Chocolate-cinnamon waffles with salted caramel sauce

Yields 8 (6-inch) waffles


For the waffles:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1-3/4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter

For the salted caramel sauce:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Preheat your waffle iron to high heat.
  2. Add all the dry ingredients to a medium bowl and whisk to combine.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the egg, milk and vegetable oil, and mix to combine.
  4. Form a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add about 1/3 of the wet mixture. Stir to incorporate. Continue in increments until all of the wet mixture is added to the dry and the batter is smooth.
  5. Brush the 1 tablespoon of butter over the waffle grill. Pour the batter into the waffle iron and cook until done.
  6. As the waffles cook, prepare the salted caramel sauce by adding the butter and sugar to a saucepan over medium-high heat. Mix together until the sugar dissolves. Allow the mixture to boil, stirring. After a few minutes the mixture will turn a caramel color and thicken.
  7. Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the heavy cream, a little at a time, whisking to combine it. Add the sea salt to the mixture.
  8. Allow the caramel to cool slightly, and then transfer it to a heat-resistant serving container.
  9. Serve the waffles warm with the salted caramel sauce.

These waffles are wonderful!
