Ingredients

  • 1½ cups all purpose flour
  • ½ Tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1¼ cups buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • Strawberries, bananas, whipped cream, and chocolate sauce for serving
  • 3 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons white sugar

Instructions

  1. Dig your waffle maker out from the back of your cabinets and preheat it
  2. I usually put a paper towel or wax paper under the waffle maker to make clean up easier.In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugars, and cocoa
  3. In another bowl whisk together oil, eggs, vanilla, and buttermilk.Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined
  4. Batter will be lumpy.Depending on the size of your waffle iron, you may need more or less batter
  5. I used about a ½ cup for one waffle
  6. Pour batter onto hot waffle iron then scatter evenly with a handful of chocolate chips
  7. Close the waffle iron and let cook–it could take anywhere from 4-8 minutes
  8. I find that mine are just about perfect once the steam has mostly subsided.Carefully remove waffle from iron and place in a single layer on a baking sheet in a 200 degree oven to keep warm.To serve, top waffles with slices of fresh strawberries, bananas, a swirl of whipped cream, and a drizzle of chocolate sauce
  9. This made 5 waffles in my iron, but if you have a large Belgian waffle iron, it will probably only make 3.
