Cake Mix Waffles Recipe

I always use a cake mix, from cookies to cake, but then my brain challenged me and said, “why not breakfast?” This, my friends, is how these waffles were created – and I’m sad that I haven’t done this earlier!

My boys piled the waffles high, and I didn’t hear a peep from them, meaning they approved of every bite.

Since you need minimal ingredients to make these waffles, you can rest easy knowing that this is a great way to create a memorable weekend breakfast in no time effortlessly.

What are fun topping ideas for waffles?

Waffles are a classic breakfast food, but that doesn’t mean it has to stay boring!

Toppings can bring some variety and excitement to your morning routine.

For example, fresh fruit like strawberries or blueberries can be a great addition – not only does it add flavor, but is a nutritious way to start your day.

Caramelized bananas and apples paired with a dollop of whipped cream also give your waffle an extra dose of sweetness.

If you want something savory, bacon and cheese also make wonderful toppings.

Finally, don’t forget about the syrup – it’s always a must for us waffle fans!

With so many delicious options available, you won’t be stuck in a breakfast rut again.

Can I make waffles without a waffle iron?

Believe it or not, you don’t need a special waffle iron to enjoy those delicious breakfast treats.

With a little effort and some everyday kitchen items, you can still make your very own homemade waffles.

You’ll need an oven-safe skillet with medium heat and the batter ingredients.

Once the skillet is hot enough, spoon in your prepared batter and let it cook for about two minutes before flipping it over for an additional minute of cooking. Voila!

It’s that simple to make waffles without an appliance specially designed for them.

Try experimenting with different batters, like classic Belgian or something more savory, and see which one turns out better – there’s no wrong way to enjoy waffles.
