Over the past few years, I have seen the idea of a funfetti version of breakfast to serve on days worthy of a celebration like a birthday or the first day of school. I finally decided to create a funfetti version myself and make funfetti waffles.
I have seen a cake batter funfetti version, but didn’t want to go that extreme as far as a sweetness level. So I took one of my favorite waffle recipe and created my own version. It was just what I was wanting, a delicious waffle with funfetti sprinkle incorporated into the batter.
Now you can serve these babies with just butter and maple syrup on top, but I wanted to make then a little more celebratory worthy. So I topped them with strawberry slices and whipped cream followed by an additional sprinkling of sprinkles.
Now my family then finished off their waffle with maple syrup. I thought the maple syrup just wasn’t the right flavor combination so I used chocolate syrup on mine. I’m not usually a fan of chocolate syrup, I tend to be more of a hot fudge gal, but let me tell you – I think it was the perfect flavor addition to finish the waffle off. Go for the chocolate syrup, it’s the perfect way to finish off this celebratory worthy waffle!
- 1½ cups flour

- In a bowl, whisk together the flour baking powder, salt and sugar.
- In another bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, vanilla, and oil.
- Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and whisk together just until combined. Then fold in the sprinkles.
