Tips & Tricks for Cinnamon Waffles
You will want to preheat your waffle iron to make sure that the outside of your waffles get fully cooked. You want them to be golden brown in color. Depending on your waffle iron, the cook time will vary.
I always use a cooking spray or oil mister to grease my waffle iron. You'll want to spray before cooking your first waffle and after every few waffles as you go on. If you don't keep your waffle iron greased, your waffles may begin to stick!
Variations to Cinnamon Waffles
You can mix in fruit to create some delicious and easy fruit waffles! You can use either fresh or frozen fruit—both work great.
You can mix in about ½ cup of mini chocolate chips to add a sweet twist to your waffles. Just stir the chip-filled batter between waffles to keep the chips from sinking to the bottom of the bowl.
Change up the flavor of your waffles even more with a little apple pie spice or pumpkin spice seasoning. The great thing about making your own waffles is that you can adjust them to fit your taste!
