Strawberry Shortcake, or Not
I think I first saw this idea on Pinterest. Cake mix in the waffle iron. Genius! And so many possibilities. I decided to make strawberry shortcake, with yellow cake, strawberry pie filling, and Cool Whip. Simply make the cake mix as directed on the package and cook in the waffle iron. I didn’t pay attention to the cooking time, because my waffle iron beeps when the waffles are done cooking. Then top with the strawberry pie filling and Cool Whip. I got 13 big waffles out of the cake mix.
The kids, reluctant to try something new, opted not to have the pie filling on their cake-waffles. Instead they had chocolate syrup and Cool Whip.
Next time, we might try them with ice cream on top. With all of the flavors of cake mix available and any topping you can think up, the possibilities are endless!
