Going back to work after a long weekend is quite an effort. Weekends always seem to be so short, but I’m happy that I got to do some cleaning and arranging things around the house and make some dishes for the blog. We also watched “Men In Black 3” in the theater, an evening show with our son for the first time. We took him to the afternoon shows since they are less crowded, but this time we took a chance. He slept after watching the previews and may be about 15minutes of the movie (oh. well……)
I was raking my mind on what breakfast to make for blogging marathon this morning and I asked my son if he wanted pancakes or waffles. He said he wanted chocolate waffles and added that he would help me make them too.
A quick google search landed me on this recipe from Williams Sonoma, I had all the ingredients on hand except for semi-sweet chocolate, so I used a combo of unsweetened and milk chocolate. Waffles came out perfect and the chocolate sauce is to die for. I’m looking forward to use the sauce on ice-creams, pancakes, bananas,…..
I added half a measure of whole-wheat pastry flour and used Vanilla soy milk instead of regular milk.
Recipe adapted from here.
Waffles with Chocolate Malted Syrup
- 1 cup All-purpose flour
- 1 cup Whole-wheat pastry flour
- 2 tsp Baking powder
- ¾ tsp Salt
- 1/3 cup Sugar
- 1¾ cups Soy milk (or regular milk)
- 2 Eggs - lightly beaten
- 4 tbsps Butter (½ stick), melted
- 2 tsp Vanilla extract
- 2 oz chocolate Semi-sweet - grated (I used 1oz. each of unsweetened & milk s)
For the Chocolate-Malt Syrup:
- 1 cup Heavy Cream
- ½ cup milk Malted powder
- 4 oz chocolate Semi-sweet - ., finely chopped (I used 2oz. each of unsweetened & milk s)
- In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients - flours, baking powder, salt and sugar. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, whisk in milk, butter, eggs and vanilla extract.
- Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
- Stir in the grated chocolate.
- Follow the instructions on the waffle maker and make waffles accordingly. In my waffle maker, I add 1 cup of batter and cook for about 4 minutes for perfect waffles.
- Keep the waffles warm in a preheated 200°F oven.
- For the Chocolate syrup: In a medium size sauce pan; warm the cream until small bubbles form on the edges of the pan. Remove from heat and whisk in the malted milk powder & chocolate; whisk until smooth. Keep warm.
- To serve, drizzle the waffle generously with chocolate sauce and enjoy!! It's definitely a little messy to eat, but tastes absolutely delicious.
