Cinnamon Sugar Eggnog Waffles

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 25-30 minutes Yield: 6 waffles


For the Waffles

  • 2 1/4 cups flour

  • 1/4 cup cornstarch

  • 1 tbs baking powder

  • 2 tbs white sugar

  • 2 tbs brown sugar

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp grated nutmeg

  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves

  • Salt to taste

  • 2 1/4 cups eggnog

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/4 cup+ 2 tbs butter, melted

For the Cinnamon Sugar Topping

  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

  • 1/4 cup white or cane sugar

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp grated


  1. Preheat your waffle iron to high heat. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, both sugars, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt. Whisk to combine and set aside.

  2. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the eggnog, eggs, vanilla extract and 1/4 cup melted butter. Whisk well to fully combine.

  3. Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture and pour the eggnog mixture in. Whisk until combined, but do not overmix. Some lumps are okay.

  4. Brush the waffle iron with some of the remaining melted butter. Pour in a ladleful of waffle batter into the iron, and close. Cook until no more steam is being produced, about 6 minutes, then remove waffle from iron. Repeat until batter is done.

  5. In a small bowl, combine the white/cane sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg and stir well until fully mixed. Brush the finished waffles with the 1/4 cup remaining melted butter. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on top of each waffle. Serve immediately with whipped cream.
