You know that feeling that you need to bake? Just have to bake? I felt like this this weekend, and felt like waffles… Golden brown baked homemade waffles. But I could not choose between vanilla or chocolate waffles and thus tried them both.. And mixed together. Result? I ended up baking just a little (ok a lot) more waffles then intended but they were so yum and my neighbours (and colleagues… did I mention I made a lot?) did not complain …..
- 250gr self raising flour
- 120gr white sugar
- 30gr vanilla sugar
- 200gr butter, melted
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 table spoon vanilla powder
- 25gr raw cacao powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- a couple of pinches of salt
Mix the flour, sugar, vanilla sugar, baking powder, vanilla powder and salt together in a bowl. Please make sure your bowl is large enough, we still need to add on our “wet” ingredients to the “dry” ones.
Add part of the melted butter to the mix and stir well. Then add the remainder of the melted butter and mix well again. In a small bowl, break the eggs and beat them so they resemble an omelet. Add this onto the flour mixture too until all is absorbed and no lumps remain in your batter.
Now divide the batter in two – one half will remain vanilla, and to the other half, we will add the cacao powder.
Heat up your waffle iron on the side and grab two spoons. Once the iron is hot, the fun stuff starts! Take half a spoon of chocolate batter and add on half a spoon of vanilla batter with the other spoon. Drop this onto your hot waffle iron and bake for a few minutes until golden brown. If you have a cake stand ready, you can let the waffles cool down on this or alternatively, eat them as fast as you can bake them 🙂
