Waffleizer is a new website that takes your waffle iron in new directions, creatively tackling the question “Will it waffle?” So far, the blog has covered s’mores, bread pudding — and even a waffleburger. Here are some of our favorite Waffleizer picks.
Chocolate waffle cakes with cocoa nibs (pictured above)
–Adapted from a recipe by Martha Stewart
Makes about 18 cookies
1 stick butter
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt if using unsalted butter
1/4 cup dutch-process cocoa powder
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
Optional: 1/2 ounce cocoa nibs, whirred in food processor
Powdered sugar for dusting
1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Let cool slightly.
2. Put eggs, vanilla, and sugar in bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed until pale, 4 to 5 minutes. Mix in butter, salt, cocoa powder, cocoa nibs (if using) and the flour.
3. Heat a waffle iron until hot. Lightly grease iron with a neutral oil, such as canola. Spoon about 1 tablespoon batter onto center of each waffle-iron section to make 1 1/2-inch rounds. Close cover; cook until set, about 1 1/2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, bottom sides up. Let cool completely. Repeat with remaining batter, coating grids with oil after each batch. Dust with powdered sugar.
