For a simple yet tasty mix up, try these Coconut Cinnamon Waffles for your next breakfast love affair!
As I’ve mentioned many a time, I love breakfast. Like in a serious way. Like I-think-it’s-perfectly-acceptable-to-eat-breakfast-at-any-time-and-any-day-of-the-week kind of way. Oh yeah. Breakfast.
And like I said, I’m kinda on a waffle kick lately. Waffle Sunday was a popular event growing up. Every week without fail. Sometimes simple and sometimes with the whole spread of toppings. There were a lot of us, so we had a huge ole’ bowl of batter and two waffle irons going as fast as they could to keep up with demand.
The other times that we had waffles – Easter and Christmas. Always gotta have a hearty breakfast or brunch spread on these occasions.
And then there was college. My brother lived close by, and somehow it seems that every time that I went to visit it was either rice (his wife is from Vietnam) or waffles. Except my genius brother (who has a knack for making good food better) made a couple little modifications: coconut milk and cinnamon. To me these flavors are a bit inspired by the Asian cuisine that my brother’s family had daily (think curry much?). Well, whatever it was, it definitely was one thing. Delish.
I had to recreate this recipe because it really is just too easy and nice to switch up the routine a little.
With my family’s recent temp move to C’ville, I had a chance to visit my bro a few weeks ago. I hadn’t seen him for over 7 years! And, of course, we caught up on life a little. And talked food. And waffles. These waffles. And I coveted his way nicer waffle iron. It was great.
And even more exciting is another little waffle tip that he gave me that I’m dying to try……but we’ll leave that one for another day. (wink)
