Sinfully good.


  • 4 oz unsweetened chocolate
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup dairy sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup walnuts, chopped
  • Vegetable shortening for the grids
  • confectioners' sugar


Preheat waffle iron. In a small, heavy saucepan or double boiler, melt chocolate and butter over low heat.

In a medium-size bowl sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, granulated sugar and cocoa powder.

In a small bowl, whip egg whites until soft peaks are formed. Fold into batter, which will be thick.

Lightly brush hot griddle with shortening or oil. Pour enough batter to fill two-thirds of the waffle iron. Push batter out to the edges with a wooden spoon. Cook until crisp and a dark rich brown. Do not overcook. Repeat with the remaining batter.

To serve, cut waffles into quarter sections. Sprinkle powdered sugar through a fine sieve over the top.

Recipe for Smoked Salmon and Dill Waffles


  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 tbsp double-acting baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 oz smoked salmon
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and finely diced
  • 1/4 cup snipped fresh dill
  • Softened cream cheese and finely chopped scallions or sour cream and salmon caviar for topping.


Preheat your waffle iron. Melt the butter; reserve. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. In another bowl, whisk together the milk and eggs until well blended. Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and whisk gently to combine. Fold in the salmon, onion, dill and melted butter.

Lightly butter the grids of your iron, if needed. Brush or spray the grids again only if subsequent waffles stick.

Spread the batter evenly over the grids with a metal spatula or wodden spoon, stopping right before the edge. Close the lid and bake until golden and crisp. Serve immediately or keep the waffles warm while you continue baking the others.
