French Toast Waffles

Sorry, today no baking-recipe! I'm studying for my last exam this schoolyear and it's too hot to bake. Nevertheless, I need something sweet and indulging to get me through my studying, which is why I whipped out my favorite waffles recipe: French Toast Waffles! It's a pretty ordinary waffles recipe, except from the cinnamon, but the cinnamon is the key ingredient. It really makes the waffles taste like french toast, yet has the airy and light consistency of waffles. Enjoy!


French Toast Waffles recipe: AllRecipes.com

Ingredients:
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup buttermilk
- ¼ cup butter, melted
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ tablespoon white sugar
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 egg whites
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions:
- Preheat your waffle iron and butter or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, vanilla, buttermilk and butter until well blended. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt and cinnamon; stir into the buttermilk mixture.
- In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites with an electric mixer until stiff. Fold into the batter.
- Spoon batter onto the hot waffle iron, close, and cook until golden brown. Serve hot.


The waffles-batter. Very brown because of the cinnamon.


I love eating waffles with some fresh fruit. It's a healthier replacement of maple syrup.


Alright, alright, maybe I did eat these with a little bit of maple syrup!

I would have never thought to add cinnamon to french toast batter. It sounds great.

These look so good. I remember having waffles when I was young and my step mother added pecans to the batter. That addition to this maybe very good as well... Love your Blog.... :)
