The Perfect Chocolate Waffles

What's the Difference Between Waffles and Belgium Waffles?

Belgium waffles are deliciously thick while regular waffles are thinner. Belgium waffles are made in a waffle iron that has deeper grids than waffle irons you would find in the small appliance section. Belgium waffle batter is also made differently, by adding whipped egg whites to the batter.

Can You use Pancake Mix to Make Waffles?

Most pancake mixes can be made into waffles, by adding extra oil and an eggs. Many pancake mixes have instructions to make both pancakes and waffles on the box. 

Should Waffle Batter be Thick or Thin?

Waffle batter should be thicker than water, but not as thick as dough. It should move slowly when poured, almost like molasses or honey.

how to make chocolate waffles

You will need 3 bowls to make these waffles. 

First, start by whisking your dry ingredients in a large bowl. 

Secondly, seperate the egg whites from the egg yolks and whisk the egg yolk with the remaining wet ingredients. 

Add the egg yolk mixture to the dry ingredients and mix together.

Finally, whip your egg whites to medium peaks and gently fold them into the remaining batter.

Preheat your waffle iron before you start mixing your ingredients to make sure it is nice and hot!

Equipment needed for this recipe

  • waffle iron (I used my mini dash waffle iron)
  • mixing bowls (3)
  • measuring cups for both dry and liquid measures
  • measuring spoons
  • laddle or pitcher/glass measuring up with a spout
  • whisk
  • mixer
Perfect Chocolate Waffles

2 1/4 C flour
1/2 C cocoa powder
1/3 C brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs, separated
2 C milk
1/2 C canola oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract
Whipped cream for topping
caramel sauce to drizzle
strawberries, bananas, nuts etc for topping

Preheat your waffle iron, according to manufacturer's instructions.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

In a second mixing bowl separate the egg whites, from the yolks; placing the whites in a third bowl. Whisk in the brown sugar into the egg yolks until smooth. Add in the milk, oil, vanilla and almond extract, whisking until well combined. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until smooth.

Using a mixer, beat the egg whites on high speed until medium peaks form. Using a spatula, gently fold the egg whites into the batter, until incorporated. 

Depending the size of your waffle iron, pour between 1/4 C (for my mini dash waffle iron), to 3/4 C (for a regular size waffle iron) of batter onto your hot waffle iron. Cook waffles according to manufacturers instructions, or for 4-6 minutes, until waffles are cooked through. 

Serve waffles with strawberries, bananas, nuts, whipped cream and a generous drizzle of caramel sauce.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

Easy Balsamic Glazed Salmon

 This is a healthy, easy and impressive way to prepare salmon. The glaze is simple, yet flavourful, and this will quickly become your favourite salmon recipe. Salmon is a reddish fish, that is tender yet firm and it is a favourite amongst many, due to it's buttery flavour. It is low in saturated fat and high in protein and is also a great source of vitamin B12 and Potassium. These are only some of the reasons salmon has been deemed a super food. When I worked at the natural food market, I cooked quite a bit of salmon over those 3 years. It was a staple on our hot buffet and one of our most popular items. Our patrons preferred it prepared simply with dill, lemon, salt and pepper. While this is one of my favourite ways to prepare salmon, sometimes you need a little variety. The balsamic vinegar becomes wonderfully sweet as it bakes in the oven. The Dijon adds a slight tartness, to balance out the sweetness. With only a few healthy ingredients, this recipe is deliciously simple and wo
