Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3.5 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs large eggs - separate yolks & whites
  • 1.5 cups milk
  • 1 cup butter melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Green Food Coloring
  • Red & Green Sprinkles
  • Gold Glitter Paper and Toothpick for the Star

Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl, mix the flour, sugar and baking powder.
  • Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites. In a separate bowl, lightly beat the egg yolks. Add the milk, butter and vanilla to the egg yolks.
  • Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients.
  • Now beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form (you can do this manually or with an electric hand mixer).
  • Add the egg whites to the batter mix and stir to combine.
  • Add in the green food coloring. Mix until you get the desired green color. You may need to add a lot depending on the strength of your food coloring.
  • You can now add your mixture into the waffle maker.
  • When baking in the waffle maker, make sure to set the waffle maker on the lowest setting possible and monitor the waffles. If overcooked, the waffles will turn brown so start off really low and check the coloring often for the first one.
  • Break the waffle up into 3 pieces to form the Christmas tree.
  • Cut out a star out of gold glitter paper and tape to a toothpick to put on top of the tree. Don't forget to remove the star before you eat the waffles!
  • Serve with Christmas sprinkles and maple syrup.

Notes

Note: serving portions will vary depending on waffle maker size. This recipe will make 5 Christmas tree waffles but this may vary depending on your waffle maker and how much batter you put into the waffle maker. 
This recipe is not very sweet because it is meant to be served with maple syrup. If you are not eating with maple syrup you may want to increase the amount of sugar to 1/2 cup.
