Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoon cocoa powder, dark
  • non-stick cooking spray, as needed
  • 1 teaspoon red food coloring
  • 1/3 cup oil, vegetable
  • 1 ½ cup water, cold
  • 2 eggs, large
  • red velvet batter
  • 3 cups Belgium waffle mix

Directions

In a stainless steel bowl, add the eggs and beat lightly. Then add the water, cocoa and food coloring.

Whisk to combine then slowly add the waffle mix to the bowl, while stirring.

Whisk to remove the lumps in the batter until smooth.  Let batter sit for 30 minutes.

Preheat waffle iron and spray lightly with non-stick spray.

Ladle batter into hot iron’s surface and cook waffle for 3-4 minutes or according to waffle iron cooking time directions.

Once waffle is cooked, remove from the iron onto a cutting board and cut into 4 equal wedges.

Arrange the wedges on a platter and lean the pieces off of each other for presentation.

Drizzle your favorite sauce, such as raspberry or strawberry sauce or maple syrup, and/or fresh raspberries or sliced strawberries.

Dust waffles with cocoa and powdered sugar on and around the waffles and serve with extra warm maple syrup.  Add a side of crispy bacon for a savory twist!

Waffle Shopping Tip

What’s the difference between brown and white eggs? Besides color, nothing – different breeds of chicken account for the differences in color – quality and freshness are what really count.

Waffle Cooking Tip

In addition to keeping foods like granola, yogurt, and fruit on hand, plan ahead for hectic weekdays by whipping up extra batches of waffles or pancakes and individually freezing them for easy morning meals.
