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!

How to make Churro Waffles

  • Start by preheating your waffle iron. Meanwhile in a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cornstarch. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together buttermilk, oil, vanilla and egg yolks until combined.
  • In a stand mixer with the whisk attachment add egg whites and sugar and beat on medium high until soft peaks form.
  • Fold in the egg whites to the batter.
  • Cook batter in the waffle iron according to manufactures directions.
  • Meanwhile in a medium shallow bowl combine sugar and cinnamon.
  • When the waffles are done brush each of them with the melted butter.
  • Dip each waffle in the cinnamon and sugar mixture.
  • Serve immediately with syrup if desired.

Tips for the Best Waffles

  • Cornstarch: 1/4 cup of cornstarch is added to keep the waffles light and crispy.
  • Separate the egg: Adding the egg yolk to the wet ingredients and whipping the egg whites separately creates a fluffy waffle.
  • Don’t overmix: Overmixing the batter can lead to a tough dense waffle.
  • Buttermilk: Instead of regular milk I always like to add buttermilk to my waffles. It is best to use buttermilk, whole or 2% in this recipe.

How to keep the Waffles from getting soggy

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.
