Funfetti Waffles

I've been waiting for the perfect opportunity waffletunity to share my Funfetti waffle recipe with you and since it is Sunday, and Sundays were made for awesome breakfasts it hit me that today is the day! I have always been a lover of waffles, having been born and bred on Waffle House food I would say it has been a staple in my diet, vocabulary, and list of ultimate favorite items ever created. Waffles are great with butter, they are fantastic with syrup, they are great vehicles for fried chicken and they are even awesome to use as a bread substitute for sandwiches.

Being a huge lover of cakes, cupcakes and sweets all-around, I figured why not make some breakfast treats for all the sweet teeth out there! I know some folks cannot do sweets for breakfast, but I am one to have them at any part of the day...I don't discriminate! I hope you find this recipe easy and most importantly, delicious! Get that waffle maker heating up and let's get to it, y'all.

Funfetti Waffles

To make the waffles you will need:

  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup yellow cake mix
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup multicolored sprinkles

For the drizzle topping you will need:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • A few drops of lemon juice
  • 1 tbs. milk
  • 1 tsp. melted butter

What to do:

  1. Heat your waffle maker to your desired temperature. I usually do it at a medium-high level so they are crispy yet fluffy still. 
  2. In a large bowl, whisk egg, vanilla, lemon juice and milk until combined. 
  3. Add flour, cake mix, salt and sprinkles to the wet ingredients and mix until thoroughly blended and no lumps are present. The batter should be runny and easily poured. 
  4. Pour batter mixture into a waffle maker for about 5 minutes or until the desired crispiness has been reached. 
  5. While your waffle is cooking, make the drizzle topping by combining the powdered sugar, melted butter with the milk, lemon juice, and vanilla in a bowl with a whisk. Whisk the ingredients until the powdered sugar is thoroughly mixed and smooth. 
  6. Take your waffle out of the waffle maker and drizzle topping all over to your heart's content. If you are feeling like you need a bit more sweetness, add some whipped cream or additional sprinkles. 

I hope you enjoy this Sunday with me by having your own Funfetti waffles! Please don't forget to tell me all about your favorite waffle toppings in the comments below!
