Similar to my experience with pancakes, I have tried many, many waffle recipes. Most of them were fine but not quite right. This recipe from AllRecipes is the best I've tried, but the addition of a little ground cinnamon is what makes them amazing! We're cinnamon junkies and the waffles don't taste excessively cinnamon-y to us, it just adds a hint of something wonderful that puts them over the top. So if you love waffles and have been looking for the right recipe, I suggest you give this one a try!
Quick note: I do not know how this recipe will turn out with a Belgian waffle iron. My waffle iron is the old fashioned kind. It's worth a try in a Belgian waffle iron, though!
2 C flour
1/4 C sugar
4 t baking powder
1 t salt
1 t cinnamon
1/3 C butter
1 1/2 C milk
1 t vanilla extract
Preheat waffle iron. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together dry ingredients. Melt butter in a small mixing bowl in the microwave, then stir in milk, butter, and vanilla extract. Stir into dry ingredients just until combined, it's okay if there are some little lumps. Spoon batter onto greased waffle iron (the amount of course will depend on your iron, but mine takes 1 C batter) and cook to desired crispness. Keep waffles hot in an oven set to warm while you make the rest.
Yield: About 4 large waffles (enough for 4-6 servings)
