Carrot Cake Waffalicious!!

Apr 13, 2015

Seriously, I think this is the best waffle I have ever had. The grits are great also! This was the perfect sized brunch, I was totally satisfied after I finished this meal and I didbn’t feel guilty at all. It went great with some warm raspberry tea outside by the pool. I know, I have such a tough job having to taste food and take their photos! Seriously though, try this out, you will not regret it!

 

A quick cooking note, you may want to leave it on the waffle iron just a little bit longer. Judging by the iron’s temperature, you may have to adjust the cooking time.
