DELICIOUSLY EASY STRAWBERRIES & CREAM WAFFLES
- 1/2 cup of strawberries
- 2 mint leaves
- 1/2 whip cream
- 2 cups of Mrs. Butterworth’s Pancake Mix
- 1 1/2 cups of milk
- 1/3 cup of vegetable oil or melted butter
- 1 egg
- Preheat your waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
- In a large bowl, combine Mrs. Butterworth’s Pancake Mix, milk, oil (or melted butter), and egg. Stir until blended.
- Lightly grease the waffle iron with a small amount of oil or non-stick cooking spray.
- Pour the batter onto the preheated waffle iron, being careful not to overfill it as the batter will spread when you close the iron.
- Close the waffle iron and cook. It usually takes about 3-5 minutes to cook, but this can vary depending on your specific waffle iron.
- Carefully open the waffle iron and check if the waffle is golden and crisp. If it is, remove the waffle. If it’s not, close the iron and cook for a little longer.
- Repeat the process with the remaining batter.
- Serve your waffles immediately.
- Garnish with sliced strawberries, whip cream and mint.
The best part of these waffles is if you make too many and want to save some for later you can!
- To Store. Store leftover waffles in an airtight storage container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
- To Reheat. You can gently rewarm waffles in the microwave until warmed through.
- To Freeze. I love to do this by placing waffles in an airtight, freezer-safe storage container in the freezer for up to 2.5-3 months max. You will want to allow them to thaw and defrost prior to reheating them – this helps them not be soggy in the center!
