Chocolate Strawberry Waffle Cake

Chocolate Strawberry Waffle Cake

Book group at my house last night out on the patio to discuss “All the Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doerr, the 2015 Pulitzer Prize winner for fiction, not a bad read you should check it out but I digress, from the food!  Decided to make this little piece of heaven which was outstanding!  Bob had a piece and texted me saying that it is one of his new all time favorite cakes!  It was pretty dreamy and it makes 2 cakes!  It’s a Six Sisters’ Stuff recipe, so you should try both the book and the cake, but then again I’m not the boss of you but if I was . . .

waffles:

1 chocolate cake mix plus ingredients to make cake

filling:

2 cups whipping cream

4 tablespoons instant vanilla pudding mix

4 tablespoons powdered sugar

1 1/2 cups diced strawberries

frosting:

3 tablespoons butter, melted

1/3 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon cocoa

1 1/3 cups powdered sugar

1 tablespoon milk

garnish:

1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries

1 Hershey’s chocolate bar

1  Prepare cake mix as directed on box.  Heat Belgian waffle iron and spray with cooking spray.  Use generous 1/2 cup batter to make 6 waffles.  (I used a 1/2 cup and came up with 8 not quite full waffles so make sure it’s a full 1/2 cup.)  Remove and let cool.

2  Beat together whipping cream, pudding mix and powdered sugar until thick then fold in diced strawberries.

3  Place 1 waffle on serving platter, top with whipped cream and repeat 2 more times then assemble the second cake in the same way.

4  Make frosting by beating together all frosting ingredients adding more sugar or milk to get desired consistency.

5  Carefully spread half of the frosting on each cake.  Top with sliced strawberries and grated chocolate.
