Red Velvet Waffle Breakfast Treats

For some reason, waffles always remind me of vacations, food treats out of the ordinary. Maybe it’s because I associate them with hotels where you can make your own waffles for breakfast or prepared beside your table. So when I make them at home, it always feels like a special occasion.

These waf­fles would be per­fect for a hol­i­day or cel­e­bra­tion, or any time you want break­fast to feel a lit­tle note­wor­thy. They are amaz­ing topped with Cream Cheese Driz­zle (recipe fol­lows), but I also love them with just a driz­zle of maple syrup.

Ingre­di­ents (Serves 6)

  • 2 cups all-pur­pose flour
  • 1 tea­spoon bak­ing soda
  • 1 tea­spoon bak­ing powder
  • 12 tea­spoon table salt
  • 4 table­spoons (12 stick) unsalt­ed but­ter, melted
  • 14 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs, separated
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 12 table­spoons nat­ur­al unsweet­ened cocoa powder
  • 1 table­spoon red liq­uid food coloring

Method

  1. Pre­heat the oven to 200° F and pre­heat a waf­fle iron. Whisk the flour, bak­ing soda, bak­ing pow­der, and salt in a large bowl to combine.
  2. Com­bine the melt­ed but­ter and brown sug­ar in a sep­a­rate large bowl. Whisk in the egg yolks and but­ter­milk. Mix the cocoa pow­der and red food col­or­ing in a small bowl to make a smooth paste, then whisk the paste into the but­ter mix­ture. Stir the wet ingre­di­ents into the dry ingre­di­ents just until moist­ened (the bat­ter should be slight­ly lumpy).
  3. Beat the egg whites in a medi­um bowl with an elec­tric mix­er until stiff peaks form. Stir one-quar­ter of the egg whites into the bat­ter to light­en it. Then fold in the remain­ing egg whites gen­tly but thoroughly.
  4. Spray a waf­fle iron with non­stick cook­ing spray or brush with melt­ed but­ter. Cook the waf­fles accord­ing to the manufacturer’s instruc­tions. As they’re done, put them on a bak­ing sheet and slide them into the oven to keep them warm while you cook the remain­ing waffles.
