Red Velvet Waffle

 This easy waffle recipe is made from scratch, with ingredients found in any pantry. Paired with a delicious cream cheese glaze, these colourful waffles are the perfect Christmas morning breakfast.

Red Velvet Waffles

When the holiday's come around, I often struggle on deciding what to make for breakfast. Holiday dinners are always easy, as we usually stick with the traditional turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and veggies. But breakfast always seems to get the short end of the stick. These fluffy Red Velvet Waffles are the perfect special holiday breakfast idea!

Red Velvet Waffles

What ingredients are used to make Red Velvet Waffles?

In this recipe, I use many of the same ingredients found in traditional Red Velvet Cake: flour, eggs, cocoa powder, sugar, buttermilk, eggs and red food colouring.

Is pancake batter the same as waffle batter?

While pancake batter and waffle batter are similar in the way they both contain flour, eggs, leavening agent and sugar; waffle batter is thicker and is usually sweeter, containing more fat (oil or melted butter).

How to make Red Velvet Waffles

Start by combining the dry ingredients: flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. 

In a second mixing bowl whisk the wet ingredients- eggs, buttermilk, sugar, red gel food colouring and melted butter.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet, mixing until a thick batter forms.

Cook the batter in a preheated waffle iron, which has been sprayed with cooking spray.

Make the white chocolate cream cheese sauce by combining butter, cream cheese, white chocolate, milk and vanilla. Serve with the cooked waffles.

Equipment needed for this recipe

Red Velvet Waffles with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Sauce

4 Tbs butter, melted
3 Tbs sugar
2 1/2 Tbs cocoa powder
2 eggs
2 Tbs red food colour
2 C flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2- 3/4 C butter milk

For the sauce:

2 Tbs butter
4 oz light cream cheese
1/3 C white chocolate wafers
3 Tbs milk
1/2 tsp clear vanilla extract

Preheat your waffle iron.

In a medium bowl, combine the melted butter with the sugar. Add in eggs, butter milk and red food colour; mix until well combined. In a small bowl sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet. Stir to form a somewhat thick smooth batter, adding more milk if too thick (should be slightly thicker than pancake batter).

Spray preheated waffle plates with non stick spray. Pour batter onto hot plates, making sure to spread and completely cover them. Close lid and cook for 5 minutes.

While waffles are cooking, melt butter in a small skillet. Add the softened cream cheese and milk. Whisk until cream cheese is melted and mixture is smooth. Add in the vanilla and white chocolate; stirring until it is melted and incorporated. Pour sauce over hot waffles and serve.

  11. Do you think beetroot juice would work instead of food colouring? I am trying to keep everything as natural as possible, but it does not work every time.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

The BEST Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

 Hard boiled eggs are transformed into a magnificent, indulgent appetizer, by mixing the yolks with sharp cheddar cheese and smokey bacon. A welcome addition to any gathering and a great way to use those coloured hard boiled Easter eggs! Jump to Recipe Eater growing up was always a magical time. I love how my parents tried to make holidays such as Eater and Christmas so magical. I was always in awe when I would wake up to Easter treats on the couch, on Easter morning. It was a welcome sight after partaking in Lent for 40 days. Every lent we would give up candy, making us appreciate our Easter treats all that much more. Our family is Catholic, so Easter and Christmas were centered around religion and teachings, but I appreciate that Mom and Dad also made it fun and let us believe in things like the Easter Bunny and Santa Clause.  Mom would buy the Easter egg dying kits and we would colour eggs on the Saturday before Easter. Everyone would choose their favourite to enjoy for breakfast af
