I grew up with homemade waffles fresh and hot from my gramma's waffle iron. My DH has been addicted to the frozen pre-made things that pass for waffles these days A little while back I made real,old fashioned, ones for him using my gramma's iron! He melted with enjoyment but I think I'm now stuck making fresh waffles forever, lol. I found this on AllRecipes as I didn't find a cinnamon waffle recipe here on Food. It's easy to make them as soft or crisp as you like, the longer you leave them in the waffle iron the crisper they will become.
