I love red velvet anything and these red velvet waffles are no exception. They’re such a fun treat for a weekend or holiday breakfast! Red velvet always makes a surge around certain holidays. Christmas, Valentine’s Day and the 4th of July always seem to have a ton of fun red velvet foods attached to them. I mean, what’s more festive and celebratory than food that can match your décor?! I, being a bit OCD, happen to enjoy when my food can match my plate, cup, napkins and the rest of the tablescape. Who’s with me on that? Or am I sounding a little alone and sad? I know there’s got to be someone out there who appreciates my need and love of the absolute perfection that happens when food and table are all perfect and the same. Anyone? …

Red velvet is one of those things that has crept up on the food world and taken over. Red velvet is one of those classic cakes, from the post-depression era that has become increasingly popular in recent years.

What started as cake and cupcakes, has now evolved into cake pops, pancakes, muffins, donuts, fudge, whoopee pies, drinks, cocktails, cookies; basically everything and anything can be “red velveted”. You know how Bubba could recite hundreds of shrimp based dishes? Well, now we can do the same with red velvet. And that’s a reference to Forest Gump in case you’re like my sister and have NEVER seen it. That’s right, she’s never seen Forest Gump.

This recipe was adapted from Sarah Hearts, she makes hers with regular all-purpose flour. I used my gluten-free all-purpose flour mix to make it gluten-free. You can make it either way but just be sure to omit the xanthan gum if you’re not using gluten-free flour.

Whether you make these gluten-free or not, for a holiday or for a regular old day, enjoy!

Red velvet anything is an instant winner in my books. These waffles look delicious.. the only thing that could make them better is a sweet cream cheese topping! I have to try the recipe.

I agree, sweet cream cheese would be awesome on these - I just didn't have any cream cheese at the time :)
