Nutella Waffles

I meant to share these right before the weekend, but I can’t wait any longer. You see, I made these waffles back in February – yikes! – upon our return from San Diego. I couldn’t wait to be in my own kitchen again, and of course the first thing I went for was the jar of nutella waiting patiently for me in the pantry. And that’s why I can’t wait any longer to share these waffles, because you need them in your life now. You may want to halve the recipe if you’re not making them for company though, because we definitely had way too many waffles left over for the two of us. At least, until the next morning when I devoured the rest of them for breakfast (so, maybe you don’t want to halve the recipe…just saying). Enjoy!

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup nutella
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter

Preheat waffle maker to medium-high heat. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and vanilla.

In another large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture until smooth.

In a small sauce pan, melt the butter and nutella over low heat and stir until smooth. Then, stir the nutella mixture into the batter. Pour the batter into the wells of your waffle iron and cook as directed for your particular waffle maker (mine made about twelve 4″ waffles).

    They DO have such a rich chocolatey color! Yum. I’d definitely make the whole batch and eat the leftovers the next day.

    I halved the recipe and the batter was WAY too thin, even after adding more flour and some cornstarch. The waffles were mushy after cooking and just didn’t turn out at all. I would recommend using less milk if you half the recipe. I’m sad…I really wanted this to be a “come back to” for breakfast.

    Made these this morning. Taste was good but they turned out very floppy and that was disappointing….

    Loved these! But I struggled to find a good topping for them. Mine tasted like Nutella without sugar so I needed something to add. Maple syrup was not a good combo so I came up with topping these with sweetened ricotta. This added the sweetness they needed while also helping cut down on te dryness a waffle can have. So good! Thanks!!
