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.
