Chocolate Waffles

Chocolate waffles hot from the iron with a fluffy cloud of whipped cream make for a perfect dessert.  Or — if it’s just one of those mornings — a rare breakfast treat.

Cocoa powder and bittersweet chocolate add to balanced rich chocolate flavor, with mild sweetness to let ice cream or whipped cream add to the taste.  Feel free to add chopped bananas, ice cream, or chocolate sauce on top of these delicious lovelies.  Enjoy!

Chocolate Waffles

1 cup (5 oz) unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 cup (3/12 oz) sugar
1/2 cup (2 oz) unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 large eggs
1/2 stick (1/4 cup) unsalted butter, melted
3/4 cup (6 oz) buttermilk (more, if needed)
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 oz bittersweet chocolate, melted

Mix together all dry ingredients until combined.  Add eggs, buttermilk, vanilla extract, and butter.  Gently combine until almost mixed.  Stir in melted chocolate and mix gently until combined.  This will be a thick batter, but feel free to add a bit more buttermilk if batter is too thick.  Bake on a hot waffle iron and enjoy!
