Why You’ll Love Churro Mickey Waffles

Mickey waffles are a classic breakfast item found at Disney Parks and Disney Cruise Line. But, Disney has taken this delicious breakfast treat to the next level! Churro Mickey Waffles take the classic malted, vanilla flavor of classic Mickey waffles and coats them in butter and cinnamon/sugar.

I first had these waffles on our San Diego Disney Wonder Cruise at Cabanas breakfast buffet, and fell in love! My kids loved them even more! You can also sometimes find them at both the Disneyland Resort, at Goofy’s Kitchen, and the Walt Disney World Resort, at Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom park.

They are like Disneyland churros, but in breakfast form! Find out where to get more breakfast options or a character breakfast at Disneyland here.

Churro Mickey Waffles Ingredients

*Ingredient amounts are located in the recipe card at the end of this post.

Eggs: These will be used to bind the waffle batter together. Use large eggs, preferably at room temperature.

Flour: All-purpose flour is what we’ll be using for this recipe. If you’re looking to make gluten-free Churro Mickey Waffles, substitute the all-purpose flour with a 1:1 ratio of gluten-free baking mix.

Milk: Whole milk works best for this recipe but you can use other types of milk such as almond, oat, or soy.

Oil: Vegetable or canola oil works best for this recipe but you can also use other types of oil such as coconut, avocado, sunflower, etc.

Sugar: This adds the right amount of sweetness to your waffles. For a healthier option, try using an alternative sweetener such as honey or maple syrup.

Baking Powder: This will help the waffles rise and be fluffy.

Vanilla Extract: For added flavor, use pure vanilla extract. You can also substitute it with almond or other flavored extracts.

Salt: Salt helps to bring out the sweetness of the waffles. Use a pinch of salt for best results.

Malted Milk Powder: Malted milk powder adds a nice depth of flavor to the waffles.

Butter: For the churro coating, you’ll be using melted butter.

Cinnamon & Sugar: This is what makes Churro Mickey Waffles so special! Mix up your own blend of cinnamon and sugar or use a pre-made mixture for ease.
