Prep 10 mins
Bake 3 mins per waffle
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 14 ounce can unsweetened coconut milk
6 tablespoons butter, melted
3/4 cup coconut
1/2 cup chocolate-flavored ice cream topping
1/2 cup chopped toasted almonds
Sweetened whipped cream or powdered sugar (optional)
1. In a medium bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and a dash of salt. Make a well in center of flour mixture; set aside. In another medium bowl lightly beat eggs; stir in coconut milk and melted butter. Stir in coconut. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy).
2. Pour 12 cup batter onto grids of a preheated, lightly greased waffle baker. Close lid quickly; do not open until done. Bake according to manufacturers directions (about 3 minutes or until golden brown). When done, use a fork to lift waffle off grid. Repeat with remaining batter. Drizzle baked waffles with topping, sprinkle with almonds, and top with whipped cream or dust with powdered sugar. Serve warm. Makes 8 waffles.
