(originally made 1/2010)
Right before Christmas I got a Presto Flipside waffle maker, and it's
been patiently waiting to be tested lol. Hand has finally healed
enough that I've got nothing splinted but the pinky, so I was ready to
test it out today! Very pleased with both the iron and this
fantastic Gale Gand recipe that was shared by Cyndy :) The waffles aren't
overly sweet, which I liked because Jake likes his topped with ice
cream, whipped cream and cherries. I also drizzled mine with the cherry
juice and a little chocolate syrup. YUM!
Adapted from: Gale Gand's BRUNCH!
2 large egg yolk
1 1/2 cups cold milk
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 cups A/P flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I used Penzey's- JM)
4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted (I used salted- JM)
2 large egg whites
2 tbsp light brown sugar
Heat a waffle iron.
In a medium bowl, combine the egg yolks, milk, baking powder, flour,
cocoa powder, and melted butter and mix until almost smooth. In the bowl
of a mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whip the egg whites until
stiff peaks form; then add the brown sugar and continue whipping until
stiff. fold the whipped egg whites into the batter.
for each waffle, pour 1/2 to 1 cup of the batter(or amount
recommended by the waffle iron maker) onto the waffle iron; bake as
directed by the manufacturer. (mine took exactly one cup per waffle and
made 4 nice thick ones- JM)
