of parchment paper between each waffle to prevent them from sticking together. Thaw in the refrigerator and enjoy. Looking for more brunch recipe ideas? Try my one bowl banana oat pancakes. They’re easy to make and delicious.

These waffles are amazing!! I was able to whip these up quickly for breakfast. All of the ingredients I had already which was a major bonus. Highly recommend these waffles, they are delicious & easy to make !!
These waffles are A-mazing! I mean… cinnamon roll meets waffle goodness! A huge hit with my family…even my husband. (He usually prefers savory over sweet! ) I double the cinnamon glaze and we skip the syrup. All of the ingredients I have on hand on the regular. This one is definitely a keeper!
I was wondering if subbing the sour cream for yogurt would still result in a similar texture?
I’ve never tried it. If you decide to try it, I would perhaps use Greek yogurt since it is a bit more thick.
Hands down our family of 7’s favorite waffles! Doubled the batch after the first try and saved some for the freezer! So glad we found this recipe! We did do one change which was subbing the sour cream for plain Greek yogurt that’s nice and thick as we don’t usually keep much sour cream on hand and it works great!
Light, fluffy and absolutely delicious!
Best waffles I’ve ever eaten!! Beyond a doubt!
