As I mentioned the last time I blogged about waffles, I used to make breakfast for Sean and myself every weekend morning. Somewhere along the line, this ritual went by the wayside. In yet another attempt to rectify this, I decided to make some special waffles. After some searching on Foodgawker, I found this recipe for Brownie Waffles on Domestic Fits.
Makes 2 Belgian-sized waffles.
- 1 cup flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1 cup milk, divided in half
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 eggs, yolks and white separated
- 1/4 cup sugar
- Optional: whipped cream, chocolate chips, chocolate syrup, etc. (for topping)
Get out three bowls, one of which needs to be microwave safe.
In the largest bowl, add the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, and salt. Stir to combine. Set aside.
In the microwave safe bowl, add the chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of milk. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between trips into the microwave, until everything is melted. Add the remaining milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract. Stir to combine.
Separate the two eggs, adding the whites to the third bowl. Drop the yolks into the milk/chocolate mixture and stir again. Add the sugar to the bowl with the egg whites. Using a hand mixer, whip until soft peaks form. This will take about 5 minutes.
Now return to the bowl full of dry ingredients. Make a well in the middle and add the milk and chocolate mixture. Mix until everything is just combined. Fold in the egg whites until just incorporated.
Preheat your waffle iron. Cook according to manufacturer’s directions.
Top with whipped cream, some chocolate chips, maybe a little chocolate syrup? Go nuts!
