A hand is dropping colorful sprinkles on top of a cake batter Waffle Sunday.

Summer is the time of birthdays in our house. What better way to celebrate the birthday “person” than to wake up to a special treat?

Now please don’t think I am a terrible mom for making this sugary treat for breakfast. It is summer and my teens sleep super late right now. They usually stumble out of bed early to eat, then they go back to bed. This is the “second breakfast” celebration :-).

(Keep reading below…I made a video to show you how easy these waffles are to make!!)

Gluten-Free Waffles

Waffles are a delicious breakfast treat. You can make gluten free waffles from scratch, adapt a mix to be healthier like this easy waffle hack, or buy them frozen. (The frozen gluten free waffles flatten to make awesome waffle ice cream cones!)

If your crew loves waffles and cake, this is the perfect combination to make everyone happy. I used a wonderful gluten free cake recipe of mine to make the waffle batter for this recipe. (I know I really need to post my vanilla cake recipe….it makes delicious birthday cakes and cupcakes.)

How fun is this with all of the colorful rainbow sprinkles?

A spoon is drizzling hot fudge onto the scoop of ice cream to make a waffle Sunday.

My family insisted we drizzle hot fudge on these waffles to make a gluten free waffle Sunday out of it. Who am I to complain? (Don’t tell my family, but I added almond flour to the waffle cake batter in order to add a little protein to balance things out :-).

Check out how easy it is to make gluten free waffles. I hope this video helps you make these for your family!
