Chocolate Waffles

These Chocolate Waffles would be the perfect addition to an Easter Brunch. This is a recipe that I got from my Home Ec. class in high school. I actually have a great collection of recipes from that class. This time I made these chocolate waffles with my recipe for caramel banana topping. I included the recipe below. My kids like to eat them topped with peanut butter and syrup. They are also excellent with berries too. They are a great treat that I only make a few times throughout the year. A waffle bar would be a great for your Easter brunch. If you did a waffle bar these recipes would also be great additions: tender sour cream waffles (my favorite waffle recipe), merry berry syrup, lemon syrup, orange walnut butter, apple cider syrup, and berry topping. If a waffle bar isn’t what you are looking for for easter brunch, then browse my breakfast category for more ideas.

Chocolate Waffles

1 1/4 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
5 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 cup milk
2 eggs, separated
1/4 cup oil
1/4 tsp. vanilla

Beat egg whites until soft peaks for, set aside. Sift all dry ingredients together (or whisk them together). Beat egg yolk in another bowl for 1 minute, then mix in milk, oil, and vanilla. Combine the dry ingredients with the milk mixture. Stir only until blended. Fold in egg whites. Cook in waffle iron. This will make 4 Belgian waffles. I also have a Mickey Mouse waffle iron and I can get 9 waffles from there.

Caramel Banana Topping
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup light corn syrup
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 medium bananas, sliced
In 1-quart saucepan, mix all topping ingredients except bananas. Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring occasionally; remove from heat. Gently stir in bananas until well coated. Keep warm. (This topping makes enough to cover 3 large Belgian sized waffles)
