These waffles are pretty minimal, but they pack a serious punch of heartiness and rich fluffiness. To make them, you’ll need to have on hand all-purpose flour, dutch-process cocoa, granulated sugar, baking powder, salt, eggs, oil, and milk.
This recipe is no different and surprisingly has a perfect balance in the mixture of chocolate and sugar. Make a batch and give it a try, you will soon understand what I’m talking about.
Ingredients for Chocolate Waffles
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup oil
Instructions for Chocolate Waffles
- Preheat the waffle iron.
- In a large bowl combine dry ingredients. Flour, Sugar, Cocoa, Baking Powder, and Salt and stir to combine.
- Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients; add milk, eggs, and butter. With a fork or large spoon mix batter to combine ingredients.
- Spray Waffle Iron with Cooking Spray and pour batter into the mold.
Cook waffles according to manufacturers’ instructions.
- Generally, the light comes on when started and when the light goes off, the waffle is ready to take out
- Make the hard sauce: stir together softened butter, confectioners’ sugar, vanilla extract, and milk. The sauce should be fairly stiff. Set aside.
- Serve hot with hard sauce.
Serve with the custard sauce, whipped cream, some strawberries and a dusting of confectioners’ sugar. Garnish with icing sugar and chocolate syrup on top. Serve immediately.
Serve hot with fresh fruits, berries, sweet cream, and even a chocolate drizzle. My favorite is with Fruit Syrup, Sweetened Whipping Cream, and Fresh Fruit. I’m in heaven. What’s your favorite toppings?
Tips and Variations
- These waffles are not a sweet dessert waffle, so the syrup and berries really make them great.
- I would consider these a bit of a dark chocolate waffle. If you want less of a chocolate flavor, feel free to use ¼ cup of cocoa powder and increase the all-purpose flour to 1 ½ cups.
Waffle recipes are generally not sweet. What makes them sweet are the toppings put on top.
For breakfast – Top it with Sweet Cream, Chocolate Sauce, Berries – Strawberry, Raspberry, Blueberry, or Blackberry, Caramel Sauce, Fruit Syrups, Maple Syrup, and Buttermilk Syrup.
For dessert – Peanut Butter and Reeses Peanut Butter cups, Nutella and Strawberries, Cinnamon and Sugar with Icing, Ice Cream and Chocolate Syrup.
Storage and Heating
Freeze leftover waffles for up to 3 months when sealed in a container or zip-loc bag. Place parchment paper between waffles to prevent sticking
Re-Heat waffles in Toaster for nice hot and crispy Waffles or in the Microwave for 30-90 seconds depending on Microwave power.
