Guys, I could not think of a better Friday post.

Churro Waffles | @hbharvest

Yes, we are doing churro waffles today, and yes they can double as breakfast, dessert…and apparently in my house, lunch as well.

Watch the how-to video here:

If you could see my face right now you’d see me with a BIG smile, that is for two reasons.

Reason one are these churro waffles, they are too good, like addictingly good. And easy, super easy… so obviously I could not be more excited to share them with.


Reason two would be because of you guys, and all of your incredibly amazing and kind comments from Wednesday’s post. Like WOW. I have not even finished reading through them all yet, but I am just in awe and so grateful to each and every one of you who took the time to comment. I will definitely be using your suggestions.

THANK YOU! Reading through these comments has made the last two days extra special. You guys are the best! To celebrate we are making churro waffles!

So I don’t really know where to begin with these here waffles.

It all started with a conversation with one of my bestest go-to recipe peeps…aka cousin Abby out in San Diego who gives me all the details on all the best Mexican food. She was telling me all about the incredible churros she ate over the weekend and somehow I decided that I need to make churro waffles. I guess since I’ve already made churros, churros waffles were my next step, and umm, I am going to go ahead and say that churro waffles are actually better than churros.

With churro waffles, you can add things like butter and maple syrup, and you guys they’re just SOOOO GOOOD.

You can go crazy and add toppings like ice cream, chocolate sauce and dulce de leche… or just keep it simple with butter, whipped cream and syrup… my personal favorite.

Take a WARM churro waffle, add a generous pat of butter, a spoonful of homemade whipped cream and a light drizzle of pure maple. It’s the best – THE BEST.

I mean, the over the top combos are great too, but I can’t lie, sometimes they can get a little too sweet for me, and I just love letting the cinnamon and butter flavors really shine here. But whatever route you choose, these churro waffles are going to be good.

Obviously. I mean, are you looking at these pictures? Are you hungry now???

I totally am. So let’s make it a Churro Waffles Friday?!?!?

Can we do it for lunch though? Because I am so ready. 🙂

One of the things I love most about these waffles is how easy they are. You just make a buttermilk waffle batter, cook up your waffles in a waffle iron, brush the waffles with butter, coat them in cinnamon sugar and then EAT.

Honestly, they can be made and ready for eating in under thirty minutes. NO JOKE. It’s actually a dangerous recipe to have on hand, because they are THAT simple.

Also, my guess is that most of you already have all of the ingredients to make these waffles on hand right now. Flour, eggs, baking powder, buttermilk, cinnamon, sugar?!?! Yup, I sure do!

PS. if you don’t have buttermilk, use two cups of milk with one tablespoon apple cider vinegar and you’ll have homemade buttermilk!! If you don’t have vinegar, just use milk…it’s not going to be the end of the world, and promise these waffles will still be KILLER.

OKok, are we all in agreeance now? Churro waffles will be happening this weekend, right?!?

Servings: 8 waffles
Calories Per Serving: 521 kcal

Nutritional information is only an estimate. The accuracy of the nutritional information for any recipe on this site is not guaranteed.


  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 3 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter melted (or unsalted with a pinch of salt)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • whipped cream or ice cream for serving
  • warm chocolate sauce Dulce de Leche or maple syrup, for serving


  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, 6 tablespoons melted unsalted butter, vanilla and brown sugar. Add the flour, baking powder and salt and stir until just combined. It's OK if the batter is a little lumpy. Allow the batter to sit 5-10 minutes.
  • Preheat your waffle iron.
  • Cook the waffles according to your waffle iron's directions. I like to slightly undercook my waffles so they are super soft in the center.
  • In a shallow, low bowl, combine the cinnamon and sugar. Brush each warm waffle generously with the 8 tablespoons melted butter and then dip through the cinnamon sugar. Repeat with the remaining waffles.
  • Serve your waffles warm topped with butter, whipped cream and drizzled with maple syrup...or your choice of sweet toppings (chocolate sauce, Dulce de Lech, ice cream)! EAT! 🙂

    I made these yesterday, February 6, 2022, for brunch and they were amazing!! Thank you for sharing the recipie.

      1. Hey Lydia,
        Thanks for your feedback! I love to hear that this recipe was a hit, thanks for trying it out! xTieghan

  3. These sound AMAZING! Is there anyway you can change this recipe so I can make the batter the night before and keep in the fridge overnight?

    1. Hey Lou,
      I would just cover the batter and keep in the fridge. I hope you love the recipe. Please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

    Oh my goodness … this is amazing! With and without the toppings. The flavor of the waffles is outstanding. Thank you!

    5 stars for taste 4 stars for ease of cooking. The waffle recipe was really tasty with the brown sugar. I LOVED the cinnamon sugar coating on the waffles (who wouldn’t?!) but it was a tedious recipe to make. That said, i would totally make it again.

  6. Please tell me what brand of waffle iron you have! My old Philips is discontinued and every other model I’ve found are horribly THIN! Thin changes the flavour!
    Many thanks, Laura
