Ok, so I wanted to try a fun Valentines Day breakfast. I researched some online recipes and found that many red velvet waffles were time consuming and people complained of a rubbery texture...ew. This one appealed to me because it was easy but I wasn't expecting too much. Wow was I ever wrong!! These had the perfect red velvet flavor, a moist, cakey texture with a light crunch on the outside! Perfect for a special day, shower, or a brunch. I will be impressing guests with these for years to come. Try it!!!!!
2 c baking mix (I used Jiffy Baking Mix, but you could use Bisquick)
1 1/4 c milk
1/4 c cocoa powder
1/4 c sugar
1 T red food coloring
1 t vanilla
2 T melted butter
Mix together dry ingredients, then add wet ingredients adding the melted butter last. Scoop onto hot and lightly sprayed (with cooking oil) waffle iron.
Top with the following options:
Cream Cheese Butter/ REAL Maple Syrup
---To make Cream Cheese butter use equal parts softened butter and softened cream cheese stir together and dollop onto warm waffle.
Or Cream Cheese Frosting
4 oz cream cheese softened
3 T butter softened
1 t vanilla
1/4-1/3 c milk
2 c powdered sugar
Mix and stir until you reach a desired consistency...you want it to be thicker than a glaze but still thin enough to drizzle and spread.
