Make delicious brownies in a waffle iron – AgriNews

Looking for an easy, last-minute chocolate dessert idea that doesn’t require heating up the oven on a hot September day?

Here’s a clever idea that you and your kids will enjoy: make delicious homemade brownies in a waffle maker.

Then, garnish them with fresh seasonal fruits like raspberries or spoon vanilla ice cream on top. Yum!

Brownies in a waffle iron

Servings: 4


3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 cup of sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Pinch of salt

1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla


Melt the butter and cool. In a bowl, let your children measure and mix the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, combine the butter, eggs and vanilla.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir with a large spoon until combined, being careful not to over mix as it will be a thick consistency.

Generously spray or brush a waffle iron with oil and set over medium heat. When ready, an adult can pour some of the brownie mixture onto the waffle maker. I use an ice cream scoop. Vary the amount depending on the size of your waffle maker so it doesn’t spill out the sides when closed.

When the batter is cooked – our family likes them crispy on the outside – carefully remove the “waffle brownie” from the waffle maker with a spatula and let cool slightly on a wire rack or plate.

To serve: Sprinkle warm waffle brownie portions with sifted icing sugar, raspberries, a scoop of vanilla ice cream or fudge sauce. Store leftover brownies in an airtight container or in your freezer.

Shortcut idea: use your favorite store-bought brownie mix. I used the Pillsbury Family Size Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix for delicious results.
