Almond chocolate waffles

Mommy, I want chocolate waffles! This is what I heard constantly in the last days. Well, when your daughter is asking you to do some sweets, you need do them no matter how busy you are. And, when she is contributing too, it is not only about making a recipe but also about sharing and spending a beautiful time together.
This is how I ended up Sunday afternoon with a bake of chocolate waffles made in collaboration with my daughter. Adding ingredients one by one and mixing is like adding them in a big witch pot from children stories. Everything is magic with kids... how the composition come together and how, in the end, they take a waffle shape. Cooking is magic... but also the pleasure of eating should not be ignored.

  • 500ml warm milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 100g butter
  • 25g yeast
  • 400g all purpose flour
  • 100g almond powder
  • 50g sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla essence
  • a pinch of salt
  • 300g chocolate

  1. Mix all ingredients leaving the milk at the end.
  2. Add the milk slowly and mix until you get a creamy composition.
  3. Let it raise for 1h at room temperature.
  4. Use a waffle maker to bake the waffles. Use a small ladle to measure the exact quantity needed for each waffle.
