How to Make Christmas Morning Rum Raisin Belgian Waffles

Step-by-Step

  1. Take raisins and cover with rum for 1 day or at least overnight. Set aside.
  2. Beat egg yolks and sugar for 1 minute. Add vanilla, rum extract, and melted butter. Beat until well incorporated. At this step, you can optionally brown your butter before you combine for a nuttier taste.
  3. Separately, beat the heavy cream until it thickens, but does not become whipped cream yet. Add milk, eggnog, and rum.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, and baking powder. Toss with a fork until combined.
  5. Alternately add the egg mixture and milk mixture to the flour mixture, beating as you go. Continue until all is added and well combined.
  6. Add rum raisins and jimmies (sprinkles). Stir well.
  7. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks are formed. Fold into batter.
  8. Preheat your waffle iron. Spray only the first time with non-stick spray. Follow your particular waffle iron instructions.
  9. Serve with syrup, whipped cream, and sprinkles.
  10. If making the buttered rum syrup, combine all ingredients in a sauce pan and cook down until a syrupy consistency. Serve warm.
