Brownie Belgium Waffles A La Mode
BY ANN PARK, PICTURE BY KATIE PARK
These chocolaty waffles were rich and decadent. My family enjoyed them, but everyone agreed that they are closer to a dessert than a breakfast! And you have to have the ice cream with them, for sure! This recipe was found at www.aspicyperspective.com.
1 1⁄2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 c. granulated sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. sea salt
10 Tbsp. melted unsalted butter
2 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2/3 c. mini chocolate chips
optional toppings: vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce,
Preheat a Belgian waffle maker. In a large bowl mix the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Melt the butter and set aside to cool a little. Beat the eggs, vanilla extract, and water in a small bowl. Whisk the egg mixture into the dry mixture, then quickly mix in the melted butter. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips. Spray the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour one-third of the batter into the waffle iron, close and cook for approximately 3 minutes. Lift the lid to check the waffle. It should be fully formed, but soft to the touch. Carefully turn the waffle iron to flip the waffle out. The moment it starts cooling, it will crisp up. Repeat with the remaining batter.
