Chocolate Waffles

Submitted by: Sunshine Mom on August 18, 2010

My daughter requested chocolate waffles for her 13th birthday breakfast. I tweaked Alton Brown’s recipe and they were amazing!!! They come out with a slightly crisp outside and soft, tender insides.

Servings: 4-8   Prep Time: 5 minutes   Cook Time: 20 minutes  


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3T sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
3 whole eggs, beaten
1/4 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups buttermilk (don’t substitute!!!!)
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
waffle iron


1. Preheat your waffle iron. I turn on mine before I even start making the waffles,
so that it is piping hot and ready to go after the waffle batter rests.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar,
cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.

3. In another bowl, beat the eggs together
with the oil and vanilla and then add the buttermilk.

4. Make a well in the center of the dry mix and add the wet.

5.Let the batter rest for five minutes.

6. I use a 1/3 cup measuring cup to add the batter to the waffler maker.

7. Let them cook for five minutes.

8. Now add butter, syrup, jam, even peanut butter!
