Sweet Waffle Donut w/ Chocolate Sauce
A quick and easy Waffle Donut topped off with a simple chocolate sauce and fresh Whipped Cream!
- 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
- 1/2 cup butter
- 4 tablespoons cocoa
- 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
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.
