These super fun waffles—soft on the inside, crisp on the outside—taste just like cake batter! They are quick to whip up anytime but would make birthday mornings feel even more special. —Andrea Fetting, Franklin, Wisconsin

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (about 5 ounces) confetti cake mix or flavor of choice
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons rainbow sprinkles, optional
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1-3/4 cups 2% milk
  • 3/4 to 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • CREAM CHEESE FROSTING:
  • 4 ounces softened cream cheese or reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 to 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 to 3 tablespoons 2% milk

Directions

Preheat oven to 300°. Combine the first five ingredients and, if desired, rainbow sprinkles. In another bowl, whisk eggs, milk, yogurt and extracts. Add yogurt mixture to flour mixture; mix until smooth.
Preheat waffle maker coated with cooking spray. Bake waffles according to manufacturer’s directions until golden brown. Transfer cooked waffles to oven until ready to serve.
For frosting, beat cream cheese and butter on high until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, until smooth. Beat in vanilla. Add enough milk to reach desired consistency. Spread over warm waffles. For a cake-like look, cut waffles into fourths and stack them; decorate with birthday candles. Yield: 6 waffles.
