I played around with the batter for a bit, then dropped it into my waffle iron for the experiment to begin. And boy oh boy am I glad I did. The brownie waffles turned crunchy on the outside but stayed soft on the inside. I then proceeded to top that waffle with a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream and a couple of cherries.
Oh dear, I was a very bad girl...
Brownie Waffle Sundae
Recipe written by The Chef Next Door
Print this recipe
3/4 cups cake flour
3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
4 oz. semisweet chocolate, chopped
3 Tbsp unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 large eggs
Optional toppings: Vanilla ice cream, maraschino cherries, whipped cream and sprinkles
Special equipment needed: waffle iron
Preheat a waffle iron to medium heat.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder and a pinch of salt; set aside.
Combine the chocolate and butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat and stir until completely melted and smooth. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly. Whisk in the sugar and eggs. Add the chocolate mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
Spray the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Fill the waffle iron with about 1/4 cup of the batter. Gently close the lid and cook until the waffles are cooked through. Repeat with the batter until all of the waffles have been made. (I use a 4-square Belgian waffle maker so I was able to make mine in one batch)
Allow the waffles to cool just slightly, then top each of them with desired toppings. (We used vanilla ice cream and cherries)
