Chocolate Cherry Stuffed Waffle Cake/#FestiveFoodies

Did you know that today is National Waffle Day? I know it may sound silly, but why not embrace it and celebrate!! It's fun, and waffles are yummy! 

Today I made a Chocolate Cherry Waffle Cake! It is three layers of waffles, whipped cream and fresh Bing cherries, drizzled chocolate and a whole lot of  taste! I would say that this recipe is definitely a dessert, but I am not saying it wouldn't be great for breakfast or brunch!  Because it would!



Chocolate Cherry Stuffed Waffle Cake

(serves 4-6)
(printable recipe at end of page)


2 cups chopped fresh Cherries
30 individual fresh Cherries
2 1/2 cup Flour
1/2 cup unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 cup Butter, softened
1 3/4 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
3 Eggs
1 1/3 cup Cold Water
2 cups Heavy Whipping Cream
2 tablespoons Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla



Rinse, then pull the stems from your cherries, and using a cherry pitter, remove the pits from each cherry. Hold one cherry back. Make sure to pit it, but don't pull the stem off. This cherry will be for the top of the cake.



  Refrigerate until you are ready to use.



In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda. Set aside. In another bowl add the butter, sugar and vanilla. Mix together until combined.  Add the eggs and cold water, and combine together.


Add the cherries to the batter.


Fold them into the mix. Heat up the waffle iron if you are planning to cook them now. Otherwise, refrigerate the batter until time to cook.



Pour the batter onto the waffle maker and cook according to the instructions for your waffle maker.



Once they are done cooking, let them cool completely.

For each layer, you will need 10 cherries, so 30 total. Although, I used 10 cherries, you could reduce the number to 8 per layer, if you wanted to, and it will still look amazing!

Place the bottom waffle on the plate or cake stand you want to serve it on. We will build from here. If you want to secure it to the plate a little bit, spread whipped cream on the plate and place the waffle over it. Using a pastry bag and a decorating tip, pipe the whipped cream around the edge of the cake piece.

Place the cherries around the edge of the cake, on top of the whipped cream. 

Fill in the center of the cake with some whipped cream, and top each cherry with whipped cream. This will give the next layer something to sit on.

Place another piece of cake on top of the cherries. You can save a little time by just piping the entire top of the this layer. 

Place the cherries around the edge of the cake, like the first layer.

Top each cherry with a bit of whipped cream from the pastry bag, and then top the cherries with the third cake layer.

Once again, add the whipped cream all around the piece of cake. Circle the cherries around the cake top. 

Fill in the center of the top waffle with the whipped cream. Place the cherry that you held back earlier, in the center of the whipped cream.

Chop approx. 5 blocks of milk chocolate, or whatever your favorite chocolate may be. Melt the chocolate.


Drizzle the chocolate over the cake and let it drip down. Add the cherry with the stem to the top of the cake. Enjoy!
