I made these chocolate waffles for a breakfast-for-dinner potluck I had with my cousins last night! They are the perfect decadent breakfast treat. They are crispy on the outside, soft and gooey on the inside, with lots of melted chocolate chips studded throughout. It's like having a brownie for breakfast!
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup corn starch
1/4 cup cocoa powder
3/4 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
6 Tbsp. white sugar
1 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable or canola oil
1 and 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips - It is important to use mini chocolate chips in this recipe because they evenly distribute through the batter better and won't affect the shape of your waffles as much when they melt in the waffle iron.
Preheat a waffle iron.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon until combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the sugar, milk, oil, egg, and vanilla extract until the mixture is frothy.
Slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients a little bit at a time, whisking to combine. Stir until the ingredients are just combined, don't over mix. Stir in the mini chocolate chips.
Lightly grease your waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray and pour in the recommended portions of batter for 1 waffle, according to the directions on your waffle iron. I used 1/2 cup of batter per waffle in mine, but each waffle iron is different so use whatever amount is recommended in the owner's manual. Cook the batter according to your iron - mine took about 3-4 minutes per waffle.
Remove cooked waffle from the iron and repeat with the remaining batter until it is gone. This recipe will serve 3-4 people, so double it if you are serving a crowd! Serve the warm waffles with whipped cream and berries. If you want to get really fancy you could also serve these with a scoop of ice cream, whipped cream, and a drizzle of chocolate or caramel sauce for a dessert waffle!
