How to Make Strawberry Shortcake Waffles

This dreamy breakfast is inspired by one of my all-time favorite summer foods: strawberry shortcake. Made with my favorite Whole Wheat Waffles recipe as our “cake”, everything is mixed right in your blender for easy prep and clean-up.

They’re easy, elegant, and oh-so-delicious.


Ingredients

  • Whole Wheat Waffles. My favorite way to make this recipe is with my go-to Blender Whole Wheat Waffles that are airy on the inside and crisp on the outside. Made with just a few simple ingredients, they keep this impressive breakfast easy and accesible.
  • Strawberries. Ripe, juicy, and packed with vitamin C and antioxidants, strawberries and waffles are a match made in heaven.
  • Whipping Cream. You can’t have a shortcake-inspired waffle feast without freshly made whipped cream.
  • Maple Syrup. I love how just a dash of maple syrup mixed into whipped cream (like in my similarly festive Strawberry Crepes) elevates the this fluffy topping to a whole new level.

Directions

  1. Prepare your waffles according to the recipe.
  2. Meanwhile, whip the cream to stiff peaks and stir in the maple syrup.
  3. Slice the strawberries.
  4. While the waffles are still warm, cut into halves or quarters and layer with plenty of sliced strawberries and (EXTRA) whipped cream. ENJOY!

Storage Tips

  • To Store. Store leftover waffles in an airtight storage container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  • To Reheat. Gently rewarm waffles in the microwave until warmed through.
  • To Freeze. Place waffles in an airtight freezer-safe storage container in the freezer for up to 3 months. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating.

Fluffy whole wheat waffles layered with maple whipped cream and fresh strawberries. It's like having a strawberry shortcake for breakfast!

Prep: 20 mins
Cook: 10 mins
Total: 30 mins

Servings: 4 waffles (can easily be halved or doubled)

Ingredients
  

For the Strawberry Waffles:

For the Maple Whipped Cream:

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

Instructions
 

  • 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.
  • Prepare the whole wheat waffle batter according to the recipe, then cook following 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • To Store. Store leftover waffles in an airtight storage container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  • To Reheat. Gently rewarm waffles in the microwave until warmed through.

  1. This is such a classic that it never goes out of style. Perfect for a Sunday brunch, just add a mimosa!5 stars

  2. 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.5 stars

    1. 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!

  3. Great recipe! Made some this morning for my picky toddler and he LOVED them! The only difference I would very HIGHLY recommend is to take the little bit of extra time to make your maple whip cream in an actual whip cream canister, just because mixing the syrup in with the heavy cream in just a mixer makes the resulting whip cream a little runny and not as light & airy as when you use a canister with the nitrous oxide chargers.5 stars
