Churro Waffles are brushed with melted butter, coated in cinnamon sugar and drizzled with caramel sauce for an amazing treat any time of day.
Who loves churros? They’re a fun treat in the summer probably most often associated with a trip to your local county fair or a vacation at Disney World. It’s so hard to resist the freshly fried dough drizzled with melted butter and coated with cinnamon sugar.
I decided to turn my favorite waffle recipe into churros that are easy to make at home. The waffle iron does the cooking, no pot of hot oil required. The waffle batter really mimics the light and airy churro dough.
I drizzled my churro waffles with caramel sauce and topped them with fresh raspberries for an extra special treat. You’ll be hard-pressed whether to make these churro waffles for breakfast of dessert. That’s a terrific problem to have in my opinion!
