Cake Batter Waffles are a fun, easy dessert to make with the kids. It allows you to turn a simple cake mix into a fun creative time in the kitchen. When I was a little girl my grandmother liked to make us waffles and ice cream, so I got to thinking why not make the waffles with cake batter?
The best part is that you can customize them and use any flavor batter that you like and top them with endless toppings. They are perfect for a night when the kids have friends sleep over and you want a fun dessert. I used Betty Crocker Chocolate Cake Mix and they were super yummy, but you can certainly use other flavors. Give it a try and let me know how you like it.
