Churro Waffles with Chocolate Sauce

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2/3 cups canola oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • cups buttermilk
  • Churro topping - Cinnamon Sugar
  • ½ Cup of Sugar
  • ¼ Cup ground Cinnamon
  • ½ cup/50g Melted Butter
  • Chocolate Ganache (Sauce)
  • 8 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate (we like 72 percent cacao)
  • 1 cup heavy cream


  • Start by making the Waffle Batter:
  • In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.
  • In a jug, whisk together eggs, oil, buttermilk and vanilla extract.
  • Whisk to spell out W.A.F.F.L.E.S, or 7 times roughly. A few Lumps and bumps are all good. Just like pancake batter, they work themselves out while the batter rests
  • Refrigerate for 10-20 minutes and get working on your sauce and cinnamon sugar.
  • For the Chocolate Ganache
  • Heat the cream until it is about to boil, then turn it off
  • Pour over the chopped chocolate and whisk until smooth and shiny. Set aside until needed
  • To make the Churro topping
  • Melt the butter and set aside
  • Mix the cinnamon and sugar in a bowl together until well combined.
  • Pre-heat your waffle iron to medium heat. Grease with butter
  • Spoon the batter into a preheated waffle iron.
  • Cook the waffles until golden and crisp. (all waffle irons are different but roughly around 3-4 minutes)
  • TIP: Resist the urge to open the waffle iron while cooking so you don't let out all that lovely steam that will give you a chrisp, brown waffle
  • Once fully cooked immediately brush with melted butter and sprinkle over you cinnamon sugar. Turn over and do the same on the other side. Don't be shy with the cinnamon sugar, it's the best part.
  • Drizzle over the warm, rich chocolate sauce to get that full Churro experience. If you are feeling extra BOLD then finish with freshly whipped cream like I did!!

Hey Gemma!
I loved the recipe but my waffles weren’t crispy. What is it that I’m doing wrong?

Another family verified recipe!
I used both the traditional stove top waffle iron and the mini electric waffle maker. The electric waffle maker heat up more evenly but both yield equally yummy waffles. It’s your recipe who plays the magic! Thanks!

Would this work with gluten free flour mix and xanthum gum for a gluten free option. I’m adding a waffle iron to my shopping list, I hope it works! 🙂

As it was only 3 of us today I made this with a smaller recipe of 2 cups gluten free flour so only used 3 eggs, added some ginger, allspice, and nutmeg to flour mixture. I used melted butter instead of oil and used 3/4 cup coconut milk and 1 cup homemade buttermilk. Sad to say, my beautiful Belgian Waffle Maker died, so I had to make do with my smaller waffle maker. However, they still turned out soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside. I made a homemade Cinnamon/cocoa Whipped cream and a chocolate syrup. My grandson… Read more »
