Homemade Waffles

I bought a waffle iron this last year at the black Friday sales.  I'm a sucker.  To justify my purchase, I decided to try out some recipes.  This recipe from bunsinmy oven was really delicious.  You can really taste the cinnamon, and it paired well with maple syrup.
If you found yourself a victim to black Friday impulse buys, or just need to brush off the dust from the ol' waffle iron-this is a tasty recipe!
