GF Chocolate Waffles with vanilla mascarpone Makes 6-8
2 teaspoons good quality vanilla essence
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 ½ cups tapioca flour
1 ½ cups almond meal
½ cup dark cocoa
¾ cup sugar (I like to use coconut sugar)
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon GF baking powder
¼ cup melted butter
4 free-range eggs
To serve: raspberry coulis or fresh berries
Mix together the mascarpone, vanilla and maple syrup. Place in the fridge until ready to use.
Place all the waffle ingredients into a food processor or blender and blitz until smooth. Heat the waffle iron and grease well. Cook ¼ cups of batter until cooked through. The amount of batter required will differ depending on your machine so do a test waffle first and adjust accordingly. Keep the cooked waffles in a warm oven until you have cooked all the batter. Serve immediately with vanilla mascarpone on
