Ingredients List

  • 4 Publix Buttermilk Waffles

  • 1/4 cup melted butter

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • Maple syrup or whipped cream, for serving (optional)

Step by Step Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 360°F (182°C) for about 3 minutes to prepare for cooking.

  2. Prepare Cinnamon Sugar Mixture: In a shallow dish, combine the granulated sugar and ground cinnamon. Mix well to blend.

  3. Coat the Waffles: Brush each buttermilk waffle with melted butter, ensuring both sides are lightly coated. Dredge the buttered waffles in the cinnamon sugar mixture, making sure they are evenly covered.

  4. Cook: Place the coated waffles in the air fryer basket in a single layer, ensuring they don't overlap. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to cook them in batches. Air fry for 4-5 minutes, or until the waffles are crispy and the cinnamon sugar has caramelized slightly.

  5. Serve: Immediately serve the crispy cinnamon sugar buttermilk waffles with a drizzle of maple syrup or a dollop of whipped cream for added sweetness.
