Dark Chocolate Waffles – Recipe
Chocolate lovers will appreciate this Dark Chocolate Waffles recipe, since these waffles are not only great for breakfast, but also as a delicious dessert.
The original recipe was posted by Bon Appetit, but since I made few changes, I will post my version for you.
Originally I made these for breakfast, served with warm sauce made from fresh fruit, topped with whipped cream.
However, they were delicious the next day, warmed up and served with a scoop of Mango Ice Cream, drizzled with Caramel sauce.
This recipe yields 8-10 round waffles.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour (I used Unbleached Gold Metal flour)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened Dark Chocolate cocoa powder
- 14 cup brown sugar
- 2 tsp. baking powder (I use aluminum free)
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 3 large eggs, separated
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract (or your favorite flavor)
- 4 oz. semi-sweet baking chocolate, finely chopped
- 2 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate, finely chopped
- In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients: flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
- In a medium bowl, mix buttermilk, egg yolks, oil, butter, and vanilla.
- Using a fork, incorporate liquids into the dry ingredients, until well combined.
- In a small bowl, beat egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form.
- Using a spatula, fold egg whites into batter.
- Also fold in the shaved chocolate.
- Heat waffle iron, sprayed with cooking spray, and pour about 1/3 cup of batter onto it.
- Cook until done (follow manufacturer instructions).
- Keep waffles warm in a warm oven, while cooking remaining batches.
- Serve warm, or cool completely to store in the fridge, or for freezing.
