    Table of Contents


    For the Carrot Cake Waffles:

    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 cup finely grated carrots
    • 1/4 cup crushed pineapple, drained
    • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

    For the Cream Cheese Glaze:

    • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
    • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
    • 2 tablespoons milk
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


    Prepare the Waffle Batter:

    In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.

    In a separate bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, eggs, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract until well combined.

    Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

    Fold in the grated carrots, crushed pineapple, and chopped nuts (if using) until evenly distributed throughout the batter.

    Preheat the Waffle Iron:

    Preheat your waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Lightly grease the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray.

    Cook the Waffles:

    Spoon the batter onto the preheated waffle iron, using about 1/2 cup of batter per waffle (adjust according to the size of your waffle iron).

    Close the lid and cook the waffles for 4-5 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp. Repeat with the remaining batter.

    Make the Cream Cheese Glaze:

    In a medium mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth and creamy.

    Add the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract, and beat until well combined and smooth. Adjust the consistency by adding more milk if needed.

    Serve the Waffles:

    Once the waffles are cooked, transfer them to serving plates.

    Drizzle the cream cheese glaze over the warm waffles, allowing it to melt slightly.

    Serve the carrot cake waffles immediately, garnished with additional chopped nuts or a sprinkle of cinnamon if desired.
