2 large egg yolks

1 cups whole milk

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 cups all-purpose flour

cup unsweetened cocoa powder

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

2 large egg whites

2 tablespoons light brown sugar

Heat a waffle iron.

In a medium bowl, combine the egg yolks, milk, baking powder, flour, cocoa powder, and melted butter and mix until almost smooth. In the bowl of a mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form; then add the brown sugar and continue whipping until stiff. Fold the whipped egg whites into the batter.

For each waffle, pour to 1 cup of the batter (or the amount recommended by the waffle-iron maker) onto the waffle iron; bake as directed by the manufacturer.

Serve these with vanilla yogurt or whipped cream and fresh raspberries, and a sprinkling of confectioners' sugar.

Serves three to four.
