Cinnamon Roll Waffles


We just celebrated my son’s birthday.  I have an eleven year old and that is just crazy talk!   I swear he was just born.  Now he is a handsome almost as tall as me eleven year old.   I always make a special breakfast for their birthdays.  Cause lets be honest.  It is usually cold cereal or frozen waffles.  He wanted these Cinnamon Roll Waffles.  And how can you go wrong with a cinnamon roll waffle drizzled in a cream cheese glaze?  You just can’t.

I just got one of those nice waffle makers and I couldn’t wait to try it out on these bad boys.  The waffles turned out amazing.  A crisp outside and a soft inside.  The cinnamon flavor in the waffles was excellent!   These were just like a cinnamon roll in waffle form.  And the cream cheese glaze was the perfect finishing touch!  Definitely a recipe we will make again and again!

A delicious cinnamon waffle topped with cream cheese! Tastes like a cinnamon roll in waffle form!
Serves: 4-6
  • 2 all-purpose flour
  • 1teaspoon salt
  • ½teaspoon baking soda
  • 3teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2eggs, separated
  • ⅛ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1¾ cups buttermilk
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons maple-flavored syrup
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • Cream Cheese Glaze:
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2-ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. In large bowl, stir together flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon, set aside.
  2. In small bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form and set aside. In medium bowl, beat egg yolks, buttermilk, ¼ cup melted butter, the syrup and vanilla; set aside.
  3. Make well in center of flour mixture. Add egg yolk mixture; mix just until combined. Fold in beaten egg whites.
  4. Spray waffle maker lightly with cooking spray. Spoon batter onto hot waffle maker, bake for 3-4 until steam stops and waffles are golden brown.
  5. For cream cheese glaze: Beat together butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla. I always soften it up in the microwave for about 20 seconds so it pours easily over waffles.

  1. These look so good Alyssa! Aren’t waffle makers a blast? So fun.

  2. Can these be made into pancakes? 🙂 They look so good but I don’t own a waffle maker

  3. I made these for breakfast this morning, and they are delicious! My family told me to definitely keep the recipe. Thanks so much.

  4. How much flour? I assume 2 cups but your recipe doesn’t say. Suggest proofreading before posting. Thanks.

  5. Made these this morning and they are delicious! We opted not to use the cream cheese glaze and just stick to adding maple syrup as the topping. This is a solid waffle recipe!
