Red Velvet Waffles with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting


  • 1-½ cup All-purpose Flour
  • ¼ cups Cocoa Powder
  • 5 Tablespoons Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1-½ teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 2  Eggs
  • 1-¾ cup Whole Milk
  • 6 Tablespoons Butter, Melted And Slightly Cooled
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 ounce, fluid Red Food Coloring
  • Chocolate Chips, To Serve
  • ¼ cups Cream Cheese, Softened
  • ½ cups Powdered Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter, Softened
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup
  • 3 Tablespoons Milk (to Thin)

Preparation Instructions

For the waffles:
Start heating up your waffle iron to medium-high heat. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, sugar, salt, baking powder) and whisk them to combine. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, butter, vanilla, and food coloring until combined. Whisk in the dry ingredients to the wet ones until combined (the batter will have little lumps in it, you want that!).
Pour 1/2 cup batter in the center of the iron and close. Cook until the waffles are crispy and cooked through. Carefully remove the waffle, drizzle with maple cream cheese (recipe below) and chocolate chips.

For the maple cream cheese syrup:
Beat all the ingredients together until it forms a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over waffles and top them with chocolate chips.

Turkey Rama Fun

So every year around this time comes the Turkey Rama, its actually quite fun. All the local vendors bring there wares into the streets to sell. There is a carnival with fun rides. And lots of good eats. Pacer, Shelby(the dog) and I went to Los Molcajetes Mexican Restaurant. We sat outside and enjoyed delicious food while people watching. Then we went and picked up Abby & Grace Andrew to go have some more fun.
