carrot_cake_wafflesCan you believe Easter is right around the corner? As we happily hop toward spring, we realize rabbits aren’t the only ones keen on carrots – especially when it comes to brunch. Packed with beta carotene, numerous vitamins, and plenty of fiber, this root veggie makes for a very enticing ingredient in some of our favorite dishes. Take for example these crave-worthy Carrot Cake Waffles from our friends at the 1886 Avenue Hotel Bed and Breakfast in Manitou Springs, CO, a beautifully restored and stately Queen Ann designed with guests’ comfort in mind. This cozy retreat features a warm, friendly atmosphere with complimentary beverages, wine or beer in the afternoon, homemade cookies and, of course, a scrumptious breakfast.

Instructions
  1. Heat 4 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium heat until melted.
  2. Continue to cook, swirling pan constantly, until butter is brown and has a faint nutty aroma, 2-4 minutes.
  3. Add spices and continue to cook, stirring constantly, 15 seconds; remove from heat and allow to cool about 30 minutes.
  4. Sift together flour, salt, sugar, and baking soda.
  5. Mix together the buttermilk and the egg yolks.
  6. Stir in the spiced butter and vanilla.
  7. Spray the waffle iron well with non-stick cooking spray and preheat it.
  8. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry.
  9. Beat the egg white in a separate clean bowl with an electric mixer until they hold peaks.
  10. Stir them gently into the batter.
  11. Add pineapple, raisins, walnuts, and carrots. Stir gently to combine.
  12. Spread batter onto the waffle iron and bake until the waffle is done, usually 4 to 5 minutes, depending on your iron.
  13. Spray iron with cooking spray between waffles as needed.
  14. To make Maple Nut Cream Cheese Spread, simply combine cream cheese, maple syrup, walnuts, cinnamon, and nutmeg and mix well.
  15. Serve waffles immediately with cream cheese spread or keep waffles warm for a few minutes in the oven then spread with cream cheese between the waffles.
  16. Pour maple syrup over the top and top with a dollop of whipped cream.
  17. Serve.
