Birthday Cake Waffles Using a Cake Mix

Birthday Cake Waffles Using a Cake Mix

I am so excited to share this recipe for Birthday Cake Waffes using a cake mix. How easy is that? Did you know you could do that?

I love this recipe you just use one bowl! These waffles are so easy and simple to make! 🙂

Start heating up your waffle iron and make your cake mix like the package says and when your waffle iron is hot start making waffles.

These waffles are sure to be a big hit with you family. I used Funfetti cake mix for this recipe. You can make this recipe with any type of cake mix. Lemon, or strawberry–there are so many options.


  • Cake Mix…we love to use Funfetti.
  • Eggs 
  • Vegetable Oil 
  • Water or Milk 
  • Vanilla extract
  • Toppingsice cream, chocolate syrup, Maple syrup, ice cream, whipped topping, sprinkles, etc.

How many waffles does this recipe make?

When using a 15.25 oz box of cake mix, you should get 7 or 8 waffles, about 6″ in size. The number of waffles you get will depend on the size of the waffle iron you have.

Pour about 1/2 cup of the waffle batter into the center of the preheated waffle iron. Try not to get the waffle mix too close to the edges or it will leak out that sides.

Close the lid and bake for six minutes or until the light turns green.

You may need to cook them a little longer than other waffles to get them crispy.

Waffles will be good for 2-3 days when stored in an air-tight container.

Reheating Cake Batter Waffles

The next time you need a batch of funfetti cake waffles, simply grab them from the fridge or freezer (no need to thaw) and reheat them in the toaster or toaster oven on the light setting.

Grab your apron and get ready to make some delicious Birthday Cake Waffles.
