Churro Waffles


These Churro Waffles were inspired by a recent trip to visit a friend who lives in Mexico. In my friend’s home town, they party all night and it is traditional to get a snack of churros for the walk home after a night of dancing. Churros are a deep fried dough snack which are dusted with sugar and dipped into hot chocolate. I wanted to recreate the experience so decided to try using my waffle maker rather than deep frying dough in oil. 

Start by mixing the dry and wet waffle ingredients together to make waffle batter. Cook the waffle batter in a waffle iron until they reach your desired doneness – I love my crispy and golden. Transfer the cooked waffles to a warm oven until you are ready to serve. To serve, dust the waffles all over with cinnamon sugar and drizzle with chocolate sauce. Serve with optional whipped cream, hot fudge sauce or caramel sauce.

To make Churro Waffles, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Churro Waffles


Mix dry ingredients together


Mix 2¼ cups of all-purpose flour, 4 teaspoons of baking powder, ¾ teaspoon of salt and 1½ tablespoons of sugar in a large mixing bowl.


Mix wet ingredients


In a separate bowl, whisk 2 beaten eggs with 2¼ cups of milk and ¾ cup of melted butter.


Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients


Pour the wet mixture into the flour mixture and fold until the dry ingredients are just moistened.


Heat a waffle iron


Preheat a waffle iron.




Pour the batter onto the hot waffle iron and cook the waffles until they reach your desired doneness. Transfer them to a 250 °F oven to keep warm until serving.


Make cinnamon sugar


Mix 1 tablespoon of cinnamon with ½ a cup of granulated sugar together in a bowl.


Dust waffles with cinnamon sugar


Brush the cooked waffles on both sides with ¼ cup of melted butter. Dust all over with cinnamon sugar.


Melt chocolate


Melt 1 cup of chocolate chips in a microwave in 30-second increments until completely melted.



Serve immediately drizzled with melted chocolate and with whipped cream, caramel sauce or hot fudge sauce on the side.

Last time I made the chicken waffle bites, this time I decided to go for something sweet instead and I like the idea of this one, both looks and sounds good.

Churro mix, that's an amazing idea, if you think about it you can try lots of other recipes in the hot iron, now that I've tasted this I will for sure get more creative!!

Ice cream with chocolate syrup at the top and you got yourself perfection.

I just dropped some yogurt on top with some blueberries and a strawberry, needless to says it was a piece of art.
