Instructions

  1. Preheat your waffle iron, make sure you're using a round Belgian waffle maker for these rainbows.
  2. In your stand mixer add the two egg whites and beat to stiff peaks on high.
  3. Remove egg whites carefully to another bowl.
  4. In the stand mixer add the eggs, vanilla, buttermilk and butter until well blended.
  5. Add in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt and combine.
  6. Add batter to six different bowls, the 1/3 of the batter in red, then in decreasing amounts for each color (don't drive yourself crazy here, the colors will merge a bit.
  7. I ended up with about half as much orange as red, half as much yellow as orange, etc etc.
  8. The purple was only about 3 tablespoons of batter by the end.
  9. Fold about the same ratios of the egg white into the batter very carefully.
  10. Add to ziploc piping bags.
  11. Pipe in circles around the waffle iron.
  12. Red on the outside working inward to purple in the order of: Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple.
  13. Keep the colors thinner than you would think you should they'll spread as you're adding them.
  14. Cook them about 75-80% of the time you normally would a waffle, you don't want to lose that gorgeous color by browning them too much.
  15. They'll still be cooked but not be SUPER crispy.
  16. Garnish with whipped cream clouds and rolos as treasure.
  17. Eat salad the rest of the day. ;)
