Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 20 minutes

Serves: 8 Waffles

These Ube Mochi Waffles are inspired by the mix you can get at Trader Joe’s. Lately there’s a 45 minute line to get into my local Trader Joe’s and the boxes have been selling out everywhere so I was determined to figure out how to make these from scratch instead. It took a few trials, but I’m really happy with these! I use ube jam and ube flavoring in these, so they have a deeper purple color compared to the Trader Joe’s mix – but the texture and flavor are very similar – slightly crisp on the outside and satisfyingly chewy on the inside.

Check your local Vietnamese or Filipino market to find Ube Flavoring (order here) and Ube Jam (order here).

I served the Ube Mochi Waffles with Coconut Whipped Cream (recipe here). If you want the ombre effect, color half of the whipped cream with a few drops of Ube Flavoring and fill the bag as pictured below. I used a Wilton 2D Piping tip (purchase here).
