Everything is better with sprinkles. They make food so much more fun! Why not add sprinkles into your next batch of waffles and call them funfetti waffles. And if you making funfetti waffles, might as well throw in some funfetti cake mix into the batter as well.
You’ve just created waffles that actually taste like cake! Now what sounds better than that?
Funfetti Waffle Batter:
1 1/3 cups All Purpose Flour
1/3 cup Funfetti Cake Mix
3 teaspoons Baking Powder
2 tablespoons Sugar
1 teaspoon Salt
1 1/4 cups Milk
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
1 1/2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
2 tablespoons Colorful Sprinkles
1 cup Confectioners Sugar
4 tablespoons Funfetti Cake Mix
4 tablespoons Milk
2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
Colorful Sprinkles, For Topping
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. This is to keep the waffles warm before serving.
To make the waffles, whisk together the flour, funfetti cake mix, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Make a well in the center and add the milk, egg, olive oil, and vanilla. Whisk together until fully incorporated and smooth. Mix in the sprinkles.
Lightly grease the waffle maker and, according to your manufactures instructions, heat the waffle maker until hot and ready. Carefully pour half of the batter into the middle of the waffle maker and bake until the edges are brown and crispy, about 5 minutes depending on your waffle maker. Repeat with the remaining batter.
Place the waffles in the oven to stay warm while making the glaze.
To make the glaze, whisk together the confectioners sugar, funfetti cake mix, milk, and vanilla extract. Whisk until smooth.
To assemble the waffles, cut the large waffles into 4 smaller squares. Pour the glaze over the waffles and then top with colorful sprinkles. Serve immediately and enjoy!
These waffles last up to 1 week in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Just be sure not to place the glaze and/or syrup on top of the waffle if planning on storing them for later use.
