This Strawberry Waffle Roll Cake uses homemade waffles to make a roll cake filled with whipped cream. It’s a beautiful brunch or breakfast idea that’s as delicious and easy to make.
In one bite, you can get your fruits, carbs and protein all in one! It can look a bit daunting to roll up a waffle, but it’s easy enough with the help of some plastic wrap.
The key is to put enough batter in the waffle iron to cover the ridges between each waffle. That way it won’t tear when you make it.
To get started, wash the strawberries and remove the green parts. Then press them together into a horizontal stack. You can actually put them in any way you like, including chopping them up. This stack hack looks fabulous though.
Then prepare your favorite waffle batter using a packaged mix or the ingredients listed. Don’t worry if your waffles are not evenly browned, since no one will notice once the waffle rolls are cut.
Once you’ve let the waffle cool for few minutes, spread the whipped topping onto the waffle.
The last step is adding the strawberries to the middle and rolling it up with some plastic wrap. Best to do this slowly to hold it all together….
And you’re almost done. Chill for at least 30 minutes and then peel off the plastic wrap. Then use a sharp knife to slice the waffle roll into pieces and you’ll see the beautiful strawberries peeking out.
It’s easiest to serve the pieces lying flat on a flat with some berry garnishes. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can stand them upright or stack them too. Enjoy!
