Cake Batter Birthday Waffles Recipe

Your birthday may only come around once a year but these cake batter birthday waffles don't have to! I first stumbled upon this recipe from Dear Chrissy a few months back and now constantly dream about these delicious waffles. Top them with fresh fruit and whipped cream or eat as is. My fav? Strawberries and whipped cream for the win. Trust me, these waffles taste as good as they look.
