Start Valentine’s Day with a delicious, fluffy, and sweet Strawberry Shortcake Waffle. A Belgium waffle is made with a boxed strawberry cake mix and pureed, fresh strawberries for maximum berry flavor. Then it’s topped with strawberry ice cream, strawberry syrup, whipped cream, and a dusting of powdered sugar. If you want decadence for your morning, then this is just what you’ve been waiting for!
For the waffles:
- 1 box (15.25 ounce) box strawberry cake mix
- 3 large eggs
- ¼ cup buttermilk
- 1 cup water
- ½ cup pureed fresh strawberries
For the shortcake:
- Powdered sugar, for dusting
- Strawberry pancake syrup or dessert syrup
- 1-quart strawberry ice cream
- Refrigerated, canned whipped cream
- Fresh strawberries, sliced
- Fresh mint sprigs, as garnish
In a large bowl, whisk together the cake mix, eggs, buttermilk, water, and strawberry puree until well combined.
Preheat your waffle iron and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
Pour ½ cup of the batter onto the center of the iron. Close and allow the waffle to cook until your iron determines they are done. The waffle should be fluffy with golden and crispy edges.
Remove the waffle from the iron and place it on a baking sheet.
Place the waffles in a 200-degree oven to keep them warm while you make the remaining waffles.
To make the shortcakes, place one waffle on a plate.
Dust the waffle lightly with powdered sugar.
Drizzle the strawberry syrup over the waffle.
Place a scoop of ice cream in the center of the waffle.
Arrange sliced strawberries around the waffle and top with dollops of whipped cream.
Top with a sprig of fresh mint.
