1 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/2 teaspoons
unsweetened cocoa powder
I have made this on several occasions -- but serve it with Nutmeg Sauce. They are awesome!
I even had to make some so my sister could share
with co-workers cause she raved about them so much!
1/2 c white sugar 1 c boiling water
1 1/2 Tbsp flour 1 1/2 Tbsp butter
salt 1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp nutmeg
combine all dry ingredients in saucepan. Add
boiling water stirring constantly. cook over low heat till thick and smooth. remove from heat,
add butter and vanilla.
(I find I need to at least double this recipe!)
A nice change from the ordinary, however the gingerbread texture tends to make these waffles not as light as waffles usually are.
The kids loved this when we served it as one of the dishes at our Christmas Eve brunch. It had to be the all time hit for the kids. I thinned the batter some though and it seemed to work well.
I never would have put this combination together on my own, but, wow, it's fabulous! The chocolate sauce could have had something to make it deeper or richer perhaps--like milk, instead of water. But, these are wonderful and very festive!
Made this for Valentines Day as I had some spare time. The chocolate sauce is divine, and the waffles are quite nice. Just about any waffle will get hard if you leave it sit long (these ones were no exception), but these are fluffy when fresh. Perhaps not quite worth the effort, but my family guessed what the flavour was, so they do taste like Gingerbread. Note that the batter looks very heavy, but it rises a lot when cooking. I only got 5 waffles out of it; in future I will halve the chocolate sauce recipe, as it made too much even though everyone used it By the way, I used "normal" molasses, and it was fine (what is "Light" molasses?).
I did not care for this--terribly dry and heavy with almost no taste to them. They fell apart as I tried to take them out of my waffle machine. My husband and I tasted a bite of the crumblies and there was absolutely nothing to redeem them. Thanks for letting me try.
Was not what I expected or was hoping for. Very thick and heavy...nothing light and fluffy. Would not make.
I made these this morning for my three kids (ages 1, 3, and 9) and no one made a sound during breakfast. Can I tell you how rare that is? That is how good these are! I can't wait to make them again.
Despite what some people said, my waffles turned out to be very light, fluffy, moist, and full of flavor. I had no difficulty removing my waffles from my waffle maker. I am certain no chef; just a housewife, but I do not understand how anyone could have difficulty with this recipe.
NOTE: Make sure you dissolve the cornstarch in a little bit of water before adding it to the sauce or you will get a few lumps. I had children pulling at my legs so I skipped that step. Then when I reheated the sauce the next morning I found a few lumps. The only change I would make, only because of person preference, is I would use milk instead of water the next time I make the chocolate sauce a little more rich.
