From the title of this, you can probably tell that I love waffles! After all, they are great for any meal of the day, and can be made either sweet or savory (or both if you’re willing to get creative). If you’re a fellow waffle lover and are looking for new recipes to expand your horizons, then the recipes below are those you definitely need to try. Trust me, once you put a bite of one of these fluffy treasures in your mouth, you’ll be glad you took the time to make them. Let’s get started!
1. Red Velvet Waffles
Red velvet isn’t just for cake! All it takes it one taste to make you fall in love with these cake-inspired waffles.
- 2 Large Eggs
- 1.5 Teaspoons Vanilla
- 1/4 Cup Melted Butter
- 4.5 Teaspoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
- 1 1/4 Cups Sugar
- 2 Cups Flour
- 2 Drops Red Gel Food Coloring
- 2 Cups Buttermilk
Heat up that waffle iron (greasing if necessary) to start. After this, separate the whites from your egg yolks and beat them with a mixer until they are stiff. Set this aside, then mix all your wet and dry ingredients in separate bowls. Once finished, combine these into a larger bowl with the egg yolks, then fold in the egg whites until everything looks mixed together. Pour the batter into your waffle iron and cook until nice and fluffy! To top these off, heat up a little bit of canned cream cheese frosting and drizzle it on (trust me you won’t regret this). Enjoy!
2. Bacon Waffles
Sweet meets savory in this amazing waffle. Take your breakfast to the next level.
- .5 Tablespoon Maple Syrup
- 2 Cups Flour
- 3 Teaspoons Baking Powder
- 2 Large Eggs
- 1.5 Cups Milk
- 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, Melted
- 1 Tablespoon Salted Butter, Melted
- 6 Slices Cooked Bacon, Chopped
Start by heating up your waffle iron and separating the egg whites from the yolks in a small bowl. Beat the egg whites with a mixer until they’re stiff, then mix the egg yolks with butter and milk in a separate bowl. (Lots of separate bowls, but more dishes means it’s tastier!) Grab yet another bowl to mix your dry ingredients in, then start combining the dry with the wet ingredients until everything is mixed together. Fold in the egg whites, then pour your batter into a hot waffle iron.
If you’ve started to think I’ve forgotten the bacon, think again! Stick pieces of these right on top of your batter before closing the iron shut. Cook your waffle as normal, then enjoy with extra maple syrup as you’re blasted to waffle heaven.
3. Cinnamon Roll Waffles
If you haven’t tried this, then you haven’t lived! You won’t regret making this recipe, especially since it requires absolutely no mixing bowls.
- Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls (ya know, the kind in the can)
Yes, that’s seriously it. Grease your waffle iron, pop that can of rolls open and then stick one in each square of your iron. Cook for 3 minutes before topping with the included icing, and enjoy devouring.
Try Them All
I promise that you’ll love any of these waffle recipes, and will want to make them for your close friends and family (or just yourself because they are so delicious). You can even stick extras in the freezer for a quick treat when you don’t have time to cook!
