Confetti Waffles & Cinnamon Honey Herbed Butter

So I am going to admit this again... yes, I am. Last night, I, Lishie, watched the original Gene Wilder (who I adore) Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory for the FIRST time. I agree, odd, but I just had not seen it. My sister Perrie is over so we had giggle time & movie time. She watched this with me then went on to watch some weird cult horror film with my hubby.

This morning, my sister wanted waffles & inspired by the movie, I decided to make confetti waffles:

Confetti Waffles

  • 1 & 3/4 cup AP Flour
  • 2 TBSp Sugar
  • 1 TBSp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 & 3/4 cup Milk (I use Skim)
  • 1/2 cup Canola Oil
  • 1 tsp Vanilla

In a medium bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, & salt. Make a well in center of flour mixture- in other words, push all of the flour mix to the sides of the bowl creating a “hole” in the middle. Set aside.

In another medium bowl beat eggs slightly; stir in milk, oil, & vanilla. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy) then fold in the Sprinkles.

Pour 1 to 2 ice cream scoops of batter onto of a preheated, lightly cooking aprayed waffle baker. Close lid quickly; do not open until done!!!

Follow your waffle maker instructions- mine beeps when the waffle is finished cooking. Carefully lift the waffle (from its edge) from the hot iron with a heat resistant, silicone spatula.

To make the waffles extra special, I made an herbed butter to spread on (shaped as hearts- just mold the mixed butter into a cookie cutter then refrigerate until set.) I LOVE herbed butters... FOr breakfast spreads, for steaks, dinner, etc. They can really transform a meal into something magical.  
Cinnamon Honey Herbed Butter 
  • 1/2 Stick Butter
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 TBSp Honey

Mix all 3 ingredients together in a small bowl. Re-refrigerate to set. Serve!
