  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Food coloring in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple


  1. Mix Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
    • In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and then add them to the dry ingredients along with the milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract. Stir everything together until the batter is smooth.
  2. Color the Batter:
    • Divide the batter evenly into six different bowls.
    • Add 1-2 drops of different food coloring to each bowl (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple). Mix well until each color is vibrant and evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  3. Cook Waffles:
    • Preheat your waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
    • Pour the colored batter onto the hot waffle iron, one color at a time, and cook for about 2 minutes or until the waffles are golden and crisp. You can also create multi-colored waffles by adding dollops of different colors to the waffle iron and using a toothpick to lightly swirl the colors together.
  4. Serve:
    • Keep the cooked waffles warm in a low oven until all the batter is used and the waffles are ready to be served.
    • Present these bright waffles with your favorite syrups, fresh fruits, or a dollop of whipped cream for an extra special breakfast.
