Brownie Waffle Cakes

Let me repeat that – BROWNIE. WAFFLE. CAKES. They’re pretty amazing.

We’re making sweet, fudgy brownies into the ultimate party dessert. It’s always easiest to make individually-portioned no-plate-required foods when you’re cooking for a big group – and especially for the Super Bowl, everything should be sports-color-coordinated. And definitely covered in sprinkles.

Brownie Waffle Cakes Have you seen those all-edges brownie pans? We’re making real all-over-edges brownies. If you love the crunchy outsides, this is what you didn’t know you needed in your life.

Sometimes I’m all about decorating… and sometimes I could care less, I just want dessert. These are great either way! No fancy icing skills required if you do decide to decorate, just a quick drizzle. Sprinkles, nuts, and powdered sugar are all easy ways to kick these up a little.

Brownie Waffle Cakes

Brownies are already the magical lovechild between fudge and cake and they get even better pressed into cookies. Bonus, because they’re already in convenient individual portions, you don’t end up cutting squares that are just a liiittle bit bigger each time! (Also way less noticeable when you sneak some for yourself before showing up to the party.)

  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ t. instant espresso
  • ½ cup + 2 T. boiling water
  • 2 oz. unsweetened chocolate
  • ½ cup + 2 T. vegetable oil
  • 4 T. butter melted
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 t. vanilla
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 t. salt
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • almond bark or glaze melted (optional)
  • sprinkles, nuts, powdered sugar, etc. (optional)
  1. Preheat your waffle iron.
  2. Whisk together cocoa powder, instant espresso, and boiling water. Add unsweetened chocolate and continue whisking until melted.
  3. Incorporate butter and oil, then whisk in eggs, egg yolks, and vanilla until smooth.
  4. Whisk in both sugars and salt. When fully incorporated, add flour and mix just until combined.
  5. Spray the waffle iron with nonstick spray and drop a spoonful of batter into each quadrant.
  6. Close and let bake until the regular ‘done’ signal. Waffles will seem too soft when you take them out - they crisp up as soon as they cool off.
  7. Let the brownie waffles cool on a wire rack.
  8. Optionally drizzle with melted chocolate or glaze and top with sprinkles, chopped nuts, powdered sugar, or any of your other favorites – this is a great, easy way to add extra flavor & festive colors!

These can be a little trickier to remove from the iron than breakfast waffles. Spray liberally and use chopsticks to help loosen the cakes.
