~ Freezer-friendly fluffy chocolate waffles studded with little pockets of melted chocolate ~
I don’t want to think about my finals. All I care about is that they’re over at last. I can finally focus on eating properly again. My comfort food for the past three days has been cookies n’ cream ice cream, which is so insanely addicting, especially when the ice cream lacks chunks of cookies. I have to dig through the ice cream container (by eating it) to find the cookie chunks, and then eating those too.
I’ve moved on from ice cream now. Time for waffles.
There’s something so satisfying about pretty-fying waffles and finishing it with a drizzle of chocolate and that beautiful sprig of mint. It’s similar to pretty-fying crepes. You can probably see a resemblance between these fluffy, chocolate-studded waffles and these pink beetroot crepes I made previously. Look at this cool gif though:
Whether or not your exams are over, you deserve these double chocolate waffles. Trust me.
Notes: This recipe makes a relatively large batch of waffles, so if you end up with leftovers, store them in a freezer-friendly container, or wrap them in cling film and store in the freezer. Reheat in the toaster or microwave.
Double Chocolate Waffles
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 7 tbsp (100g) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
- 3 large eggs
- 1/3 cup + 2 tbsp sour cream or yoghurt (I used yoghurt)
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/3 cups milk
- 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
- Toppings of choice
- In a mixing bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter, eggs, sour cream/yoghurt, vanilla extract, and milk
- Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir gently until fully thoroughly combined
- Fold in the mini chocolate chips
- Preheat and butter a waffle iron to your desired temperature
- Spoon about 1/3 to 1/2 cup (depending on the size of your waffle maker) of the batter into the middle of the waffle mixer and cook (base the cooking time off of your waffle mixer, but it should take about 1.5-2 minutes)
- Transfer waffles onto plates and top with your desired toppings (e.g. ice cream, berries, melted chocolate) and serve warm
