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!
