  • Waffle maker


  • 1.5 cup of All-purpose flour
  • 4 tbsp of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1.5 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp of vanilla essence


  • Combine dry ingredients: Add all-purpose flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt and mix until well combined.
  • Combine wet ingredients: Pour buttermilk, unsalted butter, eggs and vanilla essence to a bowl and whisk until well combined.
  • Chocolate waffle batter: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir. Do not overmix the batter and make sure there are still a few lumps.
  • Chocolate waffles: Heat the waffle maker and add the batter. Cook for 10 minutes or follow the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Serve chocolate waffles with your favorite toppings.


  • If you have not got a waffle maker, you can still make this recipe. You can make these waffles with a griddle pan. You need to grease your pan before pouring in your batter. I picked this tip from Jamie Oliver from one of his pan waffle recipes. So basically you would be making a griddle pan waffle. Feel free to divide your waffles into portions or serve them as a whole.
  • Don’t overmix your waffle batter. You want your waffles to be fluffy and light and overmixing can cause the opposite to occur. Stop while you still see some lumps in your batter.
  • If you are making your own buttermilk for this recipe, you will first make the buttermilk by adding 1.5 tablespoons of vinegar or lemon juice to 1.5 cups of whole milk. Stir and leave to stand for 15 minutes before using for the recipe.
