Cake Mix Waffles

We're in the middle of a heat wave here this summer.  We wanted a little baked treat, but because it feels like an oven outside, there's no way I'm turning on my oven inside!  Then I remembered seeing the great idea of making cupcakes using a waffle iron at Random Thoughts of a Supermom ~ what a perfect solution.  We could have a little treat without sweating any more than we had to. 



It was so easy (and yummy).  Here's what we did:

1.  Gather your supplies ~ a waffle iron, cake mix and the ingredients to make the cake. ( I think I might add some chocolate chips to our next batch.)



2.  Heat up your waffle iron and mix the cake mix according the directions.

3.  Pour the cake mix batter onto the waffle iron.  Check your manual for amounts and times.  Mine used about 1/4 cup of batter per waffle and cooked for about 3 minutes.



4.  Put the finished waffles onto a cooling rack to cool, then enjoy.  We ate a couple just plain since we didn't have any frosting on hand, and then made the rest into some yummy Cake and Ice Cream Sandwiches.

  2. Awesome! Really wishing I had a waffle iron right about now. Guess I'll have to go out and buy one so I can make ice cream sandwiches. It's supposed to go up to 100 degrees here in NY today!

    1. You can definitely use a brownie mix. Just Google waffle iron brownies. They are yummy!

  20. Found this on pinterest and had to try it! Made a chocolate cake mix that had pudding in it. Mine only took about a minute or so...I actually put a toothpick to make sure they were done. I didn't want it to be crispy like a waffle. OMG! They were soooo good! Daughter and husband had them with icecream scooped on top! Son and I had it with peanut butter on top! Only made the 4 and put the rest of the mix in the fridge for later! Think this would be fun when you have a gathering of people! Hot waffles topped with icecream! MMMmmM!

  21. Loved this idea, but the waffles were very soft and I think if I want them to hold ice cream in a sandwich, they'd need to be in the freezer for a while. Or I may try to reduce the eggs called for and add a bit more oil than the mix recommends. Warm w ice cream, they were fab.

  22. Do you have to grease the waffle maker? I typically don't have to with regular waffles.
