I've said it before, and I'll say it again... dry cake mix can be so much fun to play around with!
It's been a really busy few weeks, and the next several to come aren't looking to be any less daunting. Fun. But, exhaustive. I think that must be how we all feel about the summer though, right?
These waffles are super easy and so fantastic! No one will ever guess that they came from a boxed cake mix.
After all... who would have thought that was even possible? I know I didn't!
Lemon and berries are one of my favorite summer-y fruit combinations.
The bright and sunny taste of a lemon keeps things fun while the sweetness of the berries keep your tastebuds grounded.

1 Box Sugar Free Yellow Cake Mix
6 Oz. Fat Free Lemon Greek Yogurt (I used Chobani.)
2 Egg Whites
1 1/3 C. Water
1 1/2 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 Lemon, Zested & Juiced
1 C. Strawberries, Halved
1 C. Blueberries
Powdered Sugar (Optional Topping)
Heat up your waffle maker. While it's heating, mix together the cake mix, yogurt, egg whites, water, vanilla and lemon zest.
Lightly spray your waffle maker with some non-stick cooking spray. Scoop the batter into your waffle maker and use just as you would any other waffle batter.
I used my counter top grill with about 1/4-1/3 c. scoops of batter.
Plate the finished waffles and top with about 1 1/2 tbsp. strawberries, 1 1/2 tbsp. blueberries and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Dust with some powdered sugar if desired. Ta-da!
Enjoy all the smiling faces (even if they decide that they don't like blueberries all the sudden.)
Clearly this recipe is Lily approved!
