Perfect base for ice cream or whipped cream. And hot fudge or butterscotch sauce enhances this dessert as well ! These also freeze well. You can use an electric mixer - batter is thick.
Chocolate Brownie Waffles
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted
2 eggs, well beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups cake flour, sifted
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Work the shortening with a spoon until fluffy and creamy.[I use an electric mixer.] Gradually add sugar, while continuing to work with a spoon until light.
Add melted chocolate and eggs and blend well. Sift together the dry ingredients and add alternately with milk to shortening mixture. Add vanilla.
Bake on a heated waffle iron which has been sprayed with Pam. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream. Makes about 9 waffles which can be cut on the diagonal to make 18. Or using this waffle iron, you will get about 16 waffle sticks. Enjoy!
