Churro Waffles

Super Easy Churro Waffles! Soft and fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside. They taste just like a churro!

These waffles are everything you love about a churro but in waffle form. Who says your breakfast can’t taste like dessert! These Churro Waffles are light and crisp on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside.

After the waffles finish cooking I brush them with a little melted butter than sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar!

I have always been a fan of crispy waffles. To make sure the waffles were not soggy I added cornstarch to the batter to keep the waffles nice and crispy. I also like to place them in a 200 degree oven when they are done cooking to make sure they stay crispy while the rest are cooking. I also like to make sure I place my waffles in a single layer when they are finished cooking. Stacking them on top of one another when they are warm makes them loose their crispiness.

Treat yourself to a big stack of these Churro Waffles!

  • Oh, I forgot to mention in my previous comment. I have found that placing the waffles on a cookie rack in the oven keeps the waffles crisper longer. They seem to loose their crispness when in contact with a solid surface. I am looking forward to trying these churro waffles. They sound delicious.
