The day before making, heat 3/4 cup milk to nearly boiling (microwave is fine) and add 5 tablespoons of finely ground coffee of your choice, I prefer espresso or French Roast.

When ready to make, start warming up your Great American Waffle Iron. Rotate every minute or so. If the waffle iron is not at least 350, the batter is likely to stick.

Dry Ingredients:

2 cups flour

4 tablespoons coco powder (I prefer dark)

3 Tablespoons sugar

1 Tablespoon Corn starch

1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

Combine all dry ingredients

Whisk together 2 eggs and 1/3 cup vegetable oil

drain milk and coffee mixture through a strainer

combine coffee-milk and buttermilk to make 2 cups of liquid

combine with egg and oil mixture

whisk together dry and wet ingredients.

*Note: some flours more readily absorb liquid better than others. You may need to add a bit more buttermilk. You want the batter to flow not pile up in the middle. Feel free to adjust ingredients a little. Have fun.

If you don't want to use buttermilk, use regular milk instead, and use 1 tablespoon baking powder, not the soda.

Home made coffee flavored whipping cream

in a stand mixer, add 1 cup of heavy whipping cream, 1 tablespoon of sugar. Whip for several minutes until stiff. Add some milk / coffee concentrate, or instant coffee.
