I’ve previously told you about my deep love of waffles. Well I cheated on them recently ... with a cake I made in my waffle iron. I discovered that my reliable waffle iron could be used to bake cakes. And that was an absolute game changer. I love to bake, but I don’t really want to turn on my oven and force my oven and air conditioner to combat each other in a battle of temperatures. Now I don’t have to do that because I’m just going to make cakes, even fancy cakes, with my waffle iron.
I know it sounds weird, but baking a cake in a waffle iron actually was very effective and made light fluffy layers of cake. No crisp, no crunch, just plenty of nooks and crannies to hold the frosting. I think I’ll be making layer cakes with my waffle iron for the foreseeable future. Want to try my fun kitchen hack?
