Sometimes, it’s fun to sit and search for unique and interesting holidays. Did you know there is a day dedicated to right-brained people (right-brainers, ahoy!)? And a day meant to celebrate Polish culture? You better believe I’ll be in line for that one.
There is also an entire week dedicated to one of my most favorite foods on this planet: waffles.
I’ve expressed my love for waffles quite a few times. But I just want to be sure you understand that my infatuation with waffles is no joke. I asked (and by asked, I mean begged, pleaded, threatened and browbeat) B for years to get me a waffle maker. This part birthday, he did. He got me the creme de la creme of waffle makers. It is beautiful and I love it.
So when I saw there was an entire week to celebrate the lovely food from the gods, I knew a big ordeal was mandatory. This week, we celebrate waffles. Tune in every day for waffles (and waffle-related treats) of all kinds, from sweet to savory and maybe even a little crazy. This first one? It’s a doozy.
In the words of the great Samuel L. Jackson circa Jurrasica Park, “Hold on to your butts.”
I present you with funfetti waffles covered in a sprinkled icing glaze.
- 2¼ cup flour
- 4 tsp. baking powder
- 2 eggs
- 1¾ cup milk
- 3 Tbsp. oil
- For glaze:
- 6 Tbsp. powdered sugar
- 2-4 Tbsp. heavy cream
- Preheat your waffle maker.
- In a large bowl, whisk together milk, eggs and oil
- In a smaller bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Add it to the milk mixture and stir to combine.
- Add in a few tablespoons of sprinkles and mix well.
- Spoon about ⅓ cup of waffle mixture onto your waffle maker and cook for 7 minutes until crisp.
- While the waffles cook, prepare your glaze. Combine powdered sugar with 2 Tbsp. of heavy cream and mix well. It should be somewhat thin. Add heavy cream by the tablespoon until the icing reaches the consistency you want.
- Top the finished waffles with icing and additional sprinkles.
