Maple Strawberry Chocolate Chip Waffles
My teenage daughter made these beautiful waffles last weekend. We had strawberries so she decided to slice some up for her waffle and look at this beautiful presentation! She made her waffle look like a spring flower. Her waffle looked so pretty that we decided we should take pictures.
This waffle recipe is one that she makes often, but we don’t always have strawberries to put on top. Usually for waffles or pancakes, we use a lighter syrup, but she decided this delightful breakfast also required real maple syrup. She was clearly loving every bite of her waffle.
The basic waffle recipe is from Taste of Home. She adds Mexican vanilla and Ghirardelli mini chocolate chips to take these waffles over the top. You can use part whole wheat flour and you can cut down on the amount of butter/add a bit of yogurt if you want to cut calories, but it really isn’t quite the same. If you want a crispy, buttery, puffy waffle, make it just like this.
This is my decadent post for the week … I’ll be back to healthy recipes again tomorrow. Promise.
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1 - 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1/4 - 1/2 cup quality mini chocolate chips
- Fresh strawberries
- Real maple syrup
- Plug in your waffle iron to heat it.
- In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt.
- Separate the eggs, putting the yolk in with the flour mixture and the white in another small mixing bowl.
- Using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until stiff. Set them aside.
- Now, add the milk, butter and vanilla to the flour mixture and stir until smooth. Fold in the egg whites, then gently stir in the chocolate chips, adjusting the amount of chocolate to suit your taste.
- Spray the waffle iron with cooking spray, then pour the batter into the waffle iron. Close the iron and cook until the waffle is a nice golden brown. Repeat until the batter is gone.
- Serve the waffle topped with fresh, sliced strawberries and drizzle with a bit of maple syrup. If you like, sprinkle a little powdered sugar on top too.
