Coconut Lemon Dessert Waffles

I am pretty sure that waffles should be eaten for every meal, and not only every meal, but every section of a meal.

Not just breakfast.

Lunch, appetizers, main course, dessert. Heck, sandwich course. I love them, and they are SO adaptable. You can make them sweet or savory, whatever you prefer.

Embrace the waffle.

Take, for example, these Lemon Coconut Dessert Waffles.

Why spend time making cake when you have a waffle iron? Use a cake mix, like I used this Krusteaz Lemon Cake Mix, and in no time, you’ll have a dessert that is both impressive and delicious and EASY. I developed this one as part of my Krusteaz Baker’s Dozen Ambassadorship..and I LOVED this recipe. Slice up some fresh berries, add whipped have a jazzy Strawberry Shortcake with attitude.

No one has to know it was so easy. I won’t tell.


makes 3 large waffles (10-12 servings)

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 2-3 minutes per waffle
Difficulty: Easy


1 Krusteaz Meyer Lemon Pound Cake Mix
1/2 cup Coconut Milk
1/4 cup Coconut Water (or plain water)
10 tablespoons melted butter
Large sugar crystals, if desired

1. Combine pound cake mix, milk, water, and butter. Mix until smooth.

2. heat waffle iron per manufacturer’s instructions. Spray iron with non stick spray, then sprinkle with sugar crystals, if using. Scoop batter into center of iron (batter will be thick). Cook in iron until lightly golden. Remove and repeat with remaining batter.
