World Chocolate Day is just around the corner and we've got the perfect recipe to get you started. Try these delicious chocolate orange waffles for just 375 calories per serving.


2 eggs
200ml milk
130g self-raising flour , sieved
20g cocoa powder , sieved
20g caster sugar
60g butter , melted
1 tsp orange essence
1 large orange , zested
25g dark chocolate , roughly chopped, plus extra to serve



1. Heat a waffle maker, or if you don’t have one, use a griddle pan (see tip, below). Meanwhile, mix the eggs and milk in a jug.

2. Combine the flour, cocoa and sugar in a bowl, then gradually whisk in the egg and milk mixture until there are no lumps. Slowly pour in the melted butter, still whisking, then add the orange essence, zest and chocolate.

3. Pour a ladleful of the batter into the waffle iron or griddle pan (see below), and cook for 5-6 mins, then repeat – don’t worry if the waffles look dark, it’s simply the cocoa. Cut in half and top with the oranges, maple syrup, more chocolate and whipped cream.
