Snickerdoodle Waffles

Snickerdoodle wafflesWaffles are kind of a weekend-at-grandma’s food to me. Growing up when we would spend the weekend at our grandmother’s house (in a tiny town named Buffalo, MO). She would more often than not help us make waffles on Saturday morning for breakfast. To this day they were the best waffles I’ve ever had. Although that’s probably because at this point in my life those waffles are surrounded by memory haze/nostalgia.

Nostalgia makes everything taste better. Also, you can never live up to a nostalgic recipe no matter how hard you try. You’ve just gotta make new memories and cherish past experiences.Snickerdoodle waffles Anyway, waffles. These are not as good as my grandma’s. No waffles ever will be. But these do taste like snickerdoodle cookies. (!!!!!!!) So, they at least have that going for them.Waffle making suppliesSnickerdoodle Waffles, makes 6-8 (depending on your waffle iron size).

1 2/3 cup flour
1 tablespoon baking powder (yes, a tablespoon. these are fluffy!)
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
1/2 cup melted, then cooled butter
1 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup sugar + 1 tablespoon cinnamon for the topping

Combine the dry ingredients (the first four listed above). Whisk to combine.Waffle batterPour in the eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Stir to combine. Then pour in the cooled butter (if the butter is still too hot it may begin to cook the eggs, creating weird curdled looking bits in your batter). Stir until nearly no lumps remain.

Heat up your waffle iron and use according to the manufacturer’s directions. I cooked about 1/3 cup of the batter at a time. While the first one cooks combine the sugar and cinnamon on a shallow plate. Dip the hot waffle in the mixture, coating both sides.Best snickerdoodle wafflesThese are quite sweet (with added sugar) so you may only need a little butter and fresh fruit for serving. But if you just gotta pour on the maple syrup, well, I won’t stop you. Enjoy! xo. Emma

  • I definitely was feeling the waffle bug this weekend too. It had been SO long since I’d had them. I’m usually up for making pancakes, and in my mind I think waffles are so much more labor-intensive. I guess that shows how lazy I am because the only labor in making them is pulling my iron out, and cleaning it when it’s done 😉 I’m glad I made a few batches (some for the freezer!) and it felt wonderful to have the nostalgic food I missed.
    Cinnamon and sugar will have to be my next topping. These look beautiful!

  • I’m such a sweet tooth and I can’t resist trying to make this!
    Thank you for sharing and congrats on making this blog so good!

  • My favorite cookies combined with waffles? Thank you for going there.

    These tastes are unrelated, but your reference to your grandma made me think of a small town bistro where they make Tobasco pickles. Could u experiment w that and post a recipe? 😉

    (When I had pregnancy brain I accidentally called them tobacco pickles to a very conservative old man).

  • No waffles without cardamom! That’s the secret ingredient in every Norwegian waffle recipie, and we are known to make the best waffles in the world 😉

  • Yum! What a fun recipe and great flavor combination! I’m all about a nice sweet and fluffy waffle! 🙂

  • These will be great just as they are. No need for syrup. Maybe a tiny bit of cookie butter on top if you’re feeling crazy and need the extra sweetness and crunch. :]

  • Would be a lovely Valentine’s Day breakfast! I have a waffle maker but not that awesome heart shaped one : /

    As always…THANKS FOR SHARING!

  • That’s so wonderful you have such special memories of your grandmother! My grandmother lives in Jamaica and I’m going to see her soon. I hope to create so more good memories while I’m there. These waffles look delicious. I think they would make a perfect Valentine’s Day breakfast!

  • Oh man, snickerdoodles are the BEST. straight out of the oven, soft and warm. can’t wait to try this recipe!

  • I never wanted to buy a waffle iron because… well, I was afraid of myself not being able to control my constat hunger for waffles. Until this moment I’ve managed to live without it but now I don’t know if I can do it any more! Um… Yum!
