Kodiak Cakes Waffle Recipe: Update Your Mix
March 20, 2022 9 Comments
This Kodiak Cakes waffle recipe does not follow the recipe on the box. Why? Because it is too basic to be truly delicious.
Kodiak Cakes is a rare pancake mix that is 100% whole grain and only has 3 grams of sugar for three waffles.
I like whole grain pancake mix because it makes my life easier. Also, they sell this in big boxes at Costco so I have a ton of this stuff.
Time to upgrade the waffles! I went for the obvious by adding frozen (thawed) blueberries because everyone loves blueberries in their waffles. You can add any fruit that you like - frozen strawberries, mango, raspberries, banana....
I added an egg, yogurt and vanilla. I love yogurt in my waffles because it gives them a sour flavor (kinda like sourdough bread).
The original Kodiak Cakes waffle recipe calls only for water and a tablespoon of oil. I updated the box recipes quite a bit and I must say mine is much better (though a bit more work).
You can go without the oil because you add the yogurt to give it flavor.
I did spray the waffle maker with non-stick spray to ensure that the waffles could be removed when done cooking.
How did they turn out? They didn’t taste like cardboard! Kodiak cake mix is the perfect 100% whole grain mix to upgrade. When you add yogurt and blueberries they become fluffier and less like cardboard.
The yogurt and blueberry ensures these are sweet enough to not need syrup but you can add it if you want it.
Freeze these in a Ziploc bag and pop them in the toaster when you want to eat them. You will NEVER eat Eggo Waffles again if you put in the effort. These aren’t even the same animal.
