  • 1 box red velvet cake mix
  • Nonstick cooking spray

For the cream cheese icing drizzle:

  • 4 ounces cream cheese (one small block), softened
  • 3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup milk, warmed

For the red berry salad:

  • 2 cups strawberries, sliced
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


Pre-heat a waffle iron to medium-high heat.

Prepare the cake mix, according to the package directions. Once the waffle iron is hot, spray with cooking spray. Pour 2 cups (about half) of the cake batter into the waffle iron. Cook for 5 minutes, then carefully remove from the waffle iron.

For the cream cheese drizzle, add the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and salt into a bowl. Slowly whisk in the milk. Set aside.

Mix together all the ingredients for the red berry salad in a small bowl.

Top each waffle with a heaping spoonful of red berry salad and a drizzle of cream cheese.
