Sweet Waffle Donut with Chocolate Sauce + Blog Hop


I have to be honest with you – when this Donut Blog Hop came about, I had full intention of doing an amazing bowl of Donut Holes.  But, I had a major KITCHEN FAIL!  Like… they tasted AWFUL.  I am excited to take another shot at them though, now that a few of my pro cooking blogger friends have shared their recipes and secrets (see below)!

After my kitchen fail, I decided to share this recipe for a Waffle Donut!  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.  And, 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!

Waffle Donut
  1. 3/4 cup sugar
  2. 3/4 cup brown sugar
  3. 6 tablespoons shortening
  4. 2 egg yolks and 1 whole egg, well beaten
  5. 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  6. 5 cups flour
  7. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  8. 1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
Chocolate Sauce
  1. 1/2 cup butter
  2. 4 tablespoons cocoa
  3. 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  4. Milk
  1. Start by creaming the sugar and shortening together. Then add eggs.
  2. In a separate bowl combine all the dry ingredients and mix.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  1. 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!
