The Technique

Chocolate-Pecan Waffles

When a breakfast table upgrade is in order, Chocolate-Pecan Waffles are the answer. Everyday refrigerator & pantry staples elevate the standard instantly. The good news is that melting chocolate is not necessary as cocoa powder provides a decadence well worth a second helping & the old-fashioned cake blending technique of pouring hot liquid into the batter at the end of the mixing procedure produces a smooth consistency. Learn more about the technique that delivers a waffle with exceptional texture & flavor.

makes 11 waffles

2 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup hot water
1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans
Maple syrup or sorghum
Toasted pecans

Preheat the waffle maker. Whisk together the flour, the cocoa powder, the sugar, the baking powder & the salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, the milk & the oil. Pour over the flour mixture & whisk gently to combine. Whisk in the hot water. The mixture will be lumpy & a bit thin. Raise the lid & lightly grease the waffle grids with cooking spray. Pour 1/3 cup of the batter over each waffle square & spread it evenly over the grids with a small offset spatula, if necessary. Sprinkle with some of the pecans. Close the lid & cook 3 to 4 minutes or until the steam subsides. Remove the waffles with nylon end tongs. Repeat with the remaining waffle batter. Serve the waffles with maple syrup sorghum & additional toasted pecans.

The Procedure

Preheat the waffle maker at this time so that it is hot & ready to use once the final blending takes place. Use a fork to lightly beat the egg in a separate bowl. Measure the milk & the oil, then blend them all together.

Blend the ingredients together using the whisk. Do not over mix the batter. A few lumps are fine.

The Hot Water

The old-fashioned cake blending technique of adding boiling water at the end of a chocolate cake recipe works in the same fashion to bloom the cocoa powder by hydrating it as it has a tendency to dry out baked goods. This process also helps to smooth out the cocoa before cooking to prevent any lumps throughout the final waffles. Whisk in the hot water.

Whisk together the ingredients just until smooth. There may be a few lumps & that’s fine.
