These are perfect for a naughty Sunday breakfast. Warm, crisp, light and chocolatey, they are guaranteed to beat away those winter blues. It’s well worth investing in a waffle iron – they aren’t too expensive and who can say no to homemade weekend waffles?
4 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
2 eggs, separated
110g butter, melted
90g chopped chocolate
Mix together all dry ingredients. Add egg yolks, milk and butter and mix well. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff, then fold into the mixture. Ladle batter into a hot buttered waffle iron and cook for around 3 minutes.
To make chocolate sauce, heat the cream to scorching point (when you see those first few bubbles), then pour onto the chopped chocolate. Stir from the centre with a spatula to emulsify and pour generously onto your hot waffles. Mmmm-mm.
