Chocolate Chip and Kahlua Liqueur Waffles – Let’s Get Cooking, Gainesville, Florida–and alligators
My brother Mike adapted the Heart Smart Bisquick waffle recipe into an even tastier version –
Preparation time: 3 minutes
Bake time: 5 minutes per batch
Spray waffle iron and preheat.
2 cups of Bisquick Heart Smart mix
1/3 cup Kahlua or Tia Maria liqueur
1 cup milk
Chocolate chips – to your taste. (Mike says the small chips tend to scorch less than the big chocolate chips).
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
Stir ingredients until moist.
Pour onto the center of the hot greased waffle iron enough mixture to cover the waffle plates. Mike says the chocolate chips tend to stay in the bottom of the mixing bowl, so you will need to help them get onto the waffle iron.
Close the waffle lid.
Bake about five minutes, until the steaming stops. (The first one will take a little longer).
Carefully remove the waffle. Enjoy.
Continue the process of cooking the waffles.
** To reheat (as if there is a chance any are left over): Heat waffles in a toaster until crisp.
High altitude (3,500-6,500′) – increase liquid to 1 1/2 cups.
This might not be the healthiest breakfast, but it is delicious. Barry tried to mitigate the dietary impact by using sugar-free syrup.
Besides us eating well in Gainesville and enjoying visiting my brother and his wife, Erika, I wanted to see alligators.
We found some.
I didn’t want to get too close.
The closest view I got of alligators was on the front page of the Gainesville paper:
Gainesville with its University of Florida alligator logo means that we saw “gators” everywhere.
Come visit Gainesville — and try Mike’s Chocolate Chip and Kahlua waffles, but don’t eat so many that you can’t run away from the alligators.
