Chocolate Waffes 2

A few weeks ago I woke up in the middle of the night with a crazy idea. Cake batter + waffle iron = Genius!!  After a Google search the next morning I discovered that I was not the first person to think of this!

Story of my life. But I’m over it now.

I like homemade cakes best and found a few chocolate cake recipes in my old friend – The Better Homes and Garden Cookbook.  I mixed up a combo of the Devil’s Food and the Fudge cake and added an extra egg as I wanted it a bit denser.  After the batter was mixed I turned on my waffle maker to medium heat and sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. When ready, I filled just one corner of the waffle iron and let it bake.  I did not do an entire waffle at one time. I was worried it would be hard to get out without breaking apart.  I have a large Cuisinart waffle maker and ended up with 8 good sized cakes.

There are so many ways to serve this.  In this picture I have topped with strawberry ice cream, fresh fruit and my delicious, homemade chocolate sauce. Another idea is to spread the waffle with strawberry jam, let it sit for a few minutes, and then finish off with whatever toppings you choose. The jam soaks in a bit and makes for a softer and more rich cake.  So yummy!

Mix up your favorite cake and give it a try.

Mom’s Chocolate Sauce Recipe

  • 2 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
Combine dry ingredients in a medium-sized saucepan then whisk in the milk and melted butter. Continuing whisking and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes or so whisking often. Remove from heat, add vanilla, and cool. The last time I made this I had a single mini Dove chocolate and a few leftover mini dark chocolate chunks and tossed them in as well!  Super delish.
Store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, covered. 
Wilton makes a variety of plastic bottles that work well for drizzling the chocolate sauce.  This one from Joann’s is only $1.50.
