We love these funfetti waffles for birthday breakfasts or fun celebrations or Sunday brunch. They are just as easy to throw together as regular waffles and are packed with all the cake batter flavor.
You could even turn these into dessert with a scoop of ice cream and some hot fudge sauce.
Ingredients for Funfetti Waffles
Start by gathering the ingredients for these delicious waffles. Here’s what you are going to need:
Make Funfetti Waffle Batter
Grab two bowls, one for the wet ingredients and one for the dry ingredients.
Add buttermilk, vegetable oil, eggs, sugar, vanilla and almond extract to a bowl and whisk well. Set aside.
In the second bowl, stir together the dry ingredients and sprinkles then make a well in the middle. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and fold together until the batter just comes together.
Let It Rest
A trick to making these waffles thick yet light and fluffy is letting the batter rest at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes.
But why? It yields an airy, tender waffle because the gluten has time to relax. It will also help create a crisp exterior.
While the batter is resting, preheat your waffle maker. The cook time for your waffles will depend on your waffle maker.
The amount of batter will also depend on the type of waffle maker. If you’re using a standard round waffle maker, you’ll get about 10 waffles while a Belgium waffle maker will yield 5 to 6.
Waffle tip: don’t lift the top of the waffle maker until it has stopped steaming. They should be ready to go when the steam stops coming out of the sides. If not, cook a little longer until they are to your liking.
But lifting too soon will tear and possibly ruin your waffles.
