Do These Waffles Have Actual Carrots In Them
These carrot cake waffles do have grated carrots in the batter. I find using a regular grater to finely shred your carrots works great.
It really adds incredible texture and flavor to the waffles. Plus we couldn’t call these waffles what they are without it.
Best Way To Prevent Waffles From Getting Soggy
You have a few options here. All work really well at preventing your waffles from going soggy!
- Place on a cooling rack, in one single layer.
- Turn oven on to 200 degrees and lay waffles directly on the middle oven rack.
- Place waffles on a cookie sheet and toss in oven at 200 degrees.
All of these ideas will keep your waffles warm as you finish cooking up the rest of the batter. Them too with butter, syrup or your favorite toppings.
Toppings for Carrot Cake Waffles

Can You Freeze Waffles
Absolutely! Freezing these carrot waffles is easy. Just cook waffles and then lay them out on a cooling rack. Allow them to cool off then lay out on a cookie sheet.
Toss the waffles in the freezer on the pan for a flash freeze for 15-30 minutes. Then place waffles in a freezer bag.
You can freeze waffles for up to 3 months.
Best Way To Reheat Frozen Homemade Waffles
- Place waffles in a 250-degree oven for 10 minutes. This keeps Waffles crispy.
- Opt to pop in the toaster for a nice toasty texture.
- You can microwave but it will change the flavor a bit.
You have many options to do. I tend to do the oven for the best texture!
Belgian Carrot Cake Waffles
These are Belgian carrot cake waffles. The egg whites help to make these waffles insanely light and fluffy.
If you have a deep dish waffle iron, even better for thicker waffles! I used a hand mixer to whip up the egg whites.
