METHOD: The Ultimate Chocolate Waffles

  1. Sieve the baking powder, flour and cocoa powder into a large mixing bowl, ensuring that you remove all the lumps. Then, stir in the sugar and salt until completely incorporated.
  2. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and milk, add in the oil and water, and then mix again.
  3. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the egg yolk mixture while whisking, until you're left with a smooth, thick batter.
  4. Whisk up the egg whites in another bowl until soft peaks are formed. Fold in one third of the egg whites into the batter using a metal spoon until just combined, then add in the rest of the whites and carefully fold so you don't knock out any air.
  5. Prepare your waffle maker or heat up a waffle iron. Spray over with cooking spray or pour in a little bit of oil, until the surface is just covered. Spoon in a large amount of the waffle batter and cook for about 2 minutes or until just set. If you're using a waffle machine, make sure you follow the machine's instructions.
  6. Continue this process until you have a stack of thick waffles. You can always keep each one warm in the oven while you cook the rest of the waffles!
  7. Pick your toppings! If you'd like a mixture of all your favourites, why not go for it? We went for a selection of different berries with a mound of squishy marshmallows and, finally, a dollop of ice cream for good measure!
