Funfetti Cake Waffles

I expect I'll always have a soft spot for funfetti cake, because one of the first evenings I ever spent with my husband, before we were even dating, involved baking funfetti cupcakes from a box mix with my husband and one of his best friends. I haven't had a funfetti cupcake since becoming vegan, but when the idea of cake batter waffles crossed my mind, funfetti seemed like the obvious flavor choice.  The waffles  turned out fun and festive, though I'd reserve them for dessert and not serve them for breakfast unless you have a mouthful of sweet teeth.

Makes about 5 waffles.

The Ingredients:
1 1/2 c flour
2/3 c sugar
1 t baking powder
1 t arrowroot
1/2 t salt
1 1/3 c almond milk
1/2 c oil
1 1/2 t vanilla
2 T confetti-style sprinkles, plus more for serving

The Process:

  1. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, arrowroot, and salt.
  2. Whisk in almond milk, oil, and vanilla until just combined.
  3. Stir in 2 T of sprinkles.
  4. Cook on a hot, unoiled waffle iron until done.
  5. Serve topped with ice cream and more sprinkles.


  1. I'm jealous of your waffle maker! I don't have one, and I'm scared that if I did get one I'd put on about 10lbs in a week eating waffles!

    I wanted to comment to say that I added you to my blog roll. If you wanted to have a look at my blog (I only just started it!) and maybe follow me, that would be good. I'm vegetarian, but a lot of the recipes will be vegan. And I'd love to see veganised versions of my baking, if you like the look of any of my recipes! Sorry for the shameless self-promotion!



    1. I love waffles so much, I have 2 waffle irons so I can cook them for a crowd. Thanks for dropping by, and happy blogging!

  2. what can i use instead of arrowroot?

    1. Cornstarch or tapioca starch would probably also work.
