Strawberry Shortcake Waffles

Life is filled with beautiful reasons to celebrate. Strawberry Shortcake Waffles with Maple Whipped Cream can make any morning one of them.

Strawberry Shortcake Waffles with Maple Whipped Cream

No need to draft a guest list, send out invitations, or stress over all of the impossibly perfect Pinterest ideas that make your thoughtfully planned soiree look like a low-budget PTA trivia night. Instead, throw some waffles on the iron, layer them with fresh juicy strawberries, and smother the whole shebang in fluffy maple whipped cream. This is a Strawberry Shortcake Waffle breakfast party, it takes less than half an hour to put together, and you can attend in your pajamas. Now that’s festive.

These Strawberry Shortcake Waffles are also my way of celebrating a small milestone in my little corner of the internet: my blogiversary! For three years, I’ve been filling the interwebs with all manners of eats and nonsense, a hobby I began on a whim. If you had told the girl who first snapped a hideous picture of enchiladas on her flip phone then hit “publish” that, three years later, her little “hobby” would have exploded into her passion and career, she probably would have flung a scoop of guacamole at you and laughed.

Actually, that’s not true—she would have flung sour cream. No sense wasting good guac.

In all seriousness, when I look back on these three years, what touches me most isn’t that I am still here, babbling away behind the screen—it’s that you are on the other side, listening. I am still blown away every day when I hear from you that you made one of my recipes, sometimes within hours of them being published. Knowing that your toddler will eat her veggies if they’re baked into my Healthy Chicken Broccoli Rice Casserole, that my Pesto Quiche was a hit with your friends at brunch, that your husband had no idea this comforting Cheesy Mexican Chicken Quinoa Casserole was actually good for him keeps me motivated on the mornings when I’d rather sit in my sweats and watch the TODAY show, than brush my teeth and spend those hours at my stove. You make it worth it every time. Thank you.

You’ve supported, celebrated, and grieved with me. From Ben’s graduation, to sharing about the loss of my Dad, to the purchase of our first home, anytime I have shared something that touches me to the core, you have showered me with support. Thank you.

You also put up with my antics, over application of alliteration, and outrageous analogies on a tri-weekly basis. Thank you. Truly, you deserve a medal, a hug, and most importantly, an entire stack of Strawberry Shortcake Waffles with extra Maple Whipped Cream.

Strawberry Waffles with Maple Whipped Cream

This dreamy breakfast is inspired one of my all-time favorite summer foods, strawberry shortcake. For the “cake,” I swapped golden buttermilk waffles, made with Bob’s Red Mill Buttermilk Pancake and Waffle Mix. I love that it’s 100% whole grain, made from wholesome ingredients, and adheres to the strictest of waffle standards: lightly crispy on the outside, golden and fluffy on the inside. Also, because it is so simple to make, I can focus on chugging my coffee, instead of fussing with too many ingredients first thing in the AM.

Buttermilk Strawberry Waffles

To go from waffle to strawberry shortcake waffle, add two simple but powerful ingredients: strawberries and whipped cream, a combination likely invented by angels. I gave the homemade whipped cream a special breakfast twist by sweetening it lightly with maple syrup. It’s positively lovely and just the sort of decadence I want on a weekend morning. This is a celebration, remember?

Maple whipped cream. Perfect for topping ice cream or strawberry waffles!

To further the festivities and to express my gratitude in a teeny, tiny way to all of you, I’m teaming up with Bob’s Red Mill, a company I love and have worked with since my blog’s earliest days, to giveaway a full set of pancake and waffle mixes. I’ve tried and love every single one of these whole grain breakfast beauties, and I hope that you do too!

Strawberry Shortcake Waffles

Yield: 4 waffles (can easily be halved or doubled)
Prep Time:
20 mins
Cook Time:
10 mins
Total Time:
30 mins
Fluffy buttermilk waffles layered with fresh strawberries and maple whipped cream.


For the Strawberry Waffles:

  • 16 ounces fresh strawberries
  • 2 cups Bob's Red Mill Buttermilk Pancake and Waffle Mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup canola oil, — light olive oil, or melted and cooled coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 cups cold milk

For the Maple Whipped Cream:

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup


  1. Preheat your waffle iron. Cut the tops off of the strawberries, slice, and set aside. If you like, preheat the oven to 200 degrees F to keep the waffles warm between batches.
  2. Place the 2 cups mix in the bottom of a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl or large measuring cup, whisk together the eggs, oil, and milk. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, then add the wet ingredients all at once. With a fork, gently stir to combine, being careful not to overmix. The batter will be slightly lumpy. Cook the waffles according to your waffle iron's instructions. If desired, place the waffles on a baking sheet and keep warm in the preheated oven until you are ready to serve.
  3. With an electric mixer, whip the cream on medium high speed until it starts to thicken. Add the maple syrup, then continue mixing on high until very fluffy and still peaks form.
  4. To serve, slice the waffles into halves or quarters, then layer with the strawberries and maple whipped cream. Top with additional strawberries and more whipped cream (really, you can't have enough of the maple whipped cream here). Enjoy immediately.

  1. Congrats on 3 years! Strawberry shortcake is one of my favorites — I have very found childhood memories of it! I love this version with perfect waffles. I normally just go with butter and syrup, peanut butter and syrup if I’m feeling fancy . But my absolute favorite way I’ve ever had a waffle is as a grilled cheese at a waffle restaurant in Oklahoma, mmm.

  2. I like to top my pancakes with a mixture of greek yogurt and either peanut butter or almond butter…sounds strange but I swear it’s delicious and it a protein bonus to boot!

  3. Congrats!
    Pure maple syrup, warmed and served in a little cow pitcher 

  4. Congrats! I enjoy your blog. And also enjoy my waffles/pancakes topped with blueberries and a tiny bit of maple syrup.

  5. i LOVE peanut butter and maple syrup on my pancakes, but i prefer fruit on my waffles.  not sure why! :)

  11. I’m a waffle & pancake FIEND! In fact my last few posts were Strawberry Rhubarb Shortcake Waffles and Multigrain Pancakes with Strawberry Lemon Syrup – — so clearly I love this post :) And big fan of Bob’s Red Mill too but having tried their mixes yet.

    And as for the WAFFLES? Genius! I’m all about the strawberries right now (high-fives for SUMMER) and can’t wait to try these. Topping waffles with any kind of berry is the only way to go! CONGRATS again!

  14. My favorite pancake topping would be real maple syrup … or a smear of salted peanut butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

  15. Congrats to you, Erin! A simple topping of cinnamon sugar on my waffle pleases me to no end!

  28. I sometimes like to put a little cinnamon and sugar, along with maple syrup

  30. Happy Blogiversary Erin! So sweet of you to give away presents on this day – you should be getting them! :)
    My favorite waffle pancake topping is whipped cream – I am lactose intolerant and have tried coconut whipped cream and will stick to that – but REAL whipped cream hands down takes the cake! :)

  31. Happy Blogiversary!!! Those waffles sound and look amazing!! I don’t have a waffle iron, but make pancakes fairly often, and my favorite way of topping is a little maple syrup and some chopped nuts, and usually some berries (love strawberries too!) on the side (or on the top)

  32. I can’t believe it’s been 3 years already!  I love my pancakes with tuna fish cooked into the batter, then covered with sour cream or yogurt.  

  33. Congratulations! I’m not a big fan of breakfast (I eat my yogurt and fruit and get on with the day), but I do like waffles every now and again. My favorite topping? Fresh NY maple syrup. Barring that, strawberries!

  34. My favorite toppings are classic old school real butter and real maple syrup.

  35. Congratulations! I love butter and syrup on my waffles….PB doesn’t hurt, either!

  36. I like to top my waffles with honey and whatever fruit is in season – YUM!

  37. Cooked on a campsite griddle.  A bit of butter, three thin slices banana, a splash of Grand Marnier, pancake batter to cover.  Now that’s livin’!

  47. Happy blog anniversary girl!! U know I love your blog and just how amazing your recipes and posts are!! This is a great way to start any dawn…I’ll take shortcake for any meal!

  48. Strawberries and whipped cream are my favorite waffle topping.  If I’m in the mood for something on the salty side, you can’t go wrong with bacon and maple syrup.  I used to waitress at a restaurant that put the bacon inside the waffles and it was delish!

  49. These waffles look dreamy – and maple whipped cream?! Yes, please! Congrats on hitting the three-year mark! I only started reading last year, but have thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. We’re quite like-minded when it comes to guacamole…my first thought was “No, why throw guacamole?!” And then I read the next line and laughed.

  50. Butter, maple syrup, and pecans! Congratulations to you on 3 years.  I look forward to your posts!

  57. Shazia McGeehan Reply

  83.

    Congratulations on 3 years!  I have certainly enjoyed the time I’ve been reading your blog and making your recipes.  Here’s wishing you as many more good years as you desire!

  106. Happy 3 year to my favorite blogger!! Not just saying that either. I’ve said before how I enjoy your writing and recipes! 

    I had to pause my comment so I could read the post about your pancakes and tribute to your father. I missed that one. I missed a lot last year actually as it was around that time of your post that my mom was losing her battle with cancer. It was a wonderful, loving post. And, I, too, am grateful for all the wonderful memories of my mom as you with your father. Every day.

    I love waffles. Drenched in just butter and syrup for breakfast or topped with berries (strawberries/blueberries) and cream. Then, it becomes a delicious dessert. Or, chicken and waffles to become a dinner entree. Waffles are so versatile.  Yum!

    • Hi Marsha, I am so touched by this comment and your kind words. I’m so sorry about the loss of your mom, and I’m happy to hear you speak of her memories. I am sure she was an incredible and lovely person and is with you every day.
      On the topic of waffles, I have just started eating chicken and waffles, and now I’m wondering where they have been all my life! Way to incorporate them for every meal :)

    Looks absolutely delicious! I tend to just put whipped cream on top of my pancakes and waffles. It’s what goes IN the pancakes that makes them particularly amazing–I recently added some sliced almonds to my pancakes and they tasted terrific (who knew?)!

  121. Alas, I guess that I am not that adventurous.  I still like to slather my pancakes or waffles with butter and syrup.

My favorite waffle topping is strawberries that have been sliced and lightly sugared to bring out the moisture, then set in the refrigerator over night.  Because most maple and other syrups make my tummy hurt I top my waffles with chilled sliced strawberries and  the strawberry syrup that is pulled from the fresh berries. Yummm.

  126. Happy Blogiversary! You have an amazing blog and I really hope you’ll keep blogging for a lot more years! :)
    – Love, Anna!

  127. Love to top ’em with bananas fried up in butter, brown sugar, and rum!

  128. Tupelo honey is all my pancakes need.thanks so much for sharing.

    So, I get a bottle of blueberry dessert wine from a favorite vineyard in NC (I’ve done this before!) and this time of year in VA there are awesome fresh blueberries at the farmer’s co-op. Then I reduce the wine with a bit of natural almond flavor and blueberries galore – you could put this stuff on top of anything!

  134. Congratulations on your anniversary! I love topping my waffles with lots of butter and maple syrup. I’m a traditionalist. 

  135. Fresh fruit for sure!!!  YUM!  These make me want to do breakfast for dinner!

  144. Yum these strawberry shortcake waffles have me nearly drooling on my keyboard! My family and I are extreme waffle lovers. Pancakes too. I’m always on the hunt for new recipes (definitely going to make this one because they’d love it!) so I’ve tried many toppings, but nothing is quite like strawberries on waffles or any type of fresh fruit. With the sweetness of the fruit you don’t really need much or any syrup!

    But when fresh fruit is around, I like to add that to the mix.

  157. Happy blogiversary! As always, love your pics. As for waffles, I prefer fruit and whipped cream (real, not aerosol, of course); whereas, the rest of the family prefers syrup, plain and simple. We usually compromise, and I make blueberry waffle batter, then we all get fruit :)

  205. Erin, we had these for breakfast this morning.  I use Bob’s Red Mill products all the time!  I loved the nutritional value these waffles offered with fruit, whole grain, fiber, and so much protein!  And they were delicious!  I added to this recipe just for personal tastes of my family cinnamon, vanilla, Bob’s Red Mill  Chia Seed (for more fiber and nutrition without altering taste), and honey.  I placed a little honey within so there would be no need to drown them in maple syrup which I am very guilty of doing. :-)  Thank you for the above pictures of various Red Mill products.  I had no idea there was a high fiber pancake/waffle mix and had always just bought the regular one.  I’m excited to try the high fiber one. Thank you for posting such a yummy recipe that I feel good about serving to my family.

    • Sheila, so excited to hear that you enjoyed these waffles! Your additions sound scrumptious—I’m going to add cinnamon myself next time. I hope you enjoy the other mixes too. The 10 grain is another one of my personal favorites!
