Chocolate Waffels and Sweet & Tasty Monday

I posted these on Fat Camp Fridays !!

Sweet & Tasty Monday !!
Link up below with your favorite recipe !!

I spiced up our Sunday morning and made some chocolate waffles for breakfast. I got this recipe from Alton Brown on the Food Network website. I thought the batter was a bit thin at first, but they came out great, so I guess I did it right.  All three of us liked them.  I topped them with whipping cream and sliced fresh strawberries.  They were perfect that way, they didn't need any syrup !!

Chocolate Waffles

Ingredients

7 ounces all-purpose flour, approximately 1 1/2 cups

1 3/4 ounces sugar, approximately 3 tablespoons

1.5 ounces cocoa powder, approximately 1/2 cup

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

3 whole eggs, beaten

2 ounces unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

16 ounces buttermilk, room temperature

4 ounces chocolate chips, approximately 3/4 cup

Vegetable spray, for waffle iron

Directions

Preheat waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions.

In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. In another bowl beat together the eggs and melted butter and vanilla, and then add the buttermilk. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir in the chocolate chips just until combined. Allow to rest for 5 minutes.

Ladle the recommended amount of waffle batter onto the center of the iron. Close the iron top and cook until the waffle is crispy on both sides and is easily removed from iron. Serve immediately or keep warm in a 200 degree F oven until ready to serve.
