Carrot cake waffles

Updated: Apr 2, 2020

The waffle diet continues, and I actually do think I might have lost a little bit... maybe weight or perhaps more likely my mind. However in these days I'll take what I can get and these carrot cake waffles are GREAT for breakfast or as actual cake. The best thing: Now you can also eat cake waffles and get your veggies too, and keep that good conscience. WIN:WIN.

Check out how the waffle diet started.

The other day I was testing the rösti waffle (recipe coming later) and it dawned on me: any root vegetable will make a great waffle. Also I have been off sugar, wheat, dairy, coffee and alcohol for almost three weeks and I NEED SOME FREAKIN' CAKE!!!! So, I decided to create the carrot cake waffle, the closest thing to the real deal so far.

First version I tried was the idea of a finely blended carrot batter - it was OK but tasted nothing like carrot cake - VERY disappointing.

Second version - SUCCESS!

And as with everything else in the waffle diet, it's fast and easy to make.
