The Light Beer Waffle

Light Beer Waffle

Light beer is not my thing, but finally, I have one more beer waffle recipe for you light beer lovers.

It’s just as easy as dark beer and Guinness pancakes…maybe easier then winocakes but no matter if you like light beer I suppose it deserves its own little recipe.  I make things and say…it’s all for the blog.  I only blog for my readers and only make weird combinations of pancakes…for the readers…

Light beer and dark beer is like asking people if they like vanilla or chocolate ice cream then when giving a recipe just saying oh sub either or…they should both be equal…I guess.

So that is that.  Light Beer Waffles are simple and I’m just bringing your attention that beer waffles do exist. 


Light Beer Waffle Ingredients:

2/3 cup flour (all-purpose flour, wheat flour)

1 egg

1tsp baking powder

6 ounces light beer (for some reason all I had at the time was bud light lime…so that’s that).

Light Beer Waffle Recipe:

  1. Preheat a waffle maker (I like Belgian waffle maker) and use cooking spray.
  2. Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl in a separate bowl.
  3. Add wet ingredients (including light beer) together and mix in a separate mixing medium bowl.
  4. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
  5. Pour waffle batter into preheated waffle iron and cook until golden brown.
  6. After cooked, put on a plate and add a layer of melted butter, maple syrup, honey vanilla greek yogurt, whipped cream, and powdered sugar.

Question for you: Favorite light beer? Would you try a light beer waffle?  What about a craft beer waffle? 

I guess mine would be bud light lime, but I blame that on one of my housemates from college liking bud light.


Okay don’t get your panties in a bunch.  After last week’s Guinness Pancakes those who did not like Guinness (weird) asked if there were any alternatives.  Did you ask that at college ragers too?  Of course there are alternatives to beer.  I’ll probably spend the next couple of weeks experimenting with my inner alchi.  (YAY for being 21). 

Why not make a winocake (winowaffle?).


To be quite honest, I enjoy wine but I don’t drink a lot of it.  I still would rather have a bottle of beer but if someone is offering wine at a nice get together I usually won’t turn it down.  That is why this week is for all you wine lovers a nice delectable wine pancake.  I’m guessing you might want to make this for a brunch or a nice breakfast with the girls but you never know. 

2/3 cup flour

¼ cup dark cocoa powder (I used hershey’s dark cocoa)

1 egg

1 cup red wine

1 tsp baking powder

¼ cup sweetener (I used stevia)

1 tsp vanilla extract

For the glaze:

1/4 cup red wine

1 tablespoon melted butter

1/4 cup sweetener (less if you like bitter…more if you don’t)

1 tsp vanilla extra

Mix and pour over

Here is the thing.  The wine will not fully cook out.  You won’t get tipsy but as always I don’t recommend using this as a 6am breakfast…unless you really want too.  It would be great with the girls for a brunch and I fully plan on it…just next time I actually have friends over ha.

I tried to get the foodie design just perfect.

I almost forgot to tell you, that I had some friends over for a wino pancake breakfast party who quite enjoyed them.  I really enjoyed these a lot more than I thought I would, although I like wine (still not as much as Guinness LOL).

Questions for you: Are you a wineo? 

Carrot Cake Waffle

I know a few people love carrots in the blogging world…I enjoy them…in my cake.  Or in this case, in my waffle.  I created the carrot cake waffle last year as a way to get more vegetables without sautéing an entire container of kale and being bloated all night. Plus the more orange, the more tan and maybe I can look like a giant dorito by solely eating orange food.

A lot has changed since I posted a carrot cake waffle recipe (including my taste buds) so I thought I would do a bit of updating on the recipe front as well.

2/3 cup flour
1 egg
1 tablespoon oil
1 tsp baking powder
¼ cup Stevia
¾ cup milk

Then add the mix ins:

1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tablespoon brown sugar
¼ cup shredded carrot
¼ cup raisins

Directions: Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients.  Stir and then add the mix ins.

The more I think of carrot cake-the more I think of Spring and warm.  Which if you know me…I can never get enough of seriously. One day I’m going to figure out that way people make recipes interesting posts to blog about…I don’t have any stories related to carrot cake…do you?

Pineapple Upside Down Waffle

Pineapple Upside Down Waffle Recipe

One of my favorite fruits is pineapple.  Before recently, I never thought to incorporate into a waffle form. I’ve had plenty of pineapple upside down cakes, so why couldn’t we try making pineapple upside down waffles? There is no reason…that’s why.

Pineapple Upside Down Waffles

Here is the thing…it doesn’t take a lot to make these.  It doesn’t take a lot of ingredients and truthfully, it doesn’t take a lot of effort either.

Some pineapple…some whipped cream and you are golden.  (or yogurt if you would rather).  Then after thinking, I thought to up the tropical theme and added coconut too. 

Pineapple Upside Down Waffle Ingredients:

½ cup flour

½ cup pineapple chunks

1 egg

1 tablespoon baking powder

¼ cup sweetener (or how much you like)

¼ cup shredded coconut

Water/milk to consistency (or even pineapple juice, almond milk)


Pineapple Upside Down Waffle Recipe Directions:

  1. Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl
  2. Add wet ingredients together and mix in a separate mixing bowl.
  3. Add dry ingredients to the pineapple upside down cake ingredients.
  4. Pour waffle batter into waffle iron and wait until golden brown.
  5. Serve with toppings of choice including more pineapple rings, maple syrup, chocolate chips, or whipped cream.




Pineapple Upside Down Waffles are one of my favorite waffle recipes. Waffle makers make life better right?

Question for you: What is your favorite fruity dessert?

Chunkless Strawberry Pancakes

Sometimes I think of cool fun things that seem weirder when I post them.  Blending a cup of strawberries and making hot pink pancakes could be one of them.  Oh well, they came out really well and strawberries were evenly distributed…so how can you really go wrong?

Bring in: Chunkless strawberry pancakes


I won’t lie, I also enjoy the berryful pancakes that are just normal pancakes with strawberries thrown in but these seemed fun.

½ cup pureed strawberries

½ cup flour

1 egg

1 tablespoon baking powder

½-1 cup milk

Mix and add on the griddle.  I ended up topping mine with vanilla yogurt because I like the flavor addition.   I’m sure you could do this with blueberries, raspberries, boysenberries…whatever.  I think it switches it up instead of having fruity pancakes.  Plus who doesn’t love oddly colored foods?

The second time were more pink!

Question for you: What is the most oddly colored food you have ever eaten?
