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.
skip this recipe. the batter is very runny. it is chewy and doesn't crisp up well. I am in the process of working on it but already adding a 1/2 cup of flour to the recipe made it much better.
