What is red velvet?
Traditionally red velvet was a cake flavor that was a red to red-brown color. The color came from non-Dutched, anthocyanin rich cocoa. Today most recipes call for red food coloring and Dutch cocoa.
What can I use instead of food coloring?
If you prefer to use all natural ingredients, you can opt for beet root powder to give your waffles that red color.
What is mochi?
Mochi is a Japanese steamed rice cake made from mochiko flour.
Where can I find mochiko flour?
Mochiko flour can be found in most grocery stores in the Asian aisle.
Is this gluten-free?
This recipe is gluten-free. Mochiko flour is called glutinous rice flour, but don’t let the name fool you. That term is used to describe the chewy texture, as it is actually gluten-free. Be sure to check the brand of ingredients that you use. Some types of powdered sugar may have a starch that contains gluten and some ingredients may be processed in facilities that process gluten products.
Can you make red velvet waffles ahead of time?
You sure can. You can make the batter and store that in the fridge for a few days until ready to use. Be sure to stir the batter after storing in the refrigerator and the contents may settle.
How to store red velvet waffles?
These waffles taste best fresh, however if you happen to have some leftovers you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.
How to reheat red velvet waffles?
When ready to eat you can opt to reheat in the microwave or toss the waffle back on the waffle iron for a minute or two to reheat.
