Sometimes you need a pick me up or maybe just a shake up. Whatever the case ,start with these cinnamon-sugar espresso waffles.

Now when I think of recipes like these I know its going to be a good evening. Yes evening, if you’re a breakfast for dinner kind of person. These are for you. They are super easy to incorporate to you’re everyday pancake batter just substitute whatever liquid for coffee and milk and you’re golden.

These pancake are really the perfect pick me up especially on a rather dull day. I rather these aren’t recommended for kids. Use at your own discretion. If you enjoyed them as much as I did let me know!
