One word: WAFFLES. Two words: CAKE MIX. The best word ever: CHOCOLATE! Yep, we’re giving our ordinary toaster oven waffles this Saturday off and dusting off the waffle maker to make Chocolate Cake Mix Waffles with homemade butter cream frosting. They’re yummy enough to have for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
1 box of Devil’s Food cake mix, plus ingredients on the back of the box
1 Heat waffle maker. Spray with non-stick spray.
2 Make cake batter as directed on box, using water, oil and eggs.
3 For each waffle, pour batter onto center of the hot waffle maker. Close lid of waffle maker. Bake 3 to 5 minutes or until steaming stops. Carefully remove waffle.
4 Serve waffles warm with buttercream frosting and your choice of toppings.
Homemade Buttercream Frosting
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 to 2 tablespoons almond milk
1 In medium bowl, mix powdered sugar and butter with spoon or electric mixer on low speed. Stir in vanilla and 1 tablespoon of the almond milk.
2 Gradually beat in just enough remaining almond milk to make frosting smooth and spreadable. If frosting is too thick, beat in more milk, a few drops at a time. If frosting becomes too thin, beat in a small amount of powdered sugar.
