Preheat a waffle maker so it is ready for when you need it. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Crack the eggs into a separate bowl.
Combine the buttermilk, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla extract.
Whisk the combined ingredients together.
Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture.
Stir by hand with a large spoon just until combined.
It's okay for the batter to be lumpy.
Spray the waffle maker with cooking spray so the waffles won't stick. Pour the batter onto the waffle maker.
Close the lid and cook for 3 to 5 minutes until the waffles are golden brown and crisp on the outside.
Transfer the finished waffles to a wire rack while you cook the rest of the batter.
While the waffles are cooking, beat the powdered sugar, cream cheese, softened butter, and maple extract in a bowl with an electric hand mixer until smooth.
Add just enough milk or cream to make a pourable glaze. It shouldn't be too thin though. Transfer the icing to a ziploc bag and set aside.
Stir the brown sugar, melted butter, and cinnamon in a bowl until combined.
It will want to separate if you make this in advance, so you might need to reheat and stir again to combine just before serving.
Transfer the brown sugar glaze to a ziploc bag and snip off one corner. Drizzle the brown sugar glaze over the waffles, then drizzle with the cream cheese icing as well and serve immediately.
These waffles are perfect for weekend breakfasts or brunches. But I would happily serve them as a dessert, which is how I like waffles best!
When it comes to special breakfasts, these Cinnamon Roll Waffles will be your new favorite! I used my favorite buttermilk waffle recipe and gave them the cinnamon roll treatment by drizzling with a cinnamon brown sugar butter mixture, and then a cream cheese glaze to top it off!
