These tall & fluffy Cinnamon Nutmeg Waffles are my current obsession. Let the warm, rich smell of cinnamon & nutmeg grace your kitchen and then your taste buds. Heck yes.

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. :)

    Amanda, These look great and I love fresh nutmeg. I do want all my crannies filled with butter and
    a small amount of maple syrup. Thanks for the recipe.

    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!

    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 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).

    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!
