Root Beer Float Waffles

These Waffles are by far the most amazing waffles you will ever try! This unique and tasty waffle recipe is one that will leave you with stacks upon stacks of waffles because you won’t want to stop making them! Root beer Waffles are a great way to make a hearty breakfast in minutes that everyone is sure to love. Perfect for brunch and special occasions or just because.

Key Ingredients You Need

Eggs: Eggs hold the dry ingredients together and give the waffles richness. I always recommend using room-temperature eggs.

Granulated Sugar: Even though you don’t want to make your waffles very sweet, you don’t want to skip the sugar. It gives the waffles a hint of sweetness and brings the flavors together perfectly.

Milk: Use whole or 2% milk to add moisture to the recipe and add additional flavor.

Oil: Using Canola or Vegetable Oil will give the recipe a more tender and moist texture. When combined together with eggs it will add an airy and fluffy consistency overall.

Root Beer and Root Beer Flavoring: This will give your waffles a nice and strong flavor and will also provide the recipe with a nice aroma as well.

All-Purpose Flour: All-purpose flour is best to use.  However, if you are using self-rising flour, you would eliminate the baking powder.

Baking Powder: Baking powder makes the waffles rise. This gives that light and fluffy texture you want.

Salt: Everyone always thinks it is weird to put salt in things like waffles or desserts because they aren’t salty foods. Adding salt brings out the flavor. You don’t want to skip this step.

How To Make Root Beer Float Waffles

1. Waffles. Add the eggs, sugar, milk, oil, root beer, and root beer flavoring into a large bowl and combine.

Adding in the root beer.

Add the flour, baking powder, and salt into another bowl and combine. A little at a time, add the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and combine after each addition. (batter may be lumpy, but that’s okay)

Adding in the dry ingredients.

2. Cooking. Heat the Waffle Maker according to the directions. Place 3/4 cup of batter onto the heated waffle maker at a time until all the batter is used. Place butter on the waffles right after they are cooked and plate 2-3 waffles at a time.

Cooking the waffles.

3. Toppings. Drizzle with syrup and top with whipped cream and a cherry. Serve and Enjoy!

How To Store Root Beer Float Waffles?

You will first need to place the waffles on a baking sheet or tray to chill in the freezer until firm. Next, use an airtight container or Ziploc bag to hold the hardened waffles. Freezing the waffles beforehand will reduce the risk of the waffles sticking together.
