Preheat waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions.

In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.

My family ate them ALL. I followed the recipe exactly and had no problems. This is a family keeper. Thanks. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this as a dessert. The consistency of the batter was great - I didn't have any of the problems of some of the other reviewers. I will note it is super important that the eggs are room temperature, otherwise the melted butter - even cooled - will start to solidify when you add it to the eggs. Also, the final result was more savory than sweet. I dusted with powdered sugar, and drizzled with chocolate syrup. It would also be delish with ice cream, or a sweetened fruit purée. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very tasty! An excellent addition to our waffle repertoire, with or without the chips! item not reviewed by moderator and published
We did a mix of whole wheat, oat and white flour. "Best waffles ever - tastes just like lava cake!" - my son. . item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these for breakfast this morning and they were very good. I used about half the amount of buttermilk and half the amount of cocoa powder, based on other reviews. I topped with strawberries and whipped cream, yummy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I really liked this. I made it gluten free using Carole's sorghum blend in place of the flour and added 1 tsp xanthan and doubled the vanilla. My kids loved it. Thank you!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The best waffles I ever ate! A major morning chocolate fix. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a great waffle even with some modifications to make it healthier. I replaced half of the flour with whole wheat flour. I also replaced 2 oz of butter with 3 T of butter and 3 T of ground flax seed. (3 T of flax seed is equivalent to 1 T of butter. I also replaced some of the vanilla extract with almond extract. Since I did not have buttermilk, I made up 2 cups of milk where 2 T of the milk was replaced with lemon juice. (I let that sit in a container for 5 min.. I put cherry compote on top of the waffle. The cherry compote was cherry simmered with almond extract, lemon juice, honey, and water. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were very good. However my batter was a little runny. I added a little more flour and sugar. We just ate them like cookies. We didn't use any syrup or anything. Very good! item not reviewed by moderator and published
a little less cocoa powder makes it better, otherwise the taste of the cocoa powder is too strong! item not reviewed by moderator and published
