red velvet waffles

Stay in this Sunday and make a batch of red velvet waffles! This is the perfect brunch to follow the lovers holiday of Valentine's Day. I found this recipe on A Beautiful Mess blog and had to share! Looks like I am going to have to dig through my cupboards to find a waffle iron - I'm sure my mom has one somewhere!

Red Velvet Waffles (makes 4-5)
1/2 cup + 3 tablespoons of flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 tablespoon cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon espresso powder (optional)
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup oil (or vegetable oil)
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon red food colouring

In a bowl combine the dry ingredients (the first seven listed above) and whisk to incorporate. Now ass the remaining ingredients and stir until just combined. Allow the batter to rest for 20 minutes. Follow your particular waffle iron directions and make waffles.

Cream Cheese Syrup (makes about 2 1/2 cups)
8 oz. cream cheese
3/4 cup cream (or use half and half)
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a pot combine the cream cheese, cream and sugar. It helps if you cube the cream cheese into 8 or so small squares. Heat over medium heat until the cream cheese begins to become more liquid. Whisk as you heat to remove any lumps. Once the mixture has become a thick syrup remove from heat and stir in a vanilla. If you want to thin the sauce out even more feel free to add more cream
