  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter - melted
  • 2 medium eggs - beaten
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup creme fraiche
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 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.
  • Pour or scoop the mixture into a hot waffle iron (I used a 1/4 cup measuring cup for each waffle, but waffle makers vary). Cook waffles for 3 1/2 - 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.
