From the Cuisinart Griddler waffle recipe booklet, this recipe makes 8 large waffles (serves 4-8 people).
1-1/2 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp kosher salt
6 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly (I use the microwave)
1-1/2 cups nonfat (skim) milk
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped semi-sweet chocolate chips (I use Toll House chips, and chop roughly with a knife)
1/4 cup confectioners sugar
Preheat the waffle maker to 400°F.
Combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl.
In a separate bowl, add the melted butter. Pour in the milk, beaten eggs and vanilla, and whisk until smooth. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients, and whisk to combine. With a rubber spatula, fold in the chocolate chips.
Spray the waffle maker with cooking spray (top and bottom plates). Spread half of the batter on the bottom plate, and close the top. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the waffles are as crisp as you like them.
Place the confectioners sugar in a fine-mesh strainer, and sprinkle over the waffles.
