The Best Chocolate Waffle Recipe
Ingredients to make chocolate waffles:
- All-purpose flour
- Baking powder
- Baking soda
- Granulated sugar
- Cocoa powder
- Vanilla extract
I suggest using quality ingredients for this recipe. The rich flavor comes from the cocoa and is enhanced with the remaining ingredients. So if you have to pick only one to splurge on, make it the cocoa powder!
Want to make these into double chocolate waffles? Stir in one cup of mini chocolate chips into the batter before cooking!
How to make chocolate waffles from scratch:
- reheat your waffle iron. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and cocoa. Set aside.
- In a large measuring cup combine the vanilla, milk, egg yolks, and butter. Stir into the dry ingredients until fully incorporated.
- Whip the egg whites until peaks form. Fold into your batter. Pour the mix into your waffle iron and cook until golden brown.
