A while ago my fun Grandma gave me a Waffle Brownie recipe she thought my Little Chefs would love to try. I loved that she knew what we were doing and wanted to help give us an idea. She doesn’t live close by but was making a trip here and brought the recipe the entire way just for us! What a perfect time to share this recipe, being that we are sharing recipes from her cookbook.
Little Chef D helped make this recipe to surprise her sisters when they came home from school. She was super excited to use the hand mixer to mix the eggs. Little Chef H was sitting right beside watching every move and decided she also wanted to help use the hand mixer. I loved that Little Chef D was patient enough to let Little Chef H help hold the mixer.
All the rest of the ingredients were then added in the bowl and everything was combined until smooth.
First the flour seemed to fly out of the bowl, then the batter became very thick, then it smoothed out. The final result was a thick batter that sticks to a spoon.
The waffle iron was ready. We had to push the batter off of the spoon with our fingers being careful not to touch the hot waffle iron. Then the lid was closed and the batter was smooshed. When the light turned from red to green it was ready to be transferred to a cooling rack. We dusted ours with powdered sugar, but frosting would have been great!
When Little Chef A and C came home from school they looked at the Waffle Brownies and thought we made them chocolate waffles. In a way they are, I suppose. We ate them all before dinner! This recipe makes about 8 waffles, however the sizes vary so much its hard to calculate a yield. Let’s just say, if you are making these for a party one batch will not suffice.
