Here’s how to make pan dulce waffles – or rather, concha waffles to be more specific! These are so yummy because they are lightly sweet and they are filled with a fluffy cream so they are moist as well.
These pan dulce waffles were made of of sheer panic – at first. See, I was accepted to create two recipes for the Cacique website, my themes were Easter and weekend brunch. The thing is, I peeked at the other bloggers/influencers on the list and wow, they were all hardcore foodies. I’m the crafty one. So I knew I had to make up for my lack of measuring skills with creativity.
First up is Easter! Thank goodness I have a love of pan dulce – Mexican pastries! That saved the day, LOL! When I told my husband I wanted to put a concha in our waffle maker, he paused, scratched his chin and replied, “Fill it with something first!”
See why we have been married 25 years? He GETS me!

How to make concha and/or pan dulce waffles
To add filling – whip together Queso Fresco and Crema Mexicana,, with a dash of sugar. It should be light and fluffy.
Slice open the concha and add a tablespoon inside. Close the concha.
Spray your waffle maker with non-stick spray and place the concha inside.
Let it warm up, or if you want, leave it longer so the edges are crispy!
Remove from the waffle maker and drizzle with crema or even a dash of syrup.
