If you’re a red velvet cake fan, you’re going to LOVE these waffles.
A couple weeks ago, Natalie was having a sleepover and we wanted to do something fun for dessert. We’ve done Brownie Waffles, Funfetti Cake Waffles, Chocolate Chip Cookie Waffles, Cupcake Waffles, Oreo Cookie Waffles, Smores Waffles, and several other kinds of waffles — it’s sort of what we’re known for. But we hadn’t tried a Red Velvet Cake Waffle…
Strawberry Red Velvet Cake Waffles
Making these Strawberry Red Velvet Cake Waffles was incredibly easy and we didn’t need any special ingredients. Rather than follow a recipe or create a recipe for the red velvet cake, we chose easy and began with a box of Betty Crocker Delights Super Moist Red Velvet Cake Mix.
The semi-homemade approach to cooking is totally my jam. I love using some premade or quick-start items picked up from the grocery store to speed up my cooking or make a recipe easier. Plus, when we’re hungry (and nearing hangry), I don’t mess around.
Making The Waffles
Making Strawberry Red Velvet Cake Waffles is fast. We simply prepared the red velvet cake mix according to the instructions on the box while preheating the waffle iron. When the waffle iron was ready, we poured about a cup of the cake batter into the waffle iron wells, and while the waffles were cooking, I cut up a few strawberries and make the frosting drizzle.
The cream cheese frosting drizzle absolutely made the waffle dish! It was sooooo yummy!
To make the frosting drizzle for the waffles, we started with a container of cream cheese frosting we picked up at the satore. I scooped a few big spoonfuls out into a measuring cup and then thinned it out by adding almond milk. I added a little almond milk at a time, stirring it into the frosting, until it reached the pourable consistency I wanted.
Assembling the Strawberry Red Velvet Cake Waffles
When my waffle iron beeped to signal the waffles were done cooking, I transferred the waffles to a cooking rack to cool down for about five minutes. We then plated the waffles, topped them with the strawberries, and then poured the cream cheese frosting drizzle over the top.
From the initial openeing of the cake mix box, to the serving of the waffles, it was no more than 10 minutes. This semi-homemade recipe is easy, fast, and totally delicious.
Yum! Yum! Yum!
Every bite of these Strawberry Red Velvet Waffles was super yummy. The cake stayed moist and fluffy even when cooked in the waffle iron, and the strawberries with the cream cheese frosting were heaven. Seriously, if you’re a red velvet cake lover, or really, any type of cake lover, you’ve got to try making red velvet cake waffles ASAP!
