Chocolate Waffles with Vanilla Mascarpone
These gluten free chocolate waffles are an unashamedly decadent brunch! They could also be the perfect 'pick me up' for your loved ones as we hunker down in Level 4 CONVID isolation. A must try with a glass of sparkling rosé (you're welcome parents!).
1 ½ cups tapioca flour (or standard flour)
1 ½ cups almond meal
½ cup dark cocoa
¾ cup sugar (regular or coconut sugar)
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ cup melted butter
½ cup milk (or non-dairy alternative)
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
2 tablespoons maple syrup
Whisk together the mascarpone, vanilla and maple syrup. Place in the fridge until ready to use. Place all the waffle ingredients into a food processor or blender and blitz until smooth.
Heat the waffle iron and grease well. Cook ¼ cups of batter until cooked through. The amount of batter required will differ depending on your machine so do a test waffle first and adjust accordingly. Keep the cooked waffles in a warm oven until you have cooked all the batter. Serve waffles with a side of vanilla mascarpone... and fresh berries or coulis.
Makes 6 to 8 waffles.
