Mocha Waffles

Did you know that the second week in September is “National Waffle Week”? In honor of that, I am sharing these yummy waffles.

To begin, in a saucepan combine 1/2 cup strong coffee and 6 tablespoons of unsalted butter. Melt this together over low heat until just melted. Remove from heat.

In your mixing bowl, combine 2 cups flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/3 cup baking cocoa, 1/3 cup brown sugar and 2 tablespoons instant espresso powder. Stir those together and set aside for now.

Separate 4 eggs into two different bowls.

Beat the egg whites with an electric beater until soft, glossy peaks form.

Beat the yolks until smooth.

Back to your dry ingredients. Add in the coffee-butter mixture, egg yolks and 1 1/2 cup milk.

Mix until smooth.

Gently fold the egg whites into your rich batter.

When just combined, prepare these waffles in your waffle maker according to its instructions. This makes about 7 – eight inch “Belgian” style waffles.

Because these waffles are not terribly sweet, you can top them with whatever you like. I’m going with a dusting of powdered sugar…

Some fresh strawberries and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.

  1. These sound delicious. I haven’t made Belgian waffles in literally decades, so I’m not sure how many people this would serve. Is one waffle per person appropriate serving size? Thanks.
