Valentine’s Sharing Waffles

Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to indulge in a sweet treat, whether you’re enjoying a night in with family, friends, or your partner. Waffles are the perfect desert (or main event) to celebrate the most romantic day of the year as they are easy to make, and ideal for sharing!

You will need:

Waffle maker
75g plain flour
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp caster sugar
1 tsp baking powder
100ml milk, plus 1 tbsp
1 egg
20g dark chocolate, 20g white chocolate broken into pieces
4 tbsp whipping cream
2 scoops soft-scoop vanilla ice cream
50g raspberries

Method:

Add flour, cocoa, sugar and baking powder to a large bowl, and gradually stir in the milk and egg mix until combined. Whisking until the batter is completely smooth, and double check for any lumps. You can make the batter up to 2 hrs before and leave at room temperature, or alternatively make up to 4 hrs ahead and chill.
Preheat your waffle maker and brush with a little oil. Pour in half the batter, close and cook for 3 mins, or longer depending on your machine. Once cooked, repeat with the remaining batter. Alternatively, if you don’t have a waffle maker you can cook half the mixture on a preheated griddle brushed with oil for 2 mins each side over a medium heat, then repeat with the remaining batter.
Melt the chocolate with the cream over a medium heat and whisk constantly. Once melted, take off the heat and add 1 tbsp milk to thicken the chocolate mixture.

Halve each waffle and arrange on a large plate. Serve with your favourite sweet of savoury topping such as ice cream and raspberries, chocolate sauce, or bacon and maple syrup.
