These vanilla cake mix waffles are the ultimate easy treat. Served with a dollop of ice cream, fresh berries and drizzled with syrup they are any dessert lover’s dream.
So here’s something you might not know about me, I love a good boxed cake mix. Yes, of course I bake cakes from scratch but there are just times when you need the ease and efficiency of a good cake mix. Not to mention that they are fool-proof and can make anyone feel like a master baker.
Most of the time I jazz up boxed/ pre-pack cake mixes with fresh fruit and my own buttercream but today is not that day. Today we are not even baking a cake with our cake mix. Today we are making waffles that are so good, I dare you to stop at only one.
When the team from Golden Cloud asked me to come up with a spectacular recipe using their cake or muffin mix range I accepted without hesitation. Because I knew exactly what I was going to make. I’ve been wanting to make cake mix waffles for the longest time and guys, it was worth the wait.
Golden Cloud’s vanilla cake mix resulted in light, fluffy, perfectly golden waffles that just begged to be topped with a dollop of ice cream. That is the joy of their ready-to-mix range. It is so crazy versatile and definitely not only suited to its intended purpose. Check out their Facebook page for more inspiration: https://www.facebook.com/GoldenCloudFlourSA/

Waffle ice cream sandwiches
I absolutely love brownies! I will use the cake mix (adjusted with a bit more butter, oil etc to get the brownie effect) to make blondies! With added white chocolate pieces and macadamian nuts, and maybe some cranberries, to cut the sweetnes!
Red velvet waffles with a cream cheese/cream sort of concoction…I’ll figure it out when the time comes. lol. Though now I have to go and buy a waffle maker!
PS These pics are not helping my waffle craving in the least!!! Stunning. xxx
Delicious! That waffle maker will be totally worth it. 🙂

Seriously delicious – these waffles sound like such a wonderful treat!
Thanks so much Laura!
I think I wil experiment with a s’mores concoction! Chocolate cake waffle to start!
That sounds delicious!
I think I would try some cake mix baked doughnuts, made fancy with a rich chocolate ganache and sprinkles 🙂 Holding thumbs! (Shared on Facebook and Twitter – @MrsJulieLJones)
I often use their cappuccino muffin mix to make tiramisu-inspired muffins topped with a white chocolate mascarpone icing. Yum!
That sounds delicious!
These look so delicious. And so easy! Love it.

So easy and delicious Alida! Perfect sandwiched with some ice cream for summer too!
Oh most definitely! Yum!
I recently made the Golden Cloud Orange and Ginger cake, and it was delicious. Next time I will use this mix to make individual upside-down orange cakes with a glacé ginger and orange syrup.
YUM! That sounds awesome!
