A delicious cinnamon waffle topped with cream cheese! Tastes like a cinnamon roll in waffle form!

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!

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

  2. 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!
