Cinnamon Roll Waffles

To say these waffles were amazing would be an understatement.

These waffles could easily be one of my new top favorite breakfasts! I stumbled across the recipe from one of my favorite bloggers, RecipeGirl. She has fabulous recipes and ideas and this one is nothing short of spectacular. Everyone who ate them LOVED them, but seriously who wouldn’t?!  They are INCREDIBLE!

Cinnamon Roll Waffles

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Servings 8
Calories 529kcal



  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Cinnamon Topping

  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon

Cream Cheese Topping

  • 4 Tablespoons butter softened
  • 2 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla



  • In a large bowl bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk, oil and vanilla. Add egg mixture to the dry ingredients. Stir until moistened; batter will be slightly lumpy and thats okay.
  • Preheat a waffle iron and spray with nonstick spray. Pour batter into waffle iron, close the lid and bake until waffles are completely done (Each waffle iron is different so follow your waffle iron's instructions). Use a fork to remove finished waffles. Repeat with remaining batter until all the batter has been used.

Cinnamon Topping

  • In a medium bowl, add butter, brown sugar and cinnamon and mix until well combined. Scoop the filling into a small zip baggie and set aside.

Cream Cheese Topping

  • n a medium, microwave-safe bowl, combine butter and cream cheese and microwave for 30 to 60 seconds until it is just until melted. Stir together until smooth. Once smooth, mix in powdered sugar and vanilla extract.
  • When ready to serve, place waffle on plate, drizzle cinnamon topping and cream cheese frosting over the waffle and Serve immediately.

    These waffles look yummy! I haven't had a waffle in years!! I guess it's time to dust off my iron and put it to good use!

    Made these and fell in love! Guess what we're having for breakfast on Christmas! My kids now think mom is a gormet chef and brag about me to their freinds!

    Just made these right now w/ my boys. They are SO GOOD! Makes almost 5 round Belgian Waffles. Next time I might try softening the butter at room temp, instead of melting the butter for the Cinnamon topping so it will be a little thicker like the picture. Great flavor- definitely a keeper! Even the waffle alone tasted great! THANK YOU for this recipe!!! Jaclyn

  28. Cyndi

    I know this is terrible but I plan to use frozen waffles. The thickest I can find. If things I fix aren't almost instant--my family would never have anything a little different and special.

    If you are in the mood for cinnamon rolls and don't want to go through the bother, these are for you. My Belgian waffle maker didn't like them, though: one side didn't cook well. And we had too much of the toppings. But the fam loved them.

    This was my first pin when I joined Pinterest a couple of years ago. This past weekend I finally made these waffles. They are as advertised! Amazing. This is a real treat! Even though I couldn't make them as pretty as yours the taste was great!
