Readers and Writers Recipes: Chocolate Waffles

These brownie-like chocolate waffles are a hit with kids and grown-ups alike. All you need is confectionery sugar to sprinkle on the waffles before serving, but sometimes I put a scoop or 2 of ice cream on top of a chocolate waffle for an extra-special treat. Like last week’s Pepperoni Pizza Dip, Chocolate Waffles work well for a book club or readers’ group get-together, family party, or any other fun gathering.

Chocolate Waffles

Ingredients:

1/2 cup margarine (or butter if you prefer), softened

1 cup granulated sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 Tablespoons vegetable oil

6 Tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa

1/2 cup milk (I use skim)

1-1/2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

Directions:

1- Cream margarine and sugar. Then, beat in eggs one at a time.

2- Stir in vanilla, vegetable oil, and cocoa.

3- Add flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Then, add milk. Mix until well-blended.

4- Follow the directions on your waffle iron for cooking waffles. Serve hot or cold.

Notes:

1- Make sure your waffle iron is well-oiled or sprayed with a vegetable cooking spray (like Pam).

2- Watch closely. As soon as the waffles appear cooked, remove them. Remember, because they’re chocolate, it’s harder to tell if they’re burning.

3- The cinnamon is optional. Some people prefer the waffles without it.
