BRUNCH: Chocolate Stout Waffles

Heres another chocolate recipe for Valentine’s Day…

When I was in college we called the trip to the dining hall on the weekends the “brunch bus.”  Even though we walked, albeit a mere couple of hundred feet to the dining hall there we at least a dozen of us who all met and made the walk together to share breakfast in varying states of soberity. Generally there were rounds of obnoxious and comical phone calls from room to room rousing all our friend to wake up for the Brunch bus.

Had these been on the menu back in my college days we probably would have gotten up a little earlier for breakfast.

Chocolate Stout Waffles

This recipe was inspire by my friend Chrissy who mentioned a vegan recipe for these waffles is available in the book Vegan Brunch, by the same ladies who did Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World.  I haven’t seen the original recipe so I snooped around the internet and finally just figured I try my own and see how it came out.

1 1/3 c all purpose flour

1/3  cocoa

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/3 c sugar

1 c buttermilk ( 1 c milk, 1 tsp vinegar)

3 eggs

3/4 cup +1 tbsp chocolate stout

1/4 c canola oil

1 tsp vanilla

Combine dry ingredients: flour, soda, salt, and cocoa.  Whisk eggs, oil, buttermilk, stout, and vanilla and pour into dry ingredients.

Heat waffle iron, and grease with canola oil, either spraying, or brushing oil on iron with a pastry brush. Pour 1/2c mixture into iron.  Close iron and cook.

I garnished these with homemade whipped cream, strawberries, and maple syrup.  Most folks tend to prefer chocolate syrup which is also lovely.

If you want to make these vegan, first I’d say get Vegan Brunch and use that recipe, other wise, use soymilk instead of the buttermilk, and omit the eggs.  I actually forgot to put eggs in so the first couple waffles I made were egg free. They were slightly heavier, not in a bad way, just dense– more brownie like and didn’t fall out of the waffle iron when they were done.  Still very good.  Adding the eggs made the mixture a little runnier but the waffles lighter and crispier.

      stout is a dark beer– guiness being one of the most popular brands of stout. You can use guiness, murphy’s…whatever really. Young’s and brooklyn lager are two companies that make a stout with an extra chocolate taste to them. Stout has a chocolatey flavor as it is.
