Recipe: Cinnamon Bun Waffles

Ask anyone who knows me, I am absolutely, completely, 100 % NOT a morning person. I do not do mornings. Usually for breakfast we have grits, oatmeal, or cream of wheat...because everyone can nuke it themselves! If you can not fix it, you are not eating it, end of story.

That being said, if I occasionally come across an easy to do morning recipe I may try it on a weekend morning. That is the extent of it lol. So, when I saw the idea for these waffles on pinterest I knew I had to try them. They are actually really good and so amazingly easy and quick, plus there is no mess or clean up really. Yep...this is one breakfast I will cook occasionally ... I do mean occasionally, let's not get carried away here!

First what you need are some refrigerator cinnamon buns. I use Pilsbury...and buy them on sale and use a coupon lol. Also... I throw away the frosting. Try not to stone me, but I am not a frosting lover and I try to sneak in some sugar free syrup... perhaps it might be in a regular bottle so the kids think they are getting the sweet stuff even... I mean, perhaps. *insert sneaky eyebrow raise here*

Then you take your handy dandy waffle iron, spray it with butter flavored cooking spray ... do not, I repeat DO NOT accidentally grab the olive oil cooking spray, it will taste horrid! Or so I have heard! Then put one cinnamon bun in each quadrant of the waffle iron, and close...be VERY careful how long though as it takes maybe 2 to 3 minutes only to cook these lil buggers :)

Then off course take em out and slather 'em with what ever sneaky mommy topping you may have! They are great with sliced strawberries, bananas, and a little berry syrup as well.

Oh right ... then watch your kids be totally amazed that you made breakfast as they gobble it up, afraid if they take too long it will disappear right before their little eyes. But on the plus side, with them so used to me not cooking breakfast, when I do, I get total goddess status! it rocks. Now I can drink my coffee in peace!

See ... that look is a look of awe in her eyes :)



  1. they look good but I don't own a waffle iron. And just why does a person who is not a morning person have one?.....lol

  2. Oh yummy I tried the brownies today and man were they good, I need to buy myself a waffle iron so I can make these too lol x

  3. Oh that looks yummy! Good for you for cooking (and I totally don't blame you about mornings. I hate them and do my level best to do virtually nothing in the morning, lol. Cereal is what they get - period! lol) :D

  4. Yum! This might be a fun quickie breakfast for the weekend! And that reminds me, I'm out of frozen waffles, need to do a waffle cooking day so I can get them back in the freezer!

  5. That looks good. I've seen several ideas for things in waffle irons but don't own one to try any

  6. OMG I want to try this! Now all I need are those Pilsbury buns and a waffle iron, rofl. Thanks for making a case of getting a waffle iron! :D


Thanks for taking the time to comment, it always makes my day!
