I was making waffles the other day, but I was out of eggs. So I adapted a recipe and then made further changes by adding chocolate and marshmallows. Yummy.
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1⁄4 cup butter or 1⁄4 cup margarine
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
- 3 cups mini marshmallows
- Heat your waffle iron.
- Mix together sour cream, milk, butter and sugar.
- Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder together into the sour cream mixture.
- Lastly, mix in the mini marshmallows.
- The mixture will be pretty thick.
- Spoon 2 tablespoons of the mixture onto your waffle iron.
- The cooking time will depend on your waffle iron. I set mine at 3, and cooked the waffles for 3 minutes.
This recipe was a total flop. I followed the recipe to a T and ended up with a big sticky, odd tasting mess. On my first try I put only a couple of tablespoons of batter on my waffle iron, as was specified in the instructions. When I opened up the iron basically there was just melted marshmallows and a tiny amount of cooked batter spread out on the iron. The second time I put a good 1/2-3/4 cup of batter on the iron thinking that this would be enough to cook into an actual waffle of sorts. Same thing happened though and the marshmallow melted leaving broken sections of cooked waffle parts that had to be scraped off the iron into a heap. I did taste the remains and it was odd. Definate sour cream taste and very little else. So all this recipe has afforded me is a big sticky mess to clean up and an unfulfilled craving for chocolate waffles! Added Comment: It looks as though my waffle iron is ruined. I can find no way to successfully remove the melted marshmallow coating that covers the entire iron without scraping it which would take forever and ruin the nonstick surface anyway or soaking in water which would also obviously ruin the iron. So now I also get to throw my waffle iron away as a result of trying this recipe. :(
This recipe can be messy, but it wasn't horrible. Ok, I will confess, too, that I changed a few things because of what was available at the time: I used plain yogurt in place of sour cream, melted the butter to mix it easier, and I basically doubled the recipe without doubling up the marshmallows (I only used 1.5 cups because I realized that it was there for binding purposes). Because of the marshmallows I was expecting "too sweet" kind of waffles, but it actually turned out pretty tasty and not at all sweet. It was just right with some syrup. There was enough for 4 people, and kids loved it. You can't find the marshmallows at all in the done product so they didn't even know. In other waffles recipe I tend to have to lift the waffle iron lid sooner than the light indicates, but this really needed the whole time and some, so keep your eyes open for the timing. Even if it split during peeking, it got itself back together again in a jiffy and I could ply it out gently which was a bonus. It is a recipe for the fun seeking, and not for the faint hearted ;)
