The Best Quarantine Snack of All Time

With life being confined to the walls of my townhouse, it’s been a bit difficult to keep myself occupied. Between doing schoolwork, painting empty bottles and cans, and firing up the ol’ Netflix app, I have one responsibility: to eat!

As the great Chef Gusteau from Disney’s Ratatouille says, “Anyone can cook!” and what I decide to cook up often to satisfy my cravings is a less-cool version of Tyler, The Creator’s cinnamon-sugar waffles, or what I like to call…

Tyler, The Creator’s Cinnamon Sugar Waffles on a Budget

If you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend heading to Youtube and searching for Tyler, The Creator on The Greatest Cooking Show Ever. He details his intense waffle-making skills and how to perfect the golden-brown sugaryness. However, for those of us who are too tired to cook up perfection, I am sharing my on-the-budget Tyler, The Creator’s waffles.

What you Need:

  • 2 Eggo Waffles
  • Cinnamon
  • Butter
  • Toaster 
  • Knife 
  • Plate

What to Do:

  1. Pop the two eggo waffles in the toaster and set to whatever crispiness setting you please. 
  2. Grab the butter and the knife.
  3. Once the waffles pop up, put them on a plate, and immediately spread the butter all over the waffles until they are nicely coated.
  4. Once you are done spreading the butter, lightly shake the cinnamon over the waffles. Make sure you coat it lightly because you will otherwise taste a cinnamon overload. However, if that’s what you like, go crazy with the cinnamon! 
  5. Eat and enjoy!!

This is a very flexible recipe that in any way, shape, or form, always seems to result in cinnamon-sugary goodness! I hope this waffle recipe brings you happiness, much like Tyler, The Creator brought me when I first discovered the YouTube video. Stay safe and stay strong, Vikings!
