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.


  1. This is great! My husband introduced my kids and I to the joy of delicious waffle and ice cream sandwiches. They are to DIE for! This recipe will make them even better (I never thought it would be possible!). Thanks for sharing!!

  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!

  3. These look so good!! I am going to give them a try.

  4. I bet chocolate is yummy! I might try that next time and add in a few chocolate chips just for fun! We made cupcake waffles this week with Funfetti cake mix:) http://the-wilson-world.blogspot.com/2011/07/cupcake-waffles.html

  5. This is a great recipe! My daughter will really like them

  6. Man, I wish I had a waffle iron! Great idea! I'm a now a follower!


  7. That's awesome. I live in the CA desert and I don't dare turn on my oven so this is a great one for me. Thanks...

  12. I just got a waffle iron! I am so trying this tomorrow! :D

  13. what a fabulous idea! My kids would absolutely LOVE this, not to mention the fact that I'd get to eat them too....

    So glad I saw this- I'm visiting from Tip Junkie.

  14. Oh this looks so good! I love it! I am going to have to try this because the heat stinks! Great idea!

  15. This is genious! I never thought about using a waffle iron. And I love ice cream sandwiches. If you have a moment, I would love for you to share this project on my Inspiration Board {link party}.
    Thank you!

  16. That's a fantastic idea to use my Waffle's machine!!
    I'll try it!!

  17. Who would have thunk! Great idea!

  18. This looks amazing! Thanks for sharing :)

  19. I love this simple idea! Now I can't help but wonder if I could use a brownie mix! Yummo!

    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.

  23. I just got a waffle iron so I will definitely be trying this! Thanks for sharing! ~M

  24. Going to make. Have a very old waffel machine, already broke in.making ice cream sand. Anf freeze them to have on hand just like from store. But better.there went all 60lbs I lost over 2012. Thought I would keep off not with this secret.
