Summers are sweet, so why not make them sweeter with a delicious take on the strawberry shortcake? Similar to the classic apple pie, strawberry shortcake has all the right ingredients to satisfy every sweet tooth during the warm summer months. This American classic even has a national day in its honor (June 14th), so why not participate in the fun and whip up a batch of delicious Strawberry Shortcake waffles perfect for those slow weekend mornings.
After a few simple steps using easy to source ingredients, you’re left with a perfect treat for an at home brunch, breakfast in bed or even a way satisfy an afternoon sweet tooth! For this specific version, I purchased already baked European waffles from a local bakery to make the recipe even more simple. If you happen to own a waffle maker, I’m sure making them from scratch would be even more delicious! Once you’ve gathered all your ingredients, the recipe is a piece of cake (pun intended!)
