These waffles are satisfying and delicious. I actually made them three weekends in a row! We have decided that these waffles are good for any meal of the day! The first time we had them for breakfast, the next weekend I made them for brunch with the kids and the third time, well we had them for dessert. The cream cheese frosting is the perfect accompaniment for these waffles, but if that isn't enough, feel free to top it with syrup also. (I did!) Leave a message and let me know what you think of them. :)

These carrot cake waffles have a few more steps than most, but they are fabulous and well worth the effort. This waffle's fluffy and tender on the inside but crisp on the outside. The flavor mimics a carrot cake with little bits of fruit that not only add flavor but texture. As if the waffle itself isn't good enough, the cream cheese butter makes these super special. When it melts on the warm waffle, pure heaven! Great for a special breakfast or brunch.

Note: These waffles fluff up and spread a bit, so do not overfill the waffle iron. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
