  • 1 box cake mix

  1. Preheat your waffle iron according to manufacturer’s directions.
  2. In a large bowl prepare the cake mix according to package directions.
  3. Pour the batter into your waffle iron according to manufacturer’s directions.

  • I have found that the cake batter waffles sometimes need a longer cooking time than traditional waffles. Don’t be afraid to cook it a little longer than you normally do.
  • I have had luck using just about every cake mix under the sun, like Funfetti, Red Velvet, Lemon, Devil’s Food, and more.
  • Be sure your waffle iron is hot and sprayed well with cooking spray before adding the cake batter to ensure the waffles don’t stick.
