Sweet Waffle Donut with Chocolate Sauce

Sharing is caring!

Sweet Waffle Donut with Chocolate Sauce  is the perfect combination of a waffle and donut which makes for the perfect breakfast! The whole family will love this tasty meal!

Breakfast is one of our favorite meals of the day! Sadly, 6 out 7 mornings a week, I just don’t have time (or I don’t get up early enough) to make anything amazing! But, once a week I love to make something extra yummy! These Sweet Waffle Donut’s are a personal favorite of mine!! Not only do I love this recipe, but it’s almost impossible to mess up! Intimidation be gone!! Really, anybody with a waffle iron can pull this one off!  

They are just mini waffles – approx 3×3 in size.  My favorite thing about them is that they warm up feeling and tasting like they do right out of the Waffle Iron! So, this is a great recipe to make a lot of to either keep in the fridge for the next few breakfasts or even freeze them!  


The flavor is sweet, but not at all overwhelming! Because I love the chocolate sauce, I generally try to have a fresh fruit on hand to lighten up my bite! Raspberries are a personal favorite to pair with them!



Sweet Waffle Donut w/ Chocolate Sauce

A quick and easy Waffle Donut topped off with a simple chocolate sauce and fresh Whipped Cream!


Waffle Donut

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons shortening
  • 2 egg yolks and 1 whole egg well beaten
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 5 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon grated nutmeg

Chocolate Sauce

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa
  • 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • Milk


  • Start by creaming the sugar and shortening together. Then add eggs.
  • In a separate bowl combine all the dry ingredients and mix.
  • Add the combined dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, alternating with the buttermilk! Mix until combined - mixture should be sticky. Do not over mix or the Waffle Donut may be dense.
  • Preheat waffle iron according to its directions. Take a stick of butter and just lightly coat the waffle iron. To keep the sizes of your Waffle Donuts the same, I like to use a small cookie scoop. But, not big deal if you don't have one. My scoops are approx 1 heaping tablespoon in size.

Instructions for the Chocolate Sauce

  • Melt together on low the butter and cocoa in a heavy sauce pan. Remove from heat and add the powdered sugar. Then add milk until desired consistency. Drizzle over the Waffle Donut and top off with some whipped cream!
