Pie? Also awesome.
Combining all three into one?
Well, follow along and find out for yourself.
If you can follow baking directions without destroying your kitchen, congrats, you can make this. There is a lot of versatility in type of pie crust, filling, and cake batter, so this is a general overview with no specific ingredients to use. Mix and match to personal taste.
Step 1: Supplies
- Ingredients to make your choice of cake batter OR pre-made cake mix*
- Pie tin or cake form
- Waffle iron (preferably a round one if using round pie tin/cake form)
- Pie filling
- Rolling pin, spatula, knives, measuring cups, mixer/food processor... all those miscellaneous baking things.
*I've always had success with pre-made mixes in the waffle iron, but not so much with home-made-from-scratch cake batter, so if you plan to go the from-scratch route, you may want to have extra ingredients/time on hand to experiment a bit and find out what works and what ends in failure. Short of it bursting into flames, you can almost always eat your mistakes.
Step 2: Pie Crust
If going the no-bake route, make the entire crust and then set it aside. (Perhaps use a cookie crumb crust to turn it into cakewafflecookiepie?)
Step 3: Cake Batter
I put it into a large measuring cup for ease of pouring later.
Step 4: Intermission
Step 5: Makin' Waffles
Step 6: Filling
Step 7: Building the Pie Crust
If the dough needs more flour to achieve a good consistency, knead it in now, then roll it flat and cut sections to cover the bottom and sides of the pie tin.
Step 8: Putting It All Together
Once that's all done, cover the lot with a top crust. Be as simple or as fancy as you feel like. Maybe a crumble topping to make cakewafflepiecrisp? Also, maybe poke some air escape holes in it like I forgot to do.
Step 9: Leftovers
Or just shovel them right into your face. I won't judge.
