So Spring is here! Hooray! Other than my allergies acting a fool, I love Spring because it means we are one season closer to my favorite season, Summer! Another cool thing about Spring are all the cool foodie holidays that happen during this time. In honor of these foodie Holiday recipes, I’ve included a few recipes from a few other bloggers below.

National Waffle Day is on March 25th and I decided to represent with this Cinnabon Waffle Recipe!!! Why a Cinnabon Waffle?? Well I  love, love, love, love Cinnabons. They are my favorite mall treat. I love them so much that one time, on a road trip home from Maryland, I made my husband get off the highway because I swore I saw a Cinnabon sign. Well…there was no Cinnabon off that exit, apparently no sign, and 10 minutes added to our trip. Oooops. It was at that time that I realized I had it bad for this sweet treat.

I’ve actually made copycat Cinnabons from scratch a few times but in order to get the dough just like I like it, it takes a whole lot of mixing and rising which means a whole lotta waiting. So I needed a faster fix and decided using my waffle iron would be much better.

I tend to make this Cinnabon Waffles recipe alone or with a side of fried chicken for some good ol’ Chicken and Waffles. Great thing is if I make them for dinner, I just pack up any leftover waffle batter and enjoy waffles for breakfast too.

This recipe does take a few steps but the results are the perfect waffle for Waffle Day. Perfectly waffled waffles with a brown sugar topping and cream cheese glaze. So yum.

Notes on Cinnabon Waffles Recipe

  1. You can use almond milk or regular milk. I’ve used both with no problems.
  2. Prior to making these waffles, preheat oven to 250 degrees. Once waffles are done, place on baking sheet in preheated oven to keep waffles warm.
  3. These are so good with a nice tall glass of milk.

These Cinnabon Waffles are a great twist on the typical Cinnamon roll. Great for brunch. Great for breakfast.

Girl, as much as I'm ready for spring, my allergies are already getting on my last nerve. But Yayy to these waffles. They look perfect. I think I need to get a better waffle iron to try. The one i have makes horrible waffles lol (or that may just be me)
