Waffles with Chocolate Sauce
For the waffles, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, fully incorporating after each egg. Stir together the flour, baking powder, and ground almonds. Stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture.
Grease the waffle iron with a little butter and ladle in the batter. Bake until golden brown.
Chop the chocolate coarsely and melt with the cream over a hot water bath.
Serve the waffles dusted with powdered sugar and drizzled with chocolate sauce. Top with a dollop of whipped cream if desired.
