A Festive Valentine’s Day Breakfast
Who wouldn’t love to wake up to some delicious pink waffles? These pink velvet waffles are easy, they’re festive, and they’re super delicious, too! They’re crisp on the edges, tender in the middle, and have the perfect buttery waffle flavor.
I started with my favorite buttermilk waffle recipe, made a few little tweaks, and then made them extra festive with a little pink food coloring. We don’t use a lot of food coloring at our house, but I make an exception for holiday treats. It’s only a few times a year, and sometimes it’s fun to turn your food pretty colors, right? If you’re not a fan of food coloring, you could definitely leave it out. The waffles will taste just as delicious, but they may not be as cute. 🙂
How to Make Pink Velvet Waffles
I topped my waffles with whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and fresh berries, and it was definitely a good choice! The sky is the limit as far as toppings go, though… I’m sure they’d be delicious with any kind of syrup or fresh fruit. These waffles are definitely going to be part of my family’s Valentine’s Day tradition, and I hope you’ll try them too!

Homemade Pink Velvet Waffles Recipe
Pink Velvet Homemade Waffles
- 2 cups flour
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1 3/4 cups buttermilk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 6-8 drops pink food coloring
- chocolate syrup, fresh berries, and whipped cream (for topping)
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk together the butter, buttermilk, vanilla, eggs, and food coloring.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and stir until just combined (small lumps are okay). Let sit 5-10 minutes.
- While the batter is resting, heat your waffle iron. Add the batter and cook according to the waffle maker's directions. (For my waffle iron, 1 cup of batter cooked for four minutes was perfect.) Serve hot, topped with chocolate syrup, fresh berries, and whipped cream.
Is this recipe for a Belgian waffle maker??
Can I make the batter the night before?
I’ve always just made it a few minutes before making the waffles but I think it should work. If you try it, will you let me know how they turn out?
Does anyone know if you can bake these? I wanted to make these as sticks for my daughter’s preschool v-day party and I was going to use my pampered chef waffle stick pan. Advice? Baking temp??
