Cinnamon Roll Waffles



Ok…We love breakfast around our house.  And there is nothing better than a meal that requires you to pour sugar all over the top.  Seriously, is there a better way to start the day?

Recently, we made a cake and had some extra cream cheese icing left over.  We decided to put it to good use and made some cinnamon waffles.  Toss some icing on top and you have a cinnamon roll in waffle form.  Whoo Wee!

Here is what you need:

2 eggs

2 cups flour

1 3/4 cups milk

2 TBS sugar

3 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup butter, melted

1 tsp cinnamon.

For the icing:

2 oz cream cheese

1/2 stick butter, melted

1 cup powdered sugar

milk  (Use a TBS at a time to reach desired consistency)


For the waffles:  (Sorry for the lack of pictures.  I wasn’t cooking this for the purpose of the blog, but once we tasted them….I had to share!)

Mix your waffle ingredients in a bowl until well mixed.  There will be some lumps, but that is good.  Cook waffles in your waffle iron until golden brown.


For the icing:


Mix all the ingredients on low until you get a creamy mixture.  I like mine a little runny for the waffles, just add the milk slowly.  You can always add more!


Pumpkin Glaze Cinnamon Rolls

I posted my ooey gooey cinnamon rolls a while back.  They are delicious, but I decided this year I wanted to do a little something special for the pumpkin-ey fall season.

A friend of mine recently made some scones that had a pumpkin glaze and I fell in love.  Her pumpkin glaze was to die for…..and she shared it with me.  So in the spirit of being a good friend, I am in turn sharing it with you.

Start by making a batch of these babies!


Here is what you need for the glaze:

1 TBS canned pumpkin

1 cup powdered sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp nutmeg

1/8 tsp ginger

2 TBS milk

20131106-194101.jpgDrizzle on top of cinnamon rolls.  (I glazed them with both the regular glaze and the pumpkin glaze and they were perfect!)

Oooey Gooey Cinnamon Rolls….


One of the first things I wanted to learn how to make when I started making my own bread was cinnamon rolls.  I have a serious weakness when it comes to these little rolls of sugary delight.  It took me a couple of attempts but now they have become a family favorite.  I make them at least a couple of times a month.




Here is what you will need:

1 batch of Yeast dough

1 stick of butter

1-2 cups granulated sugar




1 stick butter

2 cups powdered sugar

1 tsp. Vanilla

IMG_4851 IMG_4852Use a pizza cutter to cut dough into strips.  You can cut them as thick as you want depending on the size you want your rolls to be.

IMG_4853 IMG_4856Roll each strip and place in a greased pan.  Make sure to place the ends touching another roll so they don’t come apart as they rise.  Cover, or place in a draft free place, and let rise for 30 minutes.  Then bake for 20 minutes on 350.
