Red Velvet Waffles with Cream Cheese Icing Drizzle

Giving credit where credit is due, this recipe is courtesy of the great Rachael Ray. I'm a sucker for red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing. I'm a sucker for anything made with strawberries. I'm a sucker for waffles. This dessert is a trifecta as far as I'm concerned! Marry those three delicious components and what more could a girl ask for?!

Red Velvet Waffles with Cream Cheese Icing Drizzle


  • 1 box of red velvet cake mix
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • For the Cream Cheese Icing Drizzle:
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, one small block, softened
  • 3/4 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • For the Red Berry Salad:
  • 2 cups strawberries, sliced
  • 1 cup red raspberries
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

Yields: 8 waffles


Preheat waffle maker to medium-high heat.

Prepare cake mix to package directions. Once waffle iron is hot, spray with cooking spray. Pour 2 cups (about half) of the cake batter into the waffle iron. Cook 5 minutes; carefully remove from the waffle maker. 
For the cream cheese drizzle, cream together cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and salt into a bowl. Slowly whisk in milk. Set aside.
Mix together all ingredients for the red berry salad in a small bowl.
Top each waffle with a heaping spoonful of red berry salad and a drizzle of cream cheese.
