Dark Chocolate Waffles

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (280 grams)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder (48 grams)
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs - separated
  • 1 3/4 cup whole milk (420 milliliters)
  • 1/3 cup sunflower oil (80 milliliters)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mascarpone Whip

  • 1 cup mascarpone (210 grams)
  • 2/3 cups double cream (160 milliliters)
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • powdered sugar (for serving)
  • fresh raspberries (for serving)


Make the dark chocolate waffles

  • In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
  • In a separate medium bowl, beat together the egg yolks, milk, oil, sugars and vanilla extract.
  • In a separate medium bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form.
  • Add the flour mixture into the egg yolk mixture, and mix until well combined. Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the batter. The batter will be a thick liquid consistency.
  • Pour or scoop the mixture into a hot waffle iron (I used a ¼ cup measuring cup for each waffle, but waffle makers vary). Cook waffles for 3½ - 4 minutes, until cooked through. Once done, transfer the waffles to a cooling rack.

Make the mascarpone whip

  • Add the mascarpone, double cream and sugar into a medium bowl. Slice the vanilla pod in half and scrape out the seeds into the bowl.
  • Using a handheld beater, beat everything together on low speed until just mixed, about 10 seconds.

To serve

  • Top the dark chocolate waffles with a generous scoop of the mascarpone whip, a few raspberries and a dusting of powdered sugar.
