Michelle from Michelle's Party Plan-It is here with a creative way to bake a birthday cake... using a waffle iron!
Looking for a fast and easy way to bake a birthday cake without using an oven? How about using a waffle iron? It’s hot here in Southern California and the last thing I want to do is fire up the oven to bake.
I recently baked some ready-made cinnamon rolls in my waffle iron and have since been on the hunt to find other items I can bake with my waffle iron. One of my friends shared how she baked a cake with a waffle iron and I knew I had to try it out for myself.
- 1 box cake mix of your choice (plus ingredients as directed on the box)
- Waffle iron
- Non-stick cooking spray
Prepare the cake mix as directed on the box and turn on your waffle iron.
Spray the top and bottom waffle iron plates with non-stick cooking spray. Pour the cake batter in the center of the waffle iron. The amount of cake batter will depend on the size and shape of your waffle iron. Just like when you make waffles, it may take some trial and error to determine the right amount of batter.
Cook until steaming stops, then carefully remove the cake waffle.
Once cooled, spread a thin layer of icing on top of the cake waffle and sprinkle some sprinkles on the edges. Stack another cake waffle and repeat.
- Use whipped cream instead of icing and add fresh fruit.
- Serve vanilla ice cream between two layers to make ice cream sandwiches.
- Serve warm with whipped cream and fudge sauce.
This looks crazy delicious, Michelle, and so cool!
