A Belgian waffle recipe made with buttermilk, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Serve these Belgian waffles for breakfast and brunch topped with warm maple syrup, real whipped cream and an extra dash of cinnamon on top.
This waffle recipe is just a bit different than the traditional, as it uses brown sugar instead of the standard white granulated sugar. The result is a richer tasting waffle with a hint of cinnamon in it.
