Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake Waffles Recipe

Yield: 4 waffles

Ingredients

for the waffles
dry ingredients
    • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
    • 1/3 cup cacao or cocoa powder
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
wet ingredients
    • 1 cup almond milk (or other nondairy milk)
    • 2/3 cup plain coconut milk yogurt
    • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
    • 50-60 drops of NuNaturals Pure Liquid Lo Han Supreme Sweetener ( or 3 tablespoons coconut sugar)
    • vegan oil spray (for spraying the waffle iron)
for the whipped cream
    • 1 can of coconut milk, refrigerated overnight
    • 1/4 teaspoon NuNaturals LoSweet Pure Extract Sweetener (or 1 teaspoon powdered sugar/xylitol)
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
for the shortcake
    • 3 cups hulled and quartered strawberries
    • cacao nibs for sprinkling (optional)
for the syrup (optional)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1-2 tablespoons cacao or cocoa powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat waffle maker according to machine instructions.
  2. Make the waffle batter. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. In a small bowl, mix together the wet ingredients. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, combine and let sit for about 10 minutes.
  3. While the batter is resting, make your whipped cream. I followed Angela’s instructions, though I used 1/4 teaspoon of LoSweet Pure Extract. Freezing the bowl prior is key, though. Just follow Angela’s instructions.
  4. Once your whipped cream is made, your strawberries prepared, and your batter has rested, begin making your waffles. Make your waffles using your machine’s instructions, making sure to spray the waffle iron with a little oil in between each waffle.
  5. Once the waffles are made, you can serve them one of three ways: 1.) Top one waffle with whipped cream and strawberries, top with cacao nibs and serve; 2.) Top one waffle with whipped cream and strawberries, then top with another waffle and repeat. Slice as you would a cake and serve; 3.) Cut a waffle into quarters. Top one quarter with coconut cream and strawberries, top with another quarter, repeat and serve. Repeat with the other two quarters. You can serve it as is, or top with some of the chocolate maple syrup, but we thought it was fine without it. Enjoy!

Top 5 microwave recipes

More and more chefs as well as amateur and occasional cooks are coming to realise that the modern microwave should be a main player in your culinary endeavours. There are some myths and half-baked untruths that are uttered about microwaves; one of the more common is that you can’t use microwaves to cook anything fancy such as potato gratin. Look at the following video and think again:

Here you’ll see Daniel Galmiche, the celebrity French Michelin star chef visit one of his suppliers of quality beef, and discuss why the quality of the  environment in which the animals are raised, affects the texture and flavour. Now living in England, he is Executive Head Chef at The Vineyard at Stockcross in Berkshire and

regularly appears on regional and national television and in the media.

Recently he appeared on BBC`s Saturday Kitchen with James Martin.

What comes across is the passion of both the chef and his supplier in creating, supplying and the cooking the best quality beef. The last section of the video shows Daniel cooking beef and potato gratin in his Panasonic combination Microwave oven. As he prepares the dish we hear how by cooking virtually everything in the microwave, all the goodness and flavour is retained. The beef is seasoned and seared in a pan while the gratin cooks for 25 minutes in the microwave oven. It would take 45 minutes or longer in a conventional oven. The results look delicious.

If you prefer something more spicy and oriental, then here’s a great recipe for Chinese Beef Casserole. You’ll need a large casserole dish with a lid. It will serve four.

The ingredients:

3 garlic cloves, crushed

2.5cm (1”) grated ginger

1 bunch spring onions, sliced

1 red chilli, deseeded and thinly sliced

5ml (1tsp) Chinese five spice powder

2 star anise

10ml (2tsps) light muscovado sugar

30ml (2tbsp) Chinese cooking wine

30ml (2tbsps) dark soy sauce

800g (1lb12oz) casserole beef

25g (1oz) plain flour, seasoned

300ml (½ pt) beef stock

Cooking Instructions

Place the garlic, ginger, onion, chilli, five spice, anise, sugar, wine and soy in casserole dish and cook on HIGH MICROWAVE for 3 mins.

Toss the beef in the seasoned flour and add to the casserole dish stirring well.

Cover and place casserole on the base of the oven and cook on CONVECTION 160ºC + WARM MICROWAVE for 1hr 15mins – 1 ½ hours.

Serve and garnish with chopped coriander or Chinese leaves. Don’t hesitate to browse the Internet since there are many microwave recipes out there that you may want to try some day!
