Pancake Tuesday Chocolate Waffles

My good friend Amber and I share the same birthday. She gave this wonderful piece of cooking history to me. What a fun gift is has been. It is interesting to see what people ate in the 50's. Some food I am pretty sure was based on a dare.

This recipe is not one of those. Chocolate waffles served with ice cream and chocolate sauce is a fun change.

Chocolate Waffles 
(The General Foods Kitchens Cookbook 2nd edition 1959)

2 cups cake flour
2 tea baking powder
3/4 tea salt
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup milk
5 Tb butter, melted
2 squares unsweetened chocolate, melted

Mix chocolate and butter together. Set aside. Whisk dry ingredients. Beat eggs and add milk to blend. Add butter mixture, milk mixture, and flour until just mixed. Cook and serve with ice cream and chocolate sauce.
