Waffle Sundaes

About 45,000 Longhorn fans and I showed up to the football game on Saturday.  I am not sure where the team was because the guys suited up on the field were not the same team that played the week before against West Virginia.  Then again, the W Va team did not show up to play Texas Tech this weekend either.

The Horns took a beating and the kids and I lost our annual bet with our OU friends.  Yet again this year, we are treating to ice cream.  Perhaps we will offer this option.  I saw it on the Food Network while walking on the treadmill and we drowned our sorrows in it Saturday night.  Aaron McCargo Jr. of Big Daddy’s House hosted a Wafflicious show and made a Dulce de Leche Cake Waffle.  The fun part of this recipe is using boxed cake batter to make the waffles.  We used a chocolate cake mix and then the kids picked the toppings for their sundae.  You will use about 1 cup of batter for each waffle which meant leftovers for some mini-cupcakes.

The Horns may have lost, but OU still stinks (some rivalries just keep going even in a down year).

Waffle Sundaes
1.      1 box cake mix 
2.      Nonstick spray, like Pam
3.      Ice cream
4.      Toppings, like chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, bananas, whipped cream, cherries, nuts….

Prepare the cake batter using the instructions on the box.  Spray the waffle iron with nonstick spray.  When ready, pour about 1 cup of cake batter onto the waffle iron. 

Remove the waffle when done.  You can keep it warm by placing it on a wire cooling rack on top of a cookie sheet and in an oven at 250 degrees.

When ready to serve, cut the waffle into pieces.  Place 1 piece (or more if you’re hungry) into a bowl, top with ice cream and then your selection of toppings.

My salve was a Fried Snickers at the Fair. That thing will change your life (if not shorten it). The Waffle Sundae looks like an admirable substitute, and I fear we will have other opportunities this year to try it out.
