We are all big breakfast fans in this house but there is one treat that really takes the cake for us.

These cinnamon roll waffles.

The sons and I love these!

The sons asked for them for breakfast every morning for 7 days in a row.

And I loved that they’re so simple, they can make them themselves- even my youngest now that he’s old enough to be around a waffle iron on his own.

So break out the waffle iron and can of cinnamon rolls and prepare to be delighted!

Ingredients

To make these, you’ll need:

  • Cinnamon rolls– Use your favorite brand of the canned kind with cream cheese icing.
  • Cooking spray – You definitely need nonstick spray so the spray doesn’t stick to your waffle maker.
  • Powdered sugar– Don’t substitute a different kind of sugar here or the texture of the glaze won’t work.
  • Milk– Any kind you have.
  • Vanilla– Use real vanilla extract the best flavor.

How to Make

This breakfast treat is the easiest one you will ever make!

To do it, just heat up the waffle maker and spray the plates of the maker liberally with nonstick spray.

Then, remove cinnamon rolls from can and set the icing aside.

Place 1 cinnamon roll in center of waffle maker and close the iron.

Let it cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until waffle is thoroughly cooked and golden brown.

Then, carefully remove the waffle and set it on a waiting plate.

Spray the waffle iron in between and repeat this process for each waffle.

Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir together reserved icing, powdered sugar, milk and vanilla until glaze is smooth.

Serve glaze over hot waffles.

Storing leftovers

Store leftovers wrapped tightly in plastic wrap in a sealable bag in the fridge.

Reheat in a warm oven until heated through.

Tips and Tricks

  • You MUST SPRAY the waffle maker in between each waffle. The sugar in the cinnamon rolls will make them more likely to stick.
  • The waffles are done when you can easily lift them out of the waffle maker and the center is cooked through.
  • If you prefer to serve them with maple syrup, you don’t need to make the glaze. Totally up to you.
  • Make it a meal by serving them with yogurt and/or fresh fruit.
  • For a real treat, use this recipe to make the classic waffles and ice cream treat.
