Chocolate Almond Waffles


I came up with these waffles this morning as I felt like something a bit different for brunch. Waffle makers aren’t very expensive and they make a lovely weekend meal.

Chocolate Almond Waffles with summer fruit and syrup
Serves 4

1 1/4 quarter cups of plain flour
1 cup of almond meal
2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
3 tablespoons of sugar
1/4 cup of dark cocoa powder
3 eggs (separated)
1 1/2 cups milk
125gms butter (melted and cooled slightly
2 bananas sliced
1 cup blueberries
1 cup of fruit (I used plums, but you could use berries, stonefruit etc)
Maple syrup (not maple flavoured syrup – splash out and buy the real stuff!)

Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Make a well in the centre and add the egg yolks, milk and butter and mix until smooth
Whisk the egg whites until stiff and fold into the batter. Use half a cup of mixture into a med heat waffle make and cook for 3 minutes.
Serve with chopped fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup
