We get really excited about holidays at our house. Not just the big ones like Easter and Christmas, but the little ones like Valentine's Day, Mardi Gras, and St. Patrick's Day too. You can bet we're having corned beef and cabbage and shamrock shaped green jello next weekend. Since we love holidays so much, I wanted to do something special for the boys for Valentine's Day, so I made a strawberry waffle cake.
Talk about happy kids! They loved it and it was pretty simple to make. I actually enjoy making waffles so we eat them fairly often...well once or twice a month which is a lot in my book since I like to keep breakfast simple. Here is the recipe I always make.
I actually mashed up some strawberries and added them to the batter, but don't think I really tasted them in the waffles. I doubt I will go to the trouble to do that again since it didn't change the flavor of the waffles, but it's always fun to try new things.
I love the simplicity of this. Waffles, whipped cream, and strawberries layered to make a beautiful cake. I make homemade whipped cream which is super easy if you have a mixer. I put cream and strawberries between each layer, cutting the strawberries thinner for the inner layers so they will stack easier. You will want to serve this treat shortly after assembling to prevent the waffle layers from getting too soft, although it's still good if it has set awhile.
Waffles (my favorite recipe)
Whipped cream (homemade or store bought, honestly homemade is easy and so much better)
Strawberries, washed and sliced
Prepare all ingredients then layer as pictured for a fun sweet treat.
