Chocolate Buttermilk Waffles

Happy International Waffle Day!

March 25th is celebrated as International Waffle Day in countries such as Denmark, Sweden, and Norway, which is also known as the Feast of Annunciation where waffles are typically eaten.

However, this version of a waffle is pretty decadent and was highly demanded by one particular 4-year-old in my house.

Chocolate Buttermilk Waffles

Preheat your waffle iron, spray with nonstick cooking spray, and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt, and cinnamon.

Separate 2 eggs : put the whites in a medium mixing bowl and place the yolks in a medium measuring cup. To the measuring cup, add vegetable oil, milk, coffee, and vanilla extract.

Using a rubber spatula, fold in the egg whites gently. The mixture does not have to be completely mixed together.
