Carrot Cake Waffles

Carrot Cake Waffles

Carrot cake waffles are the second installment in my desire to convert desserts into waffles.  The first forays were the Black Forest Waffles and those were a success so building on that was going to be a challenge.  I started with Apple Pie Waffles that were good but left a little something out so I need to tweak my recipe before I post it.  The carrot cake waffles on the other hand hit the nail on the head. Originally I was going to post a cooking webisode on how to make corn tortillas, but then the carrot cake waffles were made and blew that recipe out of the water.  I can post that video tomorrow but I wanted to get this recipe up today so that you could make them this weekend.  These would be perfect on a lazy sunday morning or if you can swing it right after a race.  Imagine having carrot cake waffles after running your heart out.  Wait, I don't have to imagine as I'm racing tomorrow.  Looks like I will be making these waffles again tonight, freeze them and then when I get home from the race I will have a great recover meal. Enough about me and races you are saying so with that I will provide you with the recipe to the carrot cake waffles:

Raisins are also a favorite to be added to carrot cake so add them to your carrot cake waffles is you so choose.  You can also top the waffles with walnuts if you do not have pecans as well as real maple syrup instead of honey.
