Cinnamon Nutmeg Waffles

Cinnamon Nutmeg Waffles

Tall, fluffy, buttermilk waffles… I’m talking hot & fresh, and straight from the iron: These special harvest-spiced waffles made with cinnamon, brown sugar, and freshly grated nutmeg are perfect- my current obsession. The warm, rich aroma of the cinnamon & nutmeg coming from the waffles as they bake is complete and utter heaven.

You can find whole nutmeg in the spice aisle and use any old cheese grater to freshly grate it right in your kitchen.

Just a few quick swipes on the grater will give you a bunch- there’s no slaving involved here! :)

And seeing the tiny flecks of cinnamon & nutmeg in each and every bite? Deeply satisfying. Not to mention delicious. :D

So sorry I never got a picture of the waffles topped with butter & syrup… but I’ll let you use your imagination. :)

Cinnamon Nutmeg Waffles

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
3 eggs, beaten
4 tablespoons butter, melted
2 cups buttermilk, room temperature

Preheat waffle iron according to manufacturer’s directions.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, sugars and spices. In another bowl beat together the eggs and melted butter, then add the buttermilk. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until combined. Allow to rest for 5 minutes.

Ladle the recommended amount of waffle batter onto the iron according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Close iron top and cook until the waffle is golden on both sides and is easily removed from iron.

Based on the Basic Waffle Recipe from Alton Brown.

I love how thick your waffles turned out (as well as how yummy they sound!) What kind of waffle iron do you have? After seeing this and rummaging my kitchen, I can see we don’t own a waffle iron!
Any suggestions? Thanks!

I always wondered what nutmeg was (yep, I’m a foreigner), until I saw that photo. In Sweden we call it “muskot-nöt” (nöt means nut).

Yep…these are amazing! Just made them this morning for my hubby and almost 2-year old, whose favorite breakfast is waffles, and they gobbled them up! No syrup needed for these…and it makes a ton so we’ll have leftovers all next week!

I stumbled across your blog yesterday, and I am in love with it! You are so creative and witty! Haha…

Anyway, so my friend and I made these waffles this morning, and when I say that they turned out HEAVENLY — I am not even close to exaggerating. The only thing that I did differently was to use ground nutmeg instead of freshly grated because that’s what I happened to have on hand. We topped them with all sorts of fresh fruits as well as slivered almonds. They were picture perfect! Great great recipe, and I plan on making them again! Thanks so much!
