Unicorn poop birthday cake waffles - The Hungry Mum

Happy double digits to the newly mined Miss10! My youngest celebrated her birthday recently and in keeping with her love of all things unicorn I decided to make her a birthday breakfast featuring unicorns. Don’t worry – as a vegetarian she didn’t eat a unicorn 😉 But I did want to incorporate some of the magical whimsy that is synonymous with unicorns. Voila – unicorn poop waffles!

I knew I wanted to make her waffles for her bday breakfast and I knowing that sprinkles are a girls best friend I created the somewhat vile-named unicorn poop waffles.

These waffles also fall under the category of birthday cake waffles and are perfect to serve to a loved one of their birthday, even if they have no affiliation whatsoever with unicorns.

I love waffles as they aren’t overly sweet – addition of sprinkles notwithstanding – as we only eat them occasionally they feel like a treat.

Miss 10 adored her birthday cake waffles and even took left-overs to school to have for recess 🙂

Make sure you use the long sprinkles, rather than the round style ones for maximum sprinkle impact. I served these with extra sprinkles on top and extra crushed berries, as well as maple syrup and whipped cream.

GATHER:

2 cups plain flour

2 tablespoons caster sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/3 cup raspberries, lightly crushed with a fork

½ cup coloured sprinkles

2 cups milk

2 eggs

50 grams butter, melted

maple syrup, whipped cream – to serve

LET’S GET TO IT:

Sift together the flour, baking powder and sugar in a large bowl and make a well.

Beat milk, eggs and melted butter together in a jug then pour into the well and stir with a silver spoon until everything comes together. ( you can do this the night before if you wish – I did to save time in the morning. Just cover with plastic wrap and leave on the fridge)

Stir in the sprinkles and berries, then cook waffles according to manufacturer’s instructions.

Serve with extra sprinkles on top.

    I adore the name ‘Unicorn Poop Waffles’ ~ (I couldn’t resist typing that.) 🙂
    Happy Birthday to Miss 10. I’m sure there are a lot of very envious little girls at her school…

    Unicorn and poop are two words I wouldn’t have expected to appear together in a recipe – but they work Hungry Mum – your little one is a very lucky girl indeed!

    That’s an interesting title for a recipe- I suppose the name just ‘says it as it is’- named after what someone envisages as the poop of a Unicorn? I suppose that the trick lies in getting the shape just right with the waffles- looks like it requires some skill to get that ‘kite-shaped’ waffle just right! What a fun recipe and it seems like just yesterday that you were referring to your daughter as ‘Miss7.’

      Yes, I cannot believe that Miss7 is now double digits! Unicorn poop anything is the hot trend for the under 12 set – you would not believe the unicorn poop world of stuff out there!

    Hehe that is very cute and fun! Like fairy bread waffles 😀

      Thanks! You would not believe how many sprinkles we go through in this house! Seriously, I need to find a place where I can buy them kilo bags 😉
