Red Velvet Waffles


πŸ’– Let's have a Valentine Tea Party with some Red Velvet Waffles. πŸ’–


My sister gave me this adorable teapot several years ago.


My darling daughter gave me this pretty teacup awhile back and I thought it looked so pretty with my heart shaped plates. A very sweet friend sent me two of these heart-shaped tea diffusers, along with.....


.....this heavenly Blooming Rose tea!  Oh my, I felt like a QueenπŸ’• in sipping this loose leaf tea!

 

Isn't this tea beautiful?? It looks like a pretty potpourri!  The rose flavor is,  very subtle and sublime.

 

My daughter also gave me this whimsical vase, and she is so fun to style her "hair" with flowers.


My late beloved mom gave me these floating candles. She was always thinking of me, and I miss her.


Yes, I kept my bedroom tree up and decorated it with Valentine decor.  It's sitting on my childhood sled.  Who knows, maybe I'll just keep it up and change out the decorations for the seasons?? I have the lights on a timer, and they pop on in the morning for a bit, and then again in the evening.  


Here's the waffle maker that I used.  Target, Wal Mart and Amazon sell these.


Yield: About 32 (see Note)

Red Velvet Waffles

Red Velvet Waffles

These waffles are soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside...the perfect texture!

Ingredients

  • Waffles:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. salt (I used a pinch)
  • 1 and 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter (I used salted, and only used a pinch of salt)
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tbsp.red food coloring
  • Cream Cheese Icing:
  • 2 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla
  • 2-3 tbsp. milk

Instructions

  • For the Waffles:
  • Melt the butter, and let it cool before it is added to the mix.
  • Mix together the dry ingredients and set aside.
  • Beat the eggs in a bowl.  Slowly stir in the buttermilk, butter, vanilla, and food coloring.
  • Mix the dry ingredients into the wet in three rounds, fully incorporating the dry before adding the next round.
  • Add 3.5 tbsp. of batter to the mini waffle maker.  If you are using a larger maker, you'll have to read your directions for your brand.
  • For the icing:
  • Mix all the ingredients together until smooth and thin enough to pour.

Notes:

I only made half of this recipe and still got 16 waffles. You can freeze the extras and pop them in your toaster or toaster oven for a delicious treat!   Although, I didn't halve the icing!


Thank you for your visit! xo

  11. Oh Kitty, I love this post. So many sweet memories from such lovely gifts, the teapot from your sweet sister is lovely and the beautiful teacup from your sweet daughter. And, the special floating candles from your dear mom. I love rose tea, I brought some home from a restaurant we dined in on a trip. It was like yours, loose and as pretty as it was good. Your waffles sound delicious. Wishing you a very Happy Valentine's Day.

  12. Looks a lot like love in your home, Kitty! ♥ I'm glad you've kept your tree up. It looks adorable with the hearts and teddy bears and the lights are cheerful. Heart shaped waffles are a perfect way to start the day during the days leading up to Valentine's Day!

  13. I LOVE the thoughts of having the lighted tree left up all year in your bedroom! What a neat idea! You could decorate it in so many different ways, but I just love the Valentine decor you have on yours. I saw something recently that I am hoping to be able to buy soon. It is a lighted willow tree. Have you seen them? It was all white and kind of tall, and it has the little twinkle, clear lights on it. I love primitive decor, so it will fit in perfectly in our home. I love anything with twinkle lights - they are just so comforting at night. I miss Christmas! One of my favorite things to do is watch the lights on the tree at night. Your little tree solves that problem and keeps the comforting glow going all year round! God bless you, sweet friend. :)

Enjoy it all and Happy Valentine’s Day. Xo

  15. I love all your goodies Kitty and Red Velvet waffles sound amazing! Valentine's Day is my son's birthday and he has requested his favorite breakfast, sausage & gravy biscuit casserole. The rose tea sounds so good, and the lady vase of red carnations is adorable! I love the teddy bears on your Valentine tree, and yes keep it up and enjoy it through all the seasons and holidays!
