Waffel al Cacao light
The waffles are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, cooked between two hot plates that give them the characteristic grilled appearance.
They are typical sweets from Northern Europe: Belgium, France, Germany, Scandinavia and the Netherlands.
In Italy there is a similar dessert in the Abbruzzese and Molisana tradition called “Ferratella”.
Waffels were prepared as a wish for good luck and good health during Lent.
They can be served with fruit, chocolate, maple syrup, cream, jam and much more.
In this recipe I propose a lighter version, without eggs, without yeast and without sugar.
Surely you ask yourself, what sweets are they then?
Try them and then you will tell me.
Ingredients for 2 waffles:
40 g of Rice Flour G.F. (I use Caputo)
80 ml of Sugar-free Almond milk ( I use Alpro )
140 ml of Pasteurized Egg white
10 g of Bitter Cocoa
In a bowl, add the sifted flour together with the cocoa, pour the milk and the egg white and mix with the whisk until the mixture is smooth and homogeneous.
Heat a waffle iron, ladle the mixture and wait for them to turn golden on both sides.
Serve them with fresh fruit, yogurt, maple syrup, agave or chocolate.
Tip: flavor the dough with orange peel or cinnamon powder, the flavor will be amazing!
