I originally found this recipe in the Joy of Cooking, but I tinkered with it until I got just what I was in the mood for. Instead of egg whites, whole eggs are used for a richer waffle, and cinnamon sugar gets nice and crunchy in the waffle iron. I also use as much butter as possible for a waffle that is fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside. —Angela Grills
About 12 Waffles

In This Recipe
Mix together cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, and salt.
In a separate bowl, combine melted butter, eggs, vanilla, and milk.
Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Whisk together until just combined. The batter should be lumpy.
Ladle 1/2 cup batter into a preheated waffle iron. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture on top of batter. Close waffle iron lid.
Remove waffles when they have turned a golden brown, about two minutes. Add butter, syrup, and enjoy!
