2 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup butter, melted and cooled
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon vinegar
Red food coloring (we recommend gel food color)
Grease waffle iron and begin preheating according to manufacturer instructions.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs, buttermilk, butter, vanilla, and vinegar with a whisk until thoroughly combined. Add red food coloring until it is slightly darker than the shade you want since it will lighten a little while it cooks.
Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and fold to combine thoroughly. Cook waffles according to your waffle iron instructions and size. In most cases, they should be done when they stop steaming. Serve with whipped cream or a cream cheese frosting.
