A cake with fruit on a plate, with Strawberry and Waffle

Strawberry Shortcake Napoleons

Servings 2 , but they're huge. I split 1 between Grace and Allie.


  • 1 quart strawberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar if desired
  • 4 Eggo Strawberry Waffles bits of strawberry inside the waffles!
  • 8 oz whipped cream You won't use all of this.


  • Hull the strawberries with a small paring knife or a corer tool. (I have a neat little spoon-shaped tool with teeth all around the edge. It makes coring strawberries a breeze. Scoop, toss. Scoop, toss.) Chop each berry into slightly larger than bite-sized pieces.

  • If you want a bit of syrup to pour over your strawberries, sprinkle them with 1/4 cup or so over sugar and put them in the refrigerator for a few hours, up to over night. I didn't want to add sugar to the girls' breakfast, so I just left theirs dry.
  • When you're ready to make the napoleons, toast the waffles.
  • Spoon a generous pile of strawberries on top of a waffle on a plate.

  • Add a dollop of whipped cream.

  • Cover with another waffle, more strawberries, and more whipped cream. Top with a strawberry garnish, a little chocolate sauce, or a dusting of colored sugar.
