Red * White * Blue – Fruity Waffles

With the 4th of July just a few days away, I thought it would be fun to share my red, white and blue fruity waffle recipe with you.  It is a simple and colorful twist on waffles,  that everyone in your family will love!  Waffles are made just about every weekend in our home, so knowing that a simple and easy change-up to our regular waffle routine can be done with a splash of color and fun toppings… makes this chef happy!

The recipe is simple and scrumptious, but the key to it all is having fun while cooking!

Red, White & Blue - Fruity Waffles


Red, White & Blue Fruity Waffles

Ingredients:

-Round Classic Waffle Maker – This Cuisinart waffle maker is my favorite!!!  It is easy to use and easy to store in the cabinet.  Check it out!

-Your typical waffle mix & needed mix ins – follow the directions on the box

-Red & Blue Food Coloring

-Cooking spray

-Strawberries, Blueberries & Blackberries – small package of each

-Whip Cream – any brand and style

…That’s it, let’s get to cooking!

Directions:

-Plug in your waffle maker to give it time to warm up while you are prepping the batter.  I usually cook on the medium setting.

-Mix together your favorite, go-to, waffle mix.  Once you have it prepared, split it into three equal bowls.

-In one bowl add the red food coloring.  I prefer bright colors, so I started with 6 drops in each.  Continue adding one drop at a time, until you have your desired color.   Repeat again with the blue food coloring.  You will leave the third bowl and waffle mixture as is, it is your white.

-Spray down the waffle maker with cooking spray and pour one batter in at a time to cook.  Don’t forget to spray in between each waffle.

I love this recipe and so does my family.  Not just because these waffles are delicious, but because it is such a fast meal to whip-up and serve.  My daughter adores the taste, but she also loves that I let her help in the kitchen.  If you are looking for a kid-friendly cooking experience, this is the one.  I let me 3 year old daughter mix up the batter,  add in the color, decorate with the fun toppings and of course enjoy her cooking!  It makes for a fun memory with her, followed by a yummy treat!


Wishing you all a beautiful 4th of July weekend!  Have fun spending the day and weekend with your loved ones and surprise them with these waffles, they will think you slaved in the kitchen all morning!www.espressoeverafter.com
