Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 200ml milk
  • 130g self-raising flour , sieved
  • 20g cocoa powder , sieved
  • 20g caster sugar
  • 60g butter , melted
  • 1 tsp orange essence
  • 1 large orange , zested
  • 25g dark chocolate , roughly chopped, plus extra to serve

To serve

  • segmented , maple syrup, grated chocolate and whipped cream

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat a waffle maker, or if you don’t have one, use a griddle pan (see tip, below). Meanwhile, mix the eggs and milk in a jug.

  • STEP 2

    Combine the flour, cocoa and sugar in a bowl, then gradually whisk in the egg and milk mixture until there are no lumps. Slowly pour in the melted butter, still whisking, then add the orange essence, zest and chocolate.

  • STEP 3

    Pour a ladleful of the batter into the waffle iron or griddle pan (see below), and cook for 5-6 mins, then repeat – don’t worry if the waffles look dark, it’s simply the cocoa. Cut in half and top with the oranges, maple syrup, more chocolate and whipped cream.

RECIPE TIPS
DON'T HAVE A WAFFLE MAKER?

If you don’t have a waffle maker, you can use a non-stick griddle pan. Heat the pan, lightly oil it and pour in the mix. Leave undisturbed for a few minutes. When the mix is almost set on top and golden with deep charred lines underneath, turn it over with a wide spatula or tongs. It will come away easily when it’s well cooked on the base.
