Belgian Chocolate Waffles

You can’t get a much more Belgian treat than this. Belgium is well known for its chocolate and its yummy waffles. Combine the 2 and please the crowd.

When I first got the waffle maker for my birthday, I got so excited. I went to school and told all my friends. They all wanted to try them so my dad showed me this recipe amd I found it so easy to make and my friends found them delicious. I think the first time I had waffles was at a friends house, we had them for desert with ice-cream and syrup.

Who connected us?!  Our youngest son regulary has some friends over to stay the night and he wants to serve them a special brekky. So for his birthday he asked for a waffle maker, and he has been practising his waffle making skills ever since.

Belgian Chocolate Waffle Ingredients

  • 200g butter
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 170g plain flour
  • 30g cocoa powder
  • icing sugar to serve

Preparing the chocolate waffle mixture:

  • In a mixing bowl, mix the softened butter, caster sugar and eggs.
  • In another bowl, sieve together the flour and cocoa powder.
  • Gradually add the egg mixture to the bowl with the dry ingredients while whisking vigoriously until a smooth batter. Don’t add all the wet ingredients at once, to prevent getting a lumpy batter.
  • Cover and leave to stand for 10 minutes.
  • Preheat the waffle maker
  • Add a large spoon full of batter to the waffle maker and bake in about 5 minutes according the the instructions of your waffle maker.
