Whoever said that cake mix is only for making cakes has obviously never had a cake mix waffle. Cake batter is quite versatile, requiring nothing more than a mold to hold it in place and a heat source to activate the rising agents within the mix. If you have a waffle maker, box of cake mix and the ingredients to prepare the batter, you have the makings for a morning meal or anytime dessert.

Step 1

Preheat your waffle maker so it is ready to go as soon as the cake mix is ready.

Step 2

Spray the waffle grid with cooking spray to ensure that the cake mix does not stick to the surface.

Step 3

Prepare the cake mix as instructed on the packaging label. Recipes typically require you to mix eggs, water and vegetable oil with the cake mix in a large bowl.

Step 4

Remove a ladle full of cake mix from the bowl and pour just enough onto the waffle grid to cover the peaks and valleys.

Step 5

Close the top of the waffle maker and wait for the steaming and sizzling to stop. As soon as the waffle maker turns quiet, cooking is done and you can open it up.

Step 6

Remove the cake mix waffle from the waffle maker by sliding a plastic spatula underneath and lifting up.

Step 7

Lay the cake mix waffle on a plate and close the waffle maker to maintain heat, opening once you are ready to fill it with cake batter once again.
