Do you ever dream about food? I do. Not like during sleep dreams but just day dreaming. I need a break so I am going to think about food. Foods I want to make. Foods I want to eat. Foods I want to shop for. Food. Food. Food.
It makes me pretty happy.
Lately these dreams have been about waffles. Mainly chocolate chip waffles. I couldn't get them out of my head.
The other day I had finally had enough and needed to make chocolate chip waffles. Like right that very second. Of course Mr J gladly joined in.
They were one of those meals that ends up way better than expected. You know it is going to be good but then when the chocolate melts into the batter and the warm maple syrup.
Maybe it was all the anticipation?
Chocolate Chip Waffles
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5-7 minutes
Keywords: breakfast chocolate
Ingredients (serves 4)
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 2/3 cups low-fat milk
- 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 2 extra large eggs, lightly beaten
Heat a waffle iron according to your manufacturer's instructions.
Mix the dry ingredients together with a whisk, stirring in the chocolate chips last.
In a separate bowl mix together the wet ingredients, milk, the cooled melted butter and the eggs. Whisk together.
Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. There can be a few lumps in the batter; you just don't want any dry patches or big lumps.
Pour the amount of batter specified for your waffle iron onto the preheated waffle iron and cook according to your instructions or until the steaming stops.
In general, if the steaming has dramatically slowed down and you can easily open the waffle iron to remove the waffle without it sticking, it is most likely done.
