Funnel cakes are one of my favorite treats to get when we go to Disneyland. 

 

There is something about the delicious, fried goodness, topped with a variety of toppings, that makes our visit that much better.

If you are craving a funnel cake at home, you can make a classic funnel cake, like this copycat Disneyland Funnel Cake recipe, or you can make these delicious waffles.

 

These funnel cake Belgian waffles are crispy on the outside, are made with yeast, and taste just like a funnel cake without the guilt of eating something fried in oil.

 

They are the perfect waffles to make for your family on a lazy weekend morning.

Another perk, is that you make them ahead of time, generally the night before you plan to serve them, so there is less work to do in the morning!
