Chocolate: Understood By Any Tongue

Chocolate Waffles

Waffles de Chocolate

Our new Russian friend treated us to a nice Onces last Thursday. Not only did she share her English tea and introduce us to el requesón, she also served us some of her home-made chocolate waffles.

Yesterday, she emailed me the recipe. Since it was in Spanish, I had the opportunity to practice my translation skills. I only had to look up a few of the terms. . .

How did I do? Is my English starting to sound Colombian?

Chocolate Waffles

100 g ground nuts
125 g solid chocolate
150 g butter
125 g sugar
4 eggs
350 g flour
40 g baking powder
250 ml milk
125 ml cream
Toast the nuts in a frying pan without grease. Break the
chocolate into pieces and melt it in a double boiler. Stir in the
butter, sugar and eggs. Sift the flour with the baking powder
and mix in the nuts, milk, cream and chocolate mix. Allow it to
rest for an hour before making the waffles with portions of the batter.
Serve with cherries or other fruits, ice cream and whipped cream.
