Shortcut to deliciousness, quick and easy Strawberry Waffle Cakes, layered with fresh strawberries, coconut cream and chocolate. A new way to use your box cake mix.
There are times when I crave something sweet like a slice of cake, but I’m not in the mood to take out all that’s needed to bake that cake. I was watching someone on Snapchat and she was experimenting with foods she could cook in a waffle iron, like cookie dough. That got me to thinking, why not just use my waffle maker to make that sweet treat.
I took a shortcut and started with a box cake mix to make things easier. I added some baking powder, milk, sparkling water, oil and vanilla. No eggs are required, yes that;s right no eggs required.
I topped my waffle cakes with fresh sliced strawberries, whipped coconut cream and chocolate. My craving for something sweet was definitely satisfied, and I didn’t have to wait for a cake to bake.
