saw wolfgang puck making these and boy did they look good . so i went out and found the recipe lol. these are sweet and really good with cherry pie filling and cool whip
- 2 cups flour
- 1 1⁄4 cups sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 4 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1⁄4 cup butter, melted, cooled
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons red food coloring
- PREHEAT WAFFLE IRON.

- beat egg whites until stiff.
- mix dry ingredients togetherthen add wet.
- MIX ALL INGREDIENTS TOGETHER.
- fold in egg whites.
- pour into waffle iron and cook until done.
The flavor of the recipe is great, but they are a little chewy. Next time I'm going to substitute 1/2 the butter with vegetable oil.
I did make some minor changes to the recipe before I started: decrease buttermilk to 1 2/3 cup, increase cocoa to 3 tbsp and next time I'm going to add 1/2 tsp cinnamon.
I also make "frosting". 4 oz cream cheese, 1/2 stick of butter, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/4 c. powdered sugar, and chopped pecans
I found the batter to be runny, but the flavor of the finished waffle was delicious. The color was a brilliant red which my children enjoyed. I added more flour in to the batter to thicken it up, but I would definetly decrease the liquid in the recipe and add more chocolate the next time I cook these.
I want to give 3 1/2 stars because I really like the concept of these and I know they can be a 4 star ore more recipe. The problem was that I couldn't get them to crisp up at all on the waffle iron no matter what I did. They were just floppy and limp but not too bad tasting. I think maybe if I had mode the mixture as pancakes I would be raving. Made for Zee Zany Zesty Cookz for Family Picks portion of ZWT 6.
