  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water, cold

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Step 1

    In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt.

What others are saying about this recipe

    These are a solid 4 stars for my family. I made as directed including the cinnamon syrup. I have a smaller waffle iron, so I ended up with 10 waffles. The waffles themselves were fluffy and cooked completely in 6 minutes. The apple butter and cinnamon flavor was subtle and paired nicely with the syrup. However, eaten plain, you could taste the baking powder. So in the future I would both decrease the baking powder and increase the cinnamon. The syrup while delicious on the waffles, taste like what it is: brown sugar and cinnamon. If you want a more complex flavor, I’d go for maple syrup and increase the amount of cinnamon in the actual waffle.
