Belgian waffles

  • 1 ¾ cup Flour
  • 4 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Baking Powder
  • ¼ cup Cocoa Powder
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 ¾ cups Milk
  • ½ cup Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla

For the Filling

  • 6 Frozen bananas (up to 8)
  • 1 pint Fresh strawberries sliced thinly
  • 1 cup Fresh pineapple sliced thinly

For the Topping

  • ¼ cup Blueberries
  • ½ cup Chopped nuts
  • Marachino cherries
  • Whipped cream


To Make the Waffles

  • Begin by heating your waffle iron
  • Mix the dry ingredients together (flour, sugar, cocoa powder and baking powder), make a well in the center, and set aside
  • In a separate bowl, lightly beat the eggs, and then stir in the milk, oil, and vanilla
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients all at once and stir only until incorporated (batter should be lumpy - do not overmix)
  • Pour about 1 cup of batter into your preheated waffle iron and bake according to manufacturer's instructions.
  • Please note that this recipe will make more waffles than are needed for the cake (about 6 total)

To make the Filling

  • Using Yonana maker, make banana yogurt and set aside

Assembing the cake

  • Place one waffle on a small cake round or plate, top with approximately 1 cup of banana yogurt followed by a layer of sliced strawberries
  • Repeat this process by adding another waffle, topped with strawberries
  • Finish the cake by topping with the last waffle, and adding sliced pineapple
  • Add crushed nuts to the sides of the cake
  • Cover the cake with plastic wrap and freeze until the banana yogurt sets, about 3 to 4 hours
  • To serve, top with whipped cream, marrachino cherries, and blueberries
