Cinnamon Roll Waffles

Kind of a long process but SOOOO tasty! I made a big batch of these for the kids to pull out and pop in the toaster on school mornings.

2 tsp yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1 TB sugar

1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder 

3 cups all purpose flour 
OR( for GF)
2 tsp xanthan gum
1 1/2 cup sweet sorghum flour
1 cup superfine brown rice flour
6 TB potato starch
3/4 cup tapioca starch
2 TB corn starch

1 cup warm milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 tsp cider vinegar

In a bowl combine yeast, warm water and 1 TB sugar. Allow to proof until nice and foamy.

While it is proofing combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl, whisking together gently.

When the yeast is proofed add milk, butter, vanilla, egg and cider vinegar. Mix well. 
Add flour ingredients 1/2 cup at a time until well incorporated. (if you are using all purpose you may need a touch more flour, you want to be able to handle it but still slightly sticky)

Gather into a ball and place in a greased bowl and allow to rest in a warm location for 30 minutes.

Prepare the filling:

2 TB butter, softened(not melted)
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 ts cinnamon

Stir together butter, sugar and cinnamon.

Heat your waffle iron

On a sheet of wax or parchment paper place the dough. 

Pat out gently until you have a 9 x 12 triangle.(You can use extra all purpose or sorghum flour for dusting to aid in this)

Spread filling to over the entire thing.

From the long side GENTLY roll up

Slice into 16(ish) rolls. Pat down gently

Place on the greased waffle iron and cook according to your iron instructions...

Serve with syrup or if you really want the sugar points mix 1/4 cup sour cream and 1/2 cup(plus or minus) powdered sugar and drizzle over the tops.

The freeze well. Cool completely, freeze in a single layer on a cookie sheet, then wrap (I do pairs) and freeze until ready to use.....pop them in the toaster just like an eggo! (just watch carefully for brown sugar drippage!)

EDIT- I have found that for reheating these they do better in the microwave, I suggest covering with a damp paper towel or putting in a glass of water on the side. In the toaster they hardened up a bit too much.
