I had my doubts about raspberry cheesecake waffles. I thought it would be next to impossible to get the cream cheese to stay inside the waffle as it baked. But it sure did, and it was so good.
It’s a little challenging to get everything on the hot plates of your waffle maker quickly, but the result is worth the trouble. The trick is to put slightly less than half the usual batter into each section (for ours, that means a bit less than 1/4 cup of batter per section), then drop glops of the cream cheese frosting on it, and then cover it with more batter. You’ll worry that the bottoms of your waffles will burn, but they won’t.
These waffles turn out crispy on the outside, and cream cheesy on the inside. top with whipped cream if you’d like, but I think they’re enough on their own.
