Sunday Supper - Dark Waffle Cake


Years ago we visited the Boston Children's Museum with the kids. My favorite section was a re-creation of a 1930s-1940s house. On the coffee table of the living room was a book called Foods and Fashions of 1936, and in that book was a recipe from Gracie Allen. I copied it down, and we've made these waffles a few times. I just found the book online in one place, and it now goes for $50! This is really a dessert, but it is Sunday supper day, and anything goes, right?

Dark Waffle Cake

Cream 3/4 cup butter with 1 cup sugar.
Beat 4 egg yolks and add.
Sift 1 cup flour with 1/2 cup cocoa and 2 teaspoons baking powder.
Add to creamed mix, alternating with 1/3 cup milk.
Beat well.
Add 1/4 cup chopped nuts and 1 teaspoon vanilla.
Beat 4 egg whites till stiff and add.
Bake in hot waffle iron.
Serve with whipped cream.

This is delicious, especially with a glass of nice cold milk!
