The wonderful thing about waffles are that waffles are wonderful things. You can have them with some jam for breakfast, with cheese & ham for lunch, or in this case, gussy them up as a dessert item. I have a sweet tooth 😀
Trying my hand at Belgian waffle-making the other night, the results were quite delicious. I don’t have a firm recipe so follow my steps with a grain of salt, but this should yield 2 waffles. I ended up with 1 and 1/2 waffles but I filled the waffle iron to the brim the first time and produced Godzilla waffle. Anyway, lets cook!
Everything needed to prepare a Belgian Waffle: eggs, milk, butter, flour, baking powder, peanut butter, chocolate sauce, maple syrop, and of course a waffle iron.
Crack 2 eggs and pour some milk. Whisk away until your mixture reaches just under 1 cup.
Mix in a finger of butter. It’s easier if you soften it in the microwave for 5 seconds first.
Add flour and a teaspoon of baking powder. Whisk vigorously until you have just under 1 and 1/3 cup of mixture. Don’t pour in all the flour immediately; the mixture will rise somewhat as you whisk.
Mix peanut butter and chocolate sauce together to create delicious chocobutter.
Fire up your waffle iron and pour the mixture in. Don’t fill the waffle iron to the brim, as I did, or you’ll end up with Godzilla rising.
The waffle in its golden glory, hot off the iron. You’ll know it’s done when the waffle takes on a golden-brown complexion.
Smother that waffle with chocobutter and drizzle with maple syrop to form the mother of all desserts. Dig in!
