Holly’s Chocolate Waffles

Third year Geography student Holly shares her Chocolate Waffle rcipe for National Chocolate Week


The University of Reading has a strong relationship with chocolate as it is home to the International Cocoa Quarantine Centre. This provides cocoa producing countries with varieties of cocoa that are free from pests and diseases. This helps fight supply issues in the cocoa industry and ensures that it can flourish.

To celebrate national chocolate week (yes, that’s right, a whole week to celebrate chocolate!) I thought I would share my recipe for chocolate waffles. I have used a waffle iron to make these but you can make them in a sandwich toaster or in a grill pan. There aren’t too many ingredients for this recipe and it is super easy to make! This recipe should serve about 6-8 and only takes 15 minutes.


Firstly, the ingredients you will need are:      

  • 310g of plain flour
  • 170g caster sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 120ml milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons of melted butter
  • Non stick cooking oil spray
  • Icing sugar (optional)
  • Raspberries (optional)
  • Syrup (optional)

The utensils you will need are:

  • Waffle iron/ sandwich toaster/ grill pan
  • Mixing bowl
  • Wooden spoon


  1. To start, preheat your waffle iron/ sandwich toaster/ grill pan.
  2. In the mixing bowl stir together to flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and cocoa powder
  3. Then add the milk eggs and butter to the mixing bowl and mix until smooth
  4. Spray waffle iron/sandwich toaster/grill pan with non-stick cooking spray
  5. Pour a small amount of mixture into your waffle iron/sandwich toaster/grill pan
  6. Cook until golden. If using grill pan you will need to flip them to cook both sides
  7. Serve with your choice of toppings, I have chosen raspberries, icing sugar and syrup
  8. Enjoy!
