I'm still obsessed with my bubble waffle maker! Today I thought I'd share a chocolate bubble waffle recipe with you all. Keep in mind that you can also use this same batter in a Belgian waffle maker. But whatever you do, be sure to fill (or top) these with sliced banana and Nutella.
But if you're not feeling the Nutella, I also highly recommend bananas and peanut butter. Really, anything that goes well with chocolate goes well with these waffles. If you are making bubble waffles, I recommend folding them into a taco shape before filling as it makes it easier to eat.
3/4 cup cake flour
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons cocoa
1/3 cup milk
3 eggs, yolks and whites separated
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons melted butter
bananas and Nutella for serving
In a bowl combine the cake flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cocoa. Whisk to combine and remove any lumps from the cake flower and cocoa, which tend to clump. Stir in the milk, egg yolks, vanilla extract and melted (but cooled) butter.
In an electric mixer beat the egg whites until very foamy/frothy. Gently fold the egg whites into the thick batter until just combined.
Follow your waffle iron manufacturer's directions to cook the batter. If you're making bubble waffles that you plan to fold and fill, I recommend draping cooked waffles over a glass just after they come out of the iron, like in the photo above. This helps them not crack when you're ready to fold them later.
