Brown Sugar Cinnamon Waffles

Pin It Now!

and bacon.

 

I so wanted to crumble the bacon and put it in the waffles.. but I didn’t. I am not a breakfast person. I like breakfast being made for me, I dislike making it. It seems like a whole lot of work that goes into a meal that needs to be eaten right away to enjoy it. And it leaves entirely too much dishes too early in the day for me.

Regardless, I made waffles… from scratch and I am damn well proud of it. No .. they aren’t fancy…but that is why I love them. Simple easy and delish for a meal that I don’t like to prepare but I love to eat. Also pair that with the fact that I just acquired a waffle maker to add a little excitement to my non love for making breakfast.

I adapted the Classic Waffle from Allrecipes to suit my taste. I love buttermilk and cinnamon and brown sugar. Simple.

 

Waffles

 

Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

4 teaspoons baking powder

2 tablespoons white sugar

2 tablespoons brown sugar

3/4 teaspoon cinnamon

2 eggs

1 1/2 cups buttermilk

1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

Directions:

In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon white sugar and brown sugar; set aside.

Preheat waffle iron to desired temperature….I like between 3 and 4 on my Cuisinart Waffle Maker.

In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Stir in the milk, butter and vanilla.

Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture; beat until blended.

Ladle the batter into a preheated waffle iron.

Cook the waffles until golden and crisp.

TIP:  Place waffles in warm oven directly on oven rack to keep them from getting soggy before serving.

 

Oh.. and bacon.. I usually fry my bacon in a cast iron pan… but sometimes I don’t feel like doing the extra. So I decided to use this oven method by Kittencal to make the bacon. I now love it and not sure if I will ever fry bacon again. Okay.. that is a little extreme.. I love fried bacon.. I prefer this oven method to be used if I am going to crumble the bacon in a recipe…such as was planned for this waffles.

It didn’t bother me that my bacon was on the side. Not one bit…

And it certainly didn’t bother my daughter.. who prefers to have fruit and syrup in every bite…
