One of my favorite meals is breakfast. On most weekends, Adam and I have pancakes and bacon for brunch. Not both weekend mornings – of course! – but it’s definitely a breakfast staple around here. While we don’t mind our routine, I decided that I needed a little change. So I ended up making a batch of churro waffles.
I started with a box of cinnamon oat power cakes from Kodiak Cakes. You need this, a waffle iron (obvi!), some cinnamon, and some melted butter. Oh and you need some whipped cream as a garnish. It’s not difficult to make (even for this pretend chef over here).
So, why Kodiak Cakes? Well, when I received the opportunity to work with this amazing company, I knew that I wanted to make something wholesome and nourishing. Kodiak is all about using whole grains and providing us with the nutrition and energy that we need to take on the day.
Adam and I love ensuring that we have that energy to take on our adventures. We love running around the theme parks, going on hikes, or exploring new places around Orlando. This churro waffles recipe is super delicious and it’s the perfect fuel for anything we do. Pairing it with bacon: even better.
As usual, Adam has to give his thoughts on the recipe. I mean, would it be one of my signature attempts to cook if he didn’t? I don’t know about you but, since I’m not the stellar chef Adam wishes I was, he can be hesitant to try new recipes. I was lucky enough to have found something that he wasn’t too afraid to try and, according to the man himself, this recipe was one of my better ones.
In fact, he said that the churro waffles were “pretty good” and that he’d totally eat them again with one caveat: I make bacon. Yeah, so I didn’t end up making bacon this time. Why? I was worried about using the waffle maker – I hadn’t until this fateful day.
To be honest, I did have some waffles fall apart during this waffle iron experience. One thing I learned? The waffle iron is nothing like our griddle. I have to spray the waffle iron before each use. If you do (and you don’t overflow the waffle iron (like I did the very first time), you’re guaranteed some pretty waffles that won’t come out in pieces.
I want to thank Kodiak Cakes for sponsoring this post.
