Funfetti WafflesPrint Recipe
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup unsalted butter - melted
- 2 medium eggs - beaten
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- ¾ cup milk
- ¼ cup creme fraiche
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- ¼ cup rainbow sprinkles (jimmies / hundreds-and-thousands / cylinder variety)
- vanilla ice cream - for serving
- extra sprinkles - for serving
- In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt.
- In a medium bowl, mix together the butter, eggs, sugar, milk, creme fraiche, and vanilla extract.
- Pour the wet mixture into the bowl with the dry mixture and stir together until incorporated. Do not over mix, and a few small lumps are fine. Slowly stir in the sprinkles, but again, do not over mix as the sprinkles may start to bleed color (this will be dependent on the brand of sprinkles you use).
- Pour or scoop the mixture into a hot waffle iron (I used a ¼ cup measuring cup for each waffle, but waffle makers vary). Cook waffles for 3 ½ - 4 minutes, until light brown and cooked through. Once done, transfer the waffles to a cooling rack. The waffles are very soft and light in color when they are done, but will quickly start to hold its shape once it starts to cool.
- Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and sprinkles on top.
