Chocolate Waffles

I realize the picture doesn't really show the waffles so much but I had to share the recipe because they were so good!

Yesterday was my birthday and my 5 year old daughter asked if she could pretty please make me a chocolate waffle cake for my birthday. Of course I agreed and, with the help of my husband and my 2 year old son, she created a beautiful waffle cake for me.

I did sneak a taste of the plain waffle and it was fantastic! Definately a recipe that will be made again!


Chocolate Waffles

Recipe from Annie Eats

1½ cups (7 oz.) all-purpose flour
3 tbsp. (1¾ oz.) sugar
½ cup (1½ oz.) cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. baking soda
3 large eggs, beaten
4 tbsp. butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups buttermilk, at room temperature
¾ cup mini chocolate chips
Nonstick cooking spray

Preheat the waffle maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Preheat the oven to 200˚ F.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Whisk to blend. In another bowl combine the eggs, butter, vanilla and buttermilk. Whisk to blend well. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just until incorporated. Stir in the mini chocolate chips. Let the batter rest for 5 minutes.

Fill the waffle iron with batter and cook until the waffle is crisp and completely cooked. Transfer finished waffles to the preheated oven and repeat until all the batter has been used. Serve immediately with fresh berries and whipped cream.

How sweet of her to make such a fabulous cake for you! Alexander keeps asking me if I'll make Death by Chocolate for my birthday, because he loves it so much. But I have other ideas...

Anyway - hope you had a wonderful day!
