Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why not get creative with it? This is the perfect donut and waffle combination! And the sauce… MMMMMM… it adds the special touch. All you need to do to get started is break out that waffle iron.

Waffle  Donut Ingredients

  • ¾ cups sugar

  • 6 tablespoons shortening

  • ¾ cups brown sugar

  • 2 egg yolks

  • 1 whole egg

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 ¼ cup buttermilk

  • 5 cups flour

Chocolate Sauce Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter

  • 4 tablespoons cocoa

  • 3 ½ cup powder sugar

  • ½ cup milk


  • Start by creaming the sugar and shortening together. Then add eggs.

  • In a separate bowl combine all the dry ingredients and mix.

  • Add the combined dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, alternating with the buttermilk! Mix until combined – mixture should be sticky. Do not over mix or the Waffle Donut may be dense.

  • Preheat waffle iron according to its directions. Take a stick of butter and just lightly coat the waffle iron. To keep the sizes of your Waffle Donuts the same, I like to use a small cookie scoop. But, not big deal if you don’t have one. My scoops are approx 1 heaping tablespoon in size.

  • Instructions for the Chocolate Sauce

  • Melt together on low the butter and cocoa in a heavy sauce pan. Remove from heat and add the powdered sugar. Then add milk until desired consistency. Drizzle over the Waffle Donut and top off with some whipped cream!
